MSNBC host Joe Scarborough slammed the New York Governor Thursday saying “there are no Democratic defenders, it seems, of Andrew Cuomo.” The remarks come on the heels of a DOJ inspector general report providing evidence of Cuomo’s behavior and numerous accusations of sexual harassment. New York Attorney General Letitia James confirmed earlier this week that he made inappropriate comments to several state employees. There were also confirmed instances of him engaging in nonconsensual touching.
“I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a politician so completely isolated from members even of his own party,” Scarborough said of Cuomo. “We get so used to Republicans defending Donald Trump no matter what he did, whether he was using his position to try to bribe a foreign leader with defense money to dig up dirt on his political opponent or pressure his attorney general to arrest his political opponent two weeks before a campaign, I mean, even after [January 6th], you have Republicans that just — they’re still defending Donald Trump. Here, there are no Democratic defenders, it seems, of Andrew Cuomo.”
After James released her report, President Biden called for Cuomo’s resignation. “The President of the United States, the Speaker of the House, the Senate majority leader, his two Senate — his two senators from the state of New York, the Assembly Leader — Andrew Cuomo is surrounded,” Scarborough said. “I don’t know how this is even remotely survivable for him.”
Later, the New York governor responded to the report by saying this is the way he’s always treated everyone.

‘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.”
