(WBNG) — While there are currently three ongoing investigations into allegations of sexual harassment against Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), the formal process of impeachment has not started.
The New York Attorney General Letitia James is currently spearheading one investigation, while the state assembly’s judiciary committee has begun another; the third investigation was started by the governor’s office.
Legal experts however say the investigation from the governor’s office will have no power over any of the other investigations, but is more similar to how a defendant in a criminal case would investigate claims.
Peter Pullano is a managing partner at Upstate law firm Tully Rinckey. He told 12 News despite being the governor and holding a position of power, Cuomo has the same rights as ordinary citizens.
