The New York attorney general appointed a former federal attorney and a labor attorney on Monday to investigate allegations that Cuomo sexually molested several women.
Also on Monday, a spokesman for the New York Congregation minority leader William Barclay, a Republican from Syracuse, told the media that a resolution to initiate impeachment proceedings against Cuomo would be tabled by the end of the day.
Republicans have a relatively small minority of seats in the assembly and cannot force Democrats to indict Democrat Cuomo.
Cuomo has repeatedly stated that he will not resign on allegations that he molested three former aides. The Senate majority leader, a democratic compatriot, called for his resignation on Sunday.
New York attorney general Letitia James said the harassment allegations of Joon Kim, who served as acting U.S. attorney for the southern borough of New York from March 2017 through the following January, and Anne Clark, who has represented numerous plaintiffs, are under investigation Sexual Harassment Lawsuits.
“We are committed to an independent and thorough investigation into the facts,” said James.
Kim and Clark “are independent legal professionals with decades of experience conducting investigations and fighting to uphold the rule of law,” said James.
“There’s no question that they both have the knowledge and background to lead this investigation and give New Yorkers the answers they deserve.”
