House GOP Wants Cuomo Subpoena’d Over Nursing Home Scandal

 Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are urging Democratic chairwoman Rep. Carolyn Maloney to subpoena New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to testify before the panel on nursing home COVID-19 deaths in the state.

Fox News exclusively obtained a letter committee Ranking Member James Comer, R-Ky., and all Republicans on the panel sent to Maloney, D-N.Y., demanding that the committee “hear the truth, under oath, directly from Governor Cuomo.”

Last month, New York Attorney General Letitia James said nursing home COVID-19 deaths in the state were undercounted by as much as 50%. And things escalated after a report that a top aide to Cuomo told leading state Democratic lawmakers that the administration had withheld data on COVID-19 deaths at nursing homes to avoid federal scrutiny.
