After a bombshell report by New York Attorney General Letitia James confirmed Andrew Cuomo sexually harrassed multiple women Albany County District Attorney David Soares also confirmed the Democrat governor is under criminal investigation for his acts.
Fox News reports:
“I think after today’s presentation … it’s pretty clear that we have an obligation here, and thus we’ve reached out to the attorney general’s office seeking all of the evidence upon which they uncovered and relied upon to author their report,” Soares told NBC’s “Nightly News.”
Soares said the allegations against Cuomo led him and other prosecutors “to believe that criminal activity in fact had indeed taken place” but that his office will carry out its investigation before making any determinations about how to move forward.
In order to do that, however, prosecutors need a formal complaint, which requires the cooperation of at least one of the women, Soares said. His office has reached out to some of them, but he said that so far they have been unable to reach any.
“For any victim that’s out there who’s watching this transmission, please reach out to our office and we will conduct our investigation as discretely as possible,” he said.
