The sheer idiocy is just stupifying.
But a long thread of Tweets started with just such a suggestion:
It’s occurred to me that Republicans want Cuomo out so they can replace him with a Gov who could pardon Trump for state crimes.

Chip Franklin is a radio talk show host in San Francisco, and he has 200,000 followers on Twitter. He’s got a front-row seat to the recall effort being waged against Dem. Governor Gavin Newsom in California.
So this Tweet got some attention, and the responses to it are the ultimate in “rabbit hole” experiences. They don’t require much commentary, so I’m sparse with my remarks down below. But you might want to guard your computer screen.
The timing is very suspicious. Don’t remember this much coverage for republicans and there are many.

EXACTLY CORRECT!! It’s no coincidence these allegations are coming at this time. Investigators need to look into who has been in contact with these women over the past few months. I have a very difficult time swallowing allegations like this when they smell so damned political.

Absolutely, that’s what repubs want. Andrew Cuomo has requested NY AG Letitia James to oversee the investigation. I’m not making any decision, guilty or innocent, until the investigation has concluded & we see the results.

She’s speaking about the same Attorney General who revealed to the world that Cuomo’s Office had been lying to the Legislature and the public about the fact that Cuomo’s nursing home policy killed 15,000 elderly who did NOT have COVID until Cuomo ordered that COVID positive nursing home residents be forced back into their facilities.
Cuomo wanted anyone BUT Letitia James to conduct an “independent” investigation — he wanted the law partner of his former key aide to
whitewash investigate the allegations.
Yes, indeed The @GOP is all over this mess. Trump can be accused multiple times of rape, and not give up his DNA, Cuomo gets accused and of just talking and touching and all hell breaks loose. Polygraph for all.

Of course. This is a hit by Donald, Rudy, Roger and Rupert

Trump, Giuliani, Stone, and Murdoch. Seriously. This person should charge them rent for living in her head.

CNN and MSNBC too!!!!
DUH?????? It was the VERY VERY first thought in my head. And the media is helping. TONS of corruption stories as well as OTHER harassment allegations against republican politicians are getting ZERO coverage while this story is getting round the clock coverage on all networks.

Yup, funny how all this broke out after Trump’s taxes are handed over to SDNY. I say wait and allow for a complete investigation, remember what happened to Al Franken.
