Kamala Harris ignores question on Gov. Cuomo sexual harassment allegations

While speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Vice President Kamala Harris ignored a question regarding New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s alleged sexual harassment scandal.

Harris spoke to reporters after the $1.9 trillion Covid relief plan was passed by the House of Representatives. At the end of the press conference, a reporter asked Harris to comment on the Gov. Cuomo scandal.

“Madame Vice President, do you have any comment on Gov. Cuomo?” the reporter asked. However, Harris walked out of the briefing room without addressing the question.

Harris has remained silent about claims against the Democratic Governor, despite loudly condemning Republican men accused of sexual misconduct.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki released a statement last week regarding Harris’s silence.

“I think the vice president’s view is she believes a woman should be treated with respect. Their voices should be heard,” Psaki said.

On Wednesday, a sixth woman came forward accusing Cuomo of inappropriate behavior. Cuomo has denied any wrongdoing and declared he will not resign from his position.

“As I said yesterday, I have never done anything like this,” Cuomo said in a statement Wednesday. “The details of this report are gut-wrenching. I am not going to speak to the specifics of this or any other allegation given the ongoing review, but I am confident in the result of the Attorney General’s report.”

‘Coordinated effort’ to hide Hunter Biden information: Treasury denies request for reports

The United States Treasury Department has denied Republicans’ request for reports and documents which deal with the President’s son, Hunter Biden. In a bizarre response, Treasury legislative affairs chief Jonathan Davidson sent a letter to the House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer saying they need more detail as to why the panel its seeking such “highly sensitive information.”

Apparently suspicious activity surrounding the President of the United States’ son doing business deals, foreign banking and transactions with overseas entities including China and Ukraine is not obvious enough.

Davidson’s letter did not acknowledge whether such reports on the Bidens exist, but instructed Comer that “improper disclosure” of such information can undermine the executive branch’s “conduct of law enforcement, intelligence, and national security activities.”

Comer responded that “this coordinated effort by the Biden Administration to hide information about President Biden and his family’s shady business schemes is alarming and raises many questions.”

Comer added the panel will continue to request the reports and will use “the power of the gavel to get them if needed.”

Bloomberg News reports:

Comer and other Republicans already said they have evidence that finances, credit cards, and bank accounts of Hunter and Joe Biden were commingled if not shared.

And in an interim report released in November, Republicans surmised that the Treasury Department has at least 150 SARs related to financial transactions of Biden family members.

Nonetheless, in his letter to Yellen, Comer explained, “The Committee is investigating President Biden’s knowledge of and role in these schemes to assess whether he has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people.”

Comer added the committee also “will examine drafting legislation to strengthen federal ethics laws regarding employees and their families.”
