    US Attorney to Cuomo: Witness tampering and obstruction are still illegal, you know

    Looks like Andrew Cuomo is working on a felony conviction. I wonder how long before the US attorney working this case get fired by Holder.

    The gloves have come off in New York, where Andrew Cuomo’s easy cruise to re-election as governor of New York has hit a major detour. Last week, the New York Times exposed Cuomo’s attempts to interfere with an anti-corruption commission he had established in August 2013, and then abruptly shut down in March. US Attorney Preet Bharara had cooperated with the Moreland Commission rather than press new investigations out of his own office, but got suspicious about Cuomo’s actions and took over the panel’s files. This led to the discovery that Cuomo’s office had demanded the retraction of subpoenas and the end to probes of people in Cuomo’s administration.

    After the NYT exposé, several figures in Cuomo’s circle have publicly come out to criticize the Bharara probe, and yesterday the US Attorney’s office issued its response — a warning that Cuomo and his aides had better refrain from tampering with witnesses and obstruction of justice.

    Since he probably wants to run fot statewide office in the future as a democrat, I doubt he will do anything to Cuomo before the election.

    Cuomo's been so corrupt for so long.

    He's in large part responsible for bankrupting the GSEs.

    If every Democrat were to stand trial for their lawlessness, most of Congress would be wearing Orange jump suites by now.
