SHOCKING COVERUP: Cuomo Aide Admits They Hid Nursing Home Data To Avoid Feds

On Thursday evening, the New York nursing home scandal took another shocking turn after a Cuomo aide admitting to a massive coverup in order to avoid attention from the feds.

According to the NY Post, a top Cuomo aide privately apologized to Democratic lawmakers for withholding the state’s nursing-home COVID-19 death toll.

The most shocking part of the entire story? They blame TRUMP for the coverup.

The admission came from Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa during a private video conference call with state Democratic leaders.

DeRosa told lawmakers that the Cuomo administration snubbed a request for the death toll in August because she accuses Trump of turning the nursing home scandal into a “giant political football.”

“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa said. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”

In addition to attacking Cuomo’s fellow Democratic governors, DeRosa said, Trump “directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us.”

“And basically, we froze,” she told the lawmakers on the call.

“Because then we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation.”

DeRosa added: “That played a very large role into this.”
