On Thursday evening, the New York nursing home scandal took another shocking turn after a Cuomo aide admitting to a massive coverup in order to avoid attention from the feds.
According to the NY Post, a top Cuomo aide privately apologized to Democratic lawmakers for withholding the state’s nursing-home COVID-19 death toll.
The most shocking part of the entire story? They blame TRUMP for the coverup.

The admission came from Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa during a private video conference call with state Democratic leaders.
DeRosa told lawmakers that the Cuomo administration snubbed a request for the death toll in August because she accuses Trump of turning the nursing home scandal into a “giant political football.”
Here’s more from the NY Post:
“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa said. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”
In addition to attacking Cuomo’s fellow Democratic governors, DeRosa said, Trump “directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us.”
“And basically, we froze,” she told the lawmakers on the call.
“Because then 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 added: “That played a very large role into this.”
Immediately after the story broke, #Cuomocide began trending on Twitter.

Cuomo didn't use the USNS Comfort or Javits Center because he didn't want Trump to get credit
He sent 9,000 infected patients into the nursing homes instead

Ron DeSantis has gotten more negative press for keeping businesses open than Andrew Cuomo has for intentionally covering up COVID deaths in nursing homes.— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) February 12, 2021
I wonder why?
Infuriating.— Techno Fog (@Techno_Fog) February 12, 2021
Cuomo hid COVID death data and ran out the clock on the investigation by the Trump DOJ.
And it looks like the Biden DOJ rewarded him by dropping the civil rights investigation entirely.
