The head of the Covid Pandemic Committee, Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), has subpoenaed former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to appear for a deposition on May 24.

According to Wenstrup, Cuomo has “repeatedly and unjustifiably delayed” the committee’s investigation into Cuomo’s nursing home policies by not responding to requests for weeks, ignoring staff’s attempts to negotiate interview dates and times, and providing unreasonable availability — nine months after the interview was originally requested.

On March 25, 2020, Cuomo issued a mandate that forced New York nursing homes and long-term care facilities to admit or re-admit potentially contagious and untested Covid-19 patients. According to investigators, this order recklessly exposed New York’s most vulnerable population to Covid-19 with deadly consequences.

During the Cuomo Administration, it was reported that more than 15,000 people died in New York nursing homes and long-term care facilities. Evidence also suggests that Cuomo allegedly engaged in a coverup to hide the true New York nursing home mortality rate from the public and shift political blame away from his administration.
