A resolution to impeach New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is set to be introduced soon, Assembly Republican Leader Will Barclay said at a news conference Monday.

“We’re going to introduce this resolution because we believe the time has come,” Barclay said. “In order to lead this great state as governor, you need to have credibility and trust … and unfortunately we feel the governor has lost that and now has an inability to lead.”

The Assembly Republican Conference made the announcement in response to sexual assault allegations against Cuomo as well as controversy surrounding his handling of the coronavirus pandemic in nursing homes.
