Andrew Cuomo appears to play down Joe Biden’s comments about stepping down as NY governor


New York Governor Andrew Cuomo appeared to play down President Joe Biden’s comments about the allegations against him and if he should step down while on a phone call with reporters on Wednesday.

“If you committed a crime you can be prosecuted. That’s true,” Mr Cuomo said when asked about the recent statements from the president. “But what President Biden said was, there should be a review … I agree with him on that. The people of New York agree with him on that.”

But that wasn’t exactly what Mr Biden said when speaking to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday evening.

Mr Stephanopoulos asked the president if the governor should step down if the investigation confirmed the allegations. “Yes,” Mr Biden said.

“I think he’ll probably end up being prosecuted, too,” Mr Biden added.

But when asked about the comments on Wednesday, Mr Cuomo said the president only called for a “review” into the allegations against him and did not call for him to be prosecuted if the investigation confirmed what the women said happened.
