On Monday’s “MSNBC Live,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said that New York had more nursing home deaths than any other state “Because we had more people die. Because the federal government missed the boat and never told us that this virus was coming from Europe and not from China.”

Host Stephanie Ruhle asked, “House Republicans are looking into New York’s March 25 order that directed nursing homes to take in infected patients. This thing is not going away, sir. 6,300 people died in New York nursing homes. That is the most in this country. The more time has passed, the more your office has been able to look into this. Do you take responsibility for that order and the role it may have played in those deaths?”

Cuomo responded, “Yeah, the Republicans, Stephanie, are playing politics. They don’t want to talk about how they are now handling this COVID virus –.”

Ruhle then cut in to state that lives are being discussed.

Cuomo responded, “Yes, I understand that, and there are facts also, Stephanie. … Yes, we had more people die in nursing homes than anywhere else. Because we had more people die. Because the federal government missed the boat and never told us that this virus was coming from Europe and not from China. And January, February, March, before they did the European travel ban, 3 million people came from Europe and brought the virus to New York, and the federal government didn’t know and the federal government and the CDC and all of them failed to handle this pandemic and warn this nation. So, New York had more cases, more deaths, and more deaths in nursing home[s]. Because that’s who the virus affects. It affects senior citizens. We know that. You look at any state, and they had a tremendous number of deaths in nursing homes. It’s all a political charade. And it’s an ugly one, frankly, to talk about a number of deaths and suggest there was politics at it. The number of deaths are still going up, Stephanie. Look at Florida. Look at Texas. Look at Arizona. Let them look in the mirror and say, you know what? We were wrong. We’re killing people unnecessarily, by this irresponsible, reckless reopening, and it’s not working for the economy either. Those are the facts, Stephanie.”

During a press conference on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that President Trump engaged in an “abuse of power” “by engaging in political interference in the sentencing of his associate, Roger Stone” and that the matter should be investigated.

Pelosi said, “We also saw the president this week demonstrate, once again, that he does have — has no respect for the rule of law. His assault on the rule of law by engaging in political interference in the sentencing of his associate, Roger Stone…this is an abuse of power that the president is again trying to manipulate federal law enforcement to serve his political interests.”

Pelosi further stated that Attorney General William Barr “has deeply damaged the rule of law by withdrawing the DOJ’s sentencing recommendation, the act of interference in Trump’s retribution against the lead attorney in the Stone case. … This all must be investigated.”

During a press conference on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) denounced calls to publicize the identity of the whistleblower and stated that “no one knows who he is, or if you do, you should let me know.”

Schumer said, “The calls to make public the whistleblower’s identity are despicable. The whole purpose of the whistleblower law was to protect people when they had the courage to come forward. This whistleblower is obviously coming forward because he was so concerned about where President Trump was leading America. And every single Republican senator, including the Republican leader, ought to denounce this.”

He added, “Whistleblowers should be protected, period. Period. And no one knows who he is, or if you do, you should let me know.”
