Does getting rid of Cuomo affect NY's ** investigation in any way?

The third “victim” and the timing of all of this as NY bears down on ** is once again super lucky for the investigated.

If Cuomo’s gone does that affect any required cooperation between NY city and state?

Is this a contrived effort to attack the state that wields prosecutorial power?

3. No. The LG is a Democrat, as is the AG (who is also investigating Cuomo).

Anyhow, the Manhattan DA is handling the investigation, and the NYAG, who is after Trump wrt his taxes, is not going to interfere with that. SDNY is federal, so there wouldn't be any involvement in any investigation going on there.

6. If the current Lt. Governor becomes Governor,

how will the Lt. Governor be replaced? What's the procedure?

7. If you think any of it is coincidental, I have some nice bridges for sale...

There is no doubt that this is coming out now as deflection and distraction from other things.

The entire sorry ass Republican philosophy of the last 45 years fits neatly on a bumper sticker:
More for me, Less for thee...now die faster.


Their rhetoric is beyond tired. Their "culture wars" are trite and proven fallacious.
Their economic "plans" are one line - tax cuts. Their empathy is wanting and their greed is omnipresent.

This party of fools, thieves and psychopaths has been singing the same songs and running the same play for decades now...

In power? Cut Taxes, spent wildly, steal money.
Out of power? Cry about censorship and culture wars, filibuster and obfuscate.

Lather.
Rinse.
Repeat.

8. Think like a GOPer

It is likely that the Trump investigations will continue into next year. Cuomo is up for re-election next year. If Cuomo resigns, he's replaced with the Democratic lt. governor, who is also up for re-election. The lieutenant governor would be a weaker candidate (she only served one term in Congress previously, losing her re-election bid to Chris Collins) and so would be easier to defeat in a general election. Even if Cuomo doesn't resign, he's damaged anyway by the accusations and so a strong GOP candidate would have a better chance being elected governor.

The only way the GOP can quash the NYS investigations right now is to have a governor willing to do it, and the more Cuomo is damaged the better their chances are.

9. Exactly. They are playing the long game. Reacting to the immediate

short term issues hastily is playing right into their hands.

11. If the Cons run

The same loser that they ran four years ago, ANY Dem could easily beat him. Plain and simple.

18. Except Cuomo is not in charge of the Trump investigation

 

the New York Attorney General is. In New York Attorney General is an elected position, not an appointed one, that is independent of the Governor. So to quash the NYS investigations, they would have to go after the Attorney General, not the Governor.
