In April 2020, Cuomo and Democratic legislative leaders agreed to amend a law that ruled out money bail and pretrial detention for most misdemeanor and nonviolent felony charges. Changes to the law will allow judges to set bail for more crimes, including misdemeanor bail jumping. Several criminal justice reform groups and state lawmakers raised concern at a Thursday, July 2, 2020, virtual news conference that the amended law, which goes into effect in July, will land more people behind bars amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called Wednesday for the impeachment of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) over his handling of the state’s coronavirus outbreak.

“The people we are lauding are actually making catastrophic decisions,” he said.

“I think Gov. Cuomo should be impeached … for the disastrous decision he made to send patients with coronavirus back to nursing homes. … Virtually half his people who died were in nursing homes,” Paul said on Fox News’s “Rundown” morning podcast.

  1. When Senator Rand Paul moves to New York, he is welcome to call for any New York official’s impeachment. New Yorkers are well aware of what Gov. Cuomo has done in this pandemic, including his mistakes.

    We would prefer that Sen. Paul focus on the mistakes of his fellow Kentucky senator, Mitch McConnell, and the mistakes of the US president, who is a member of Paul’s party.

  2. For murdering 6000+ senior citizens in nursing homes and thousands more for denying live saving hydroxychloroquine to the sick Cuomo should be charged with homicide.

  3. And for not allowing visitors in the hospitals so the hospitals can just kill whoever they want. So they can collect the $12k from the feds for every corona death.

  4. cuomo did not block people from getting hydroxychloroquine!! as to the rest of the criticsm: one thing can be said for sure and that is that NY has the highest death rate by far and that makes it very clear that Cuomo is not to be applauded for handling this well because any lifeform of reasonable intelligence can tell yo that ten s of thousands of people dead is not called doing a good job!! (or else everyone should just have covid parties and after a month everyone will be immune aand covid will be gone, hurray!! )

  5. Hydroxychloroquine saves you from malaria, and is important for helping people with autoimmune diseases to live normal lives. I took hydroxychloroquine last year before a trip to Africa.

    But it doesn’t help with COVID-19.

    Paul and McConnell aren’t close politically.

  6. “huju”
    you and what army?
    everyone is fed up with cuomo and deblasio for making these poitical “mistakes” they will do anything to keep NY closed to make trump look bad, they know a large percent of the economy in USA depends on new york, one of trumps main themes was that the economy was great under him.
    anyone that has the ability to impeach cuomo and deblasio should definitely do so, everyone is fed up with these liars.

  7. Dr. charliehall, Fake News and Marxist Democrat instructed you well to repeat that hydroxychloroquine “doesn’t help with COVID-19” like a trained parrot. Ask thousands of patients around the world that were saved by hydroxychloroquine. In case you get Wuhan-19 (i do not wish it on you) makes sure to tell your doctor not to be treated with hydroxychloroquine.
