House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler said in a statement that Cuomo has “lost the confidence of the people of New York. Governor Cuomo must resign.”
In separate statements Friday, fellow Democratic Reps. Nydia Velazquez, Grace Meng, Yvette Clarke, Adriano Espaillat also joined the calls for Cuomo to step down as governor.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and freshman Rep. Jamaal Bowman said in a statement they agreed with others who have called on Cuomo to resign.
“As members of the New York delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives, we believe these women, we believe the reporting, we believe the Attorney General, and we believe the fifty-five members of the New York State legislature, including the State Senate Majority Leader, who have concluded that Governor Cuomo can no longer effectively lead in the face of so many challenges,” Ocasio-Cortez and Bowman said.
