Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, is demanding that the new governor of New York, Kathy Hochul, cleans up the “criminal cesspool” surrounding the disgraced Cuomo brothers.
Speaking on Fox News today, Stefanik said: “Well, this is better late than never.
“I called for CNN to terminate Chris Cuomo back in August.
“For some time, we have known that Chris Cuomo is complicit in both the cover-up, but also the smearing and retaliation against the victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault of his brother, the former governor Andrew Cuomo, the worst governor in America.
“This should have happened a long time ago.
“I’m glad that CNN has taken this action.
“But there is still accountability that needs to be heard.
“There is a sitting head of the State University of New York who has been revealed as part of the efforts to retaliate against these women and was part of the criminal cover-up.
“And Kathy Hochul, the current governor of New York, needs to make sure that we completely clean house from the criminal cesspool and the corrupt cronies that supported Gov. Cuomo.
“That conflict of interest with having a brother interviewing Gov. Cuomo, it was like the Cuomo hour every single night on TV.
“That is not why people watch the news.
“They want fair and balanced.
“They want objective coverage, which is why CNN continues to spiral.
“And, to be honest with you, one of the reasons CNN numbers continued to go down is because they were so opposed with President Trump for so many years.
“Which was not objective.
“We know now they were perpetrators of the Russia hoax and so much false information.
“And the American people deserve the truth.
“They deserve objectivity.
“And that’s just not what they are getting at CNN,” she said.
