New Report: $25k Campaign contribution to Gov Cuomo stopped an ongoing criminal investigation

Governor Cuomo

There now needs to be some investigation into campaign contributions to Governor Andrew Cuomo and to others that may have influenced the Weinstein investigation.

Therefore, I have directed the Attorney General to begin a review of the 2015 case in a way that does not interfere with the current investigation and, at the conclusion of the Manhattan District Attorney’s current investigation, to review the entire matter and report to me on its findings.

But on Tuesday, BuzzFeed reported that Cuomo “ordered the New York Attorney General’s Office to suspend its investigation into whether Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. mishandled 2015 allegations of…..
