The New York Times is reporting that the FBI is investigating whether Gov. Cuomo and his senior aides provided false information about nursing home deaths from COVID to the Justice Department.

The Cuomo administration is under fire for undercounting the number of nursing home deaths from coronavirus.

The Times reports FBI agents have contacted lawyers for Cuomo’s aides and have interviewed senior officials with the state Department of Health.

The interviews included questions about data the Cuomo administration submitted to the Justice Department last year on COVID nursing home deaths.
