The Department of Justice has decided not to investigate whether the civil rights of residents in New York’s government-run nursing homes were violated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s controversial admission policy related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a letter Friday, the DOJ’s Office of Legislative Affairs told US Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), ranking member of that House Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, that New York was off the hook in connection with potential violations of the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act.

The article goes on to state the following:

In August, the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division requested information from New York in connection with a March 25, 2020, order from the state Department of Health that required nursing homes to admit “medically stable” COVID-19 patients discharged from hospitals.


The report notes that nursing home deaths in Pennsylvania, Michigan and New Jersey were also included in the probe.

On Friday, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Joe Gaeta announced, “We have reviewed the information provided by these states along with additional information available to the Department. Based on that review, we have decided not to open a CRIPA investigation of any public nursing facility within New York, Pennsylvania, or Michigan at this time.”

The New York Post pointed out that NY Gov. Cuomo “is still facing a potentially more serious probe by the FBI and the Brooklyn US Attorney’s Office that was sparked by The Post’s revelation that a top aide privately admitted that administration covered up the total number of nursing home residents killed by the coronavirus.”

Scalise responded in a Twitter post, “BREAKING—Biden’s DOJ just said they’re refusing to investigate the massive nursing home COVID death scandals in New York, Michigan, & Pennsylvania. Absolutely shameful. They’re complicit in these Democrat governors’ cover ups. Families who lost loved ones deserve better.”

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) tweeted, “DEMOCRAT CORRUPTION ALERT. President Biden is now implicating himself and the U.S. Dept. of Justice in Governor Cuomo’s illegal corrupt criminal coverup of the thousands of nursing home deaths of vulnerable seniors in New York State.”

“A terrible day for thousands of families. In a letter to @SteveScalise, @TheJusticeDept wrote that they were dropping the nursing home investigations in all states including New York. There will be no justice for our loved ones, and it feels like we’ve lost them all over again,” wrote Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean, who lost both her parents-in-law to coronavirus while they lived in New York nursing homes.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), who is running to unseat Cuomo, blasted the move, tweeting, “The facts, victims & public interest warrant so much better than today’s decision by Biden’s DOJ not to investigate Andrew Cuomo’s deadly nursing home order & cover up. He’s making out like a bandit here: $5.1M, an Emmy, & get out of jail free card. Disgusting double standard!”

Amy Kremer, co-founder of Women For Trump, tweeted, “The Biden Justice Dept is refusing to investigate nursing home deaths that happened during Covid. But they will weaponize an entire arm of the federal Govt to prosecute people who trespassed on J6.”

Former NV GOP Chairwoman Amy Tarkanian noted that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is off the hook as well.

“I guess that wholehearted Biden endorsement paid off for Whitmer!” she quipped.

  1. The DOJ is Democratic based and in bed with Biden! Make no mistake that he will give him a bye with the gripping abuse of women since it takes one to know one!!! This is the most toxic administration in American History! Wake up America 🇺🇸

    • You are so right, the worst ever. These families deserve better, their loved ones civic rights were shredded and they died because of these liberal governors. Corruption beyond belief.

  2. I am appalled. This administration is the most “on our face” corrupt organization on the planet.

  3. If you had a loved one that died of covid in these nursing homes you need to stand up and demand justice!!!All democrat murders,crooks and thieves can not be charged with anything only republicans.Thats were Joe stands we can not put up with this Americans.

  4. This is truly disgusting!!
    Cuomo and whoever knew and helped him have blood on their hands!
    My heart goes out to the victims and their families.

  5. Unbelievable! There will be no justice for the people! These cowards are covering up all the wrongful deaths that occurred because of & others orders to put covid infected people in those nursing homes!

  6. This is unacceptable! These people are ruthless and wanting the seniors to die! Well since almost all of them are seniors and super spreaders due to their own stupidity so maybe they’ll go 1st! Satin is ready to welcome them all.

  7. Probably dropped because Democrats don’t want any bad press ahead of the ‘22 elections (although I’m sure mainstream media and Big Tech would have helped them avoid that 🙄). Can you imagine if there were Republican Governors in these states? Does anyone think for one second Biden’s Department of Injustice would be dropping it?

  8. DOJ has become a political arm of the Democrats. Justice has now died as they cover up 100,000 seniors who died in nursing home due to Democrat Governors bad decisions. The mini-me Communists sweep this atrocity under the rug, but they will reap what they sowed.

  9. DOJ is not doing its job. Dropping this case against Cuomo is a definite miscarriage of Justice. Merick Garland do your job.
