Rep. Lee Zeldin announces run for New York governor: ‘Cuomo’s gotta go!’

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) announced Thursday he’s running for governor of New York in 2022 against current Governor Andrew Cuomo, saying it’s time for Cuomo to “immediately exit stage left.”

Zeldin, a longtime GOP congressman and friend of the Trump family, will be the first Republican to launch a campaign against three-term Gov. Cuomo in 2022.

“I’ll bring the kind of relentless, fighting spirit towards helping to save our state that Cuomo reserves for multi-million dollar self-congratulatory book deals, cover-ups, abuse & self-dealing,” Zeldin said Thursday.

Zeldin has represented New York’s 1st congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2015. Previously, he was an officer in the United States Army Reserve.

“We are going to win this race,” Zeldin said on Fox & Friends Thursday. “I’m all in, we’re all in. Losing is not an option and we have to turn things around.”

“Everyone has come to the conclusion, whether you’re a Republican, Democrat, anywhere in between, that this guy has been there too long and it’s time to go,” Zeldin said about the current NY governor.

“This is the first time in my entire life that we have had one-party Democratic rule in New York City, Albany and D.C. And they’re all doing their part to destroy their levels of government,” Zeldin said.

In a series of tweets announcing his candidacy, Zeldin slammed the one-party rule in New York.

“With 1-party Dem rule in NYC & Albany, the light that was a beacon of what America can be has gone dark. The NY once a magnet for the world’s best & brightest is now forcing its own to leave under the weight of crushing taxes, lost jobs, suffocating regulations, & rising crime.”

“At the helm of NY’s downfall is Andrew Cuomo, whose deadly nursing home order & cover-up is part of a long line of scandals, lies, & harassment,” Zeldin continued. “Cuomo has abused the power & trust granted to him & it’s time for him to immediately exit stage left.”

“I’m ready to go all in on this mission and bring New York back from the brink and return it to glory. For many, this feels like a last stand to save our state.”

Lawmakers across the board have called for Cuomo to resign after several women accused the governor of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. Cuomo has denied the accusations and is currently under investigation by the New York Attorney General’s Office.

Cuomo is also under investigation for his administration’s handling of data about Covid-19 nursing home deaths.

Zeldin’s announcement comes one day after Andrew Giuliani — son of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani — said he was considering a run for governor as a Republican.

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
