The Assembly Judiciary Committee got an update Wednesday on the investigation into various allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The committee met publicly for about 15 minutes in a Zoom meeting, before retiring into executive session.

Judiciary Chair and Assemblyman Charles Lavine reiterated the four-pronged focus of the investigation by New York City-based law firm Davis-Polk:

  • To find out if Gov. Cuomo used his office to sexually harass or assault women
  • To find out if the governor directed his staff to withhold or misrepresent information to be reported to the Legislature or other governmental entities regarding the effects of COVID-19 on New Yorkers
  • To find out if the governor had knowledge of his staff withholding information
  • To find out if the governor directed his staff to suppress or obstruct related investigations.

Lavine says the Cuomo was served a notice of retaliation back on March 15, so the governor can't retaliate against anyone who was a witness or potential witness.
