Attorney: Former Gov. Cuomo to file ethics complaint against AG James
Former Governor Andrew Cuomo will personally file an ethics complaint against Attorney General Letitia James, his attorney said Thursday.
Attorney Rita Glavin said at a press conference Cuomo will pursue the legal remedies after “revelations of obvious misconduct that occurred during the Attorney General’s ‘independent’ review.”
“There was evidence that there was perjury, and evidence there was witness tampering,” Glavin said. “The Attorney General did not look into this, and it warrants an investigation.”
The investigation refers to months of interviews and testimony-gathering, after 11 women claimed Cuomo sexually harassed them. The governor denied all claims, and apologized if he made anyone feel uncomfortable.
Glavin said today James ignored vital elements of the case, and selectively released evidence to further her own run for governor.
She is calling on James to release over all underlying evidence.
“There must be accountability and that’s what the actions announced today hope to achieve,” Glavin said in a press release.
