(RepublicanInformer.com)- Things just keep getting worse for the Cuomo brothers. After it was announced that left-wing “news” outlet CNN has officially fired anchor Chris Cuomo for using his connections to help his controversial brother, former Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo, handle accusations of sexual misconduct, it looks as though the matter has now reached the Department of Justice.
The New York Post reports that at least some claims of sexual harassment against the former New York governor are being investigated by the department. It was discovered that the credible accusations have reached federal investigators through a Freedom of Information Act request filed by the newspaper.
The Post, which has broken multiple major stories like this in recent years – including the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story – found a legal services contract that was signed in October and divulged by the Office of State Comptroller. Who signed the legal services contract or who is providing those services, however, has not been confirmed.
“DOJ has also undertaken an inquiry related to sexual harassment claims made against the then Governor,” the contract says.
Multiple media outlets have contacted the Department of Justice about the story, but so far there has been no response to requests for comment or further information.
Rich Azzopardi, a spokesperson for Cuomo, confirmed the story by saying that the former governor is aware of the ongoing inquiry.
The most recent investigation concluded in a report from New York’s Attorney General Letitia James, suggesting that the allegations were credible.
“Our understanding is that the (DOJ’s) Civil Division opened an inquiry in August based upon the AG’s politically motivated sham report and we have heard nothing since,” explained.
