(Natural News) One of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aides has come forward with claims that her boss hid key information from federal investigators about Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) nursing home deaths.
Back in August, the Department of Justice (DoJ) announced that it had requested information from New York about pandemic-related orders that are believed to have resulted in thousands of senior deaths at elderly care facilities.
Cuomo tossed otherwise healthy seniors in with positive “cases” of the Chinese virus, which may have caused it to spread like wildfire. As a result, thousands of old folks ended up dying, all thanks to Cuomo’s disastrous decision to house them all together.
According to Cuomo, the only explanation for the investigation is that it is politically motivated due to him being a Democrat. Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa, however, says Cuomo did, in fact, hide key data from the feds because he knew it would incriminate him.
The New York Post was the first to report on DeRosa’s claims, in which she admitted that the Cuomo regime is fearful that the data could “be used against us” by the DoJ.
According to DeRosa, after President Donald Trump asked “the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us,” the Cuomo regime “froze,” not knowing what to do to cover for itself.
“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 said.
Lying Cuomo now claims there was “never a directive” ordering Chinese virus patients into nursing homes
The Cuomo scandal first started to unravel a few weeks back when The New York Times reported that New York Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat, accused Cuomo and his regime, including officials at the state’s health department, of undercounting Chinese virus-related deaths by as much as 50 percent.
The original figure given by state officials was about 8,677 deaths. However, James’ report suggests that the true number is closer to around 13,000 elderly people who died as a result of Cuomo exposing them to positive cases.
WWNY News gave an even higher number of well over 15,000 seniors who died in nursing homes thanks to the infamous Cuomo executive order that forced nursing homes to take on patients who had tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).
Cuomo’s executive order specifically forbade nursing homes from requiring that incoming patients “be tested for Covid-19 prior to admission or readmission,” almost as if Cuomo wanted tens of thousands of old people to die.
For more than six weeks, Cuomo refused to reverse the directive, even as he was being told about rising deaths at state nursing homes. Now, Cuomo is claiming that he never even issued the directive at all, even though it is documented fact.
“There was never a directive that said: ‘We will send Covid positive people back to nursing homes,'” Cuomo stated during a recent MSNBC interview.
As you can see for yourself in Cuomo’s directive below, CNN pundit Chris Cuomo’s brother did, in fact, order that Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) patients be admitted to nursing homes, as well as others who were forbidden from being tested upon admission or re-admission:

As this was all taking place, Cuomo further stonewalled the reporting of actual data related to nursing home deaths associated with the Chinese virus. Some individual nursing homes, recognizing the scandal, chose of their own accord to report the numbers that Cuomo refused to report.
