Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., blasted President Joe Biden’s Justice Department Friday after the DOJ announced it was dropping a civil rights probe into New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus in nursing homes.
“It is outrageous that the Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly ‘must admit’ orders issued by governors in New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan that resulted in the deaths of thousands of senior citizens,” the minority whip said in a statement Friday.
The article goes on to state the following:
The DOJ told Republican lawmakers Friday that it will not pursue an investigation into the Cuomo nursing home scandal but a separate investigation by federal prosecutors into the matter will continue.
“Where is the justice for nursing home victims and their grieving families? These deadly orders contradicted the CDC’s guidance, and needlessly endangered the most vulnerable among us to the deadly COVID-19 virus,” Scalise continued. “Even worse, Governor Cuomo in New York intentionally tried to cover up the true death toll resulting from his mandate. Grieving families deserve answers and accountability. It’s unconscionable that Biden’s Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly actions that went against CDC’s medical guidance taken in these states.”
Scalise referred to the decision as ‘Absolutely shameful’ on Twitter, adding that the DOJ is ‘complicit in these Democrat governors’ cover ups.’
🚨🚨 BREAKING—Biden’s DOJ just said they’re refusing to investigate the massive nursing home COVID death scandals in New York, Michigan, & Pennsylvania.
They’re complicit in these Democrat governors’ cover ups.
Families who lost loved ones deserve better.

NY congressman Lee Zeldin slammed the governor of his state, claiming the DOJ’s decision was a “gift to a corrupt governor who has already scored himself a $5.1M self-congratulatory book deal & ridiculous Emmy Award.”
The DOJ’s decision today to turn a blind eye to facts, victims & public interest regarding Cuomo’s deadly nursing home order & cover up is yet another gift to a corrupt governor who has already scored himself a $5.1M self-congratulatory book deal & ridiculous Emmy Award.👎
