Matthew Whitaker to Newsmax: Impeachment, Gov. Cuomo’s Biggest Threat

Former Acting United States Attorney General Matthew Whitaker told Newsmax that a prosecutor would have to charge New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo within “the two year window” for sexual assault crimes in a criminal case, but stated that impeachment would be Cuomo’s biggest threat.

Appearing on “Stinchfield,” Whitaker said, “I think the biggest threat to governor Cuomo’s political career is this impeachment.” Because “the entire New York Congressional Delegation has left him.”

Whitaker adds that Democrats in New York’s Assembly are planning on impeaching Cuomo. The Assembly, which consists of 150 members, needs 76 votes to impeach Cuomo, according to the Daily Press, and send those articles of impeachment to the Senate.
