Disgraced former New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has agreed to appear before a panel of House lawmakers and discuss his administration’s controversial handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York nursing homes, the chairman of the committee said Friday.
“Governor Cuomo will be appearing before our select Subcommittee on the Pandemic on June 11,” Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) told CNN host Jake Tapper.
“This will be a transcribed interview at 10 a.m.,” Wenstrup added, indicating that his testimony will take place behind closed doors.

Complies with subpoena from House Select Subcommittee on coronavirus pandemic.
Former Governor Andrew Cuomo and two of his former administration's top aides will be testifying before a Congressional panel in June to discuss their controversial 2020 decision regarding the COVID pandemic and nursing homes.
Cuomo's spokesman Rich Azzopardi confirms the story as reported originally by CNN that the former Governor will comply with a subpoena from the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic.
CNN reports the Governor's former Secretary Melissa DeRosa and State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker will also take part in the transcribed interview which is focusing on the March 2020 advisory to stop nursing homes from refusing to accept patients just due to a COVID diagnosis.
