Nancy Pelosi Floats Stunning Admission — Claims Allegations Made Against Cuomo Are ‘Credible’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that allegations against Cuomo are “credible,” according to The Daily Wire.

“The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” Pelosi said.

“The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved.”

Two Women have accused Governor Cuomo of sexual harassment.

Charlotte Bennet said Cuomo asked inappropriate questions about her sex life.

Cuomo said he “never made advances toward Ms. Bennett, nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate.”

Lindsay Boylan accused Cuomo of kissing her and suggesting that they play strip poker in an airplane.

A spokesperson for Cuomo has referred to Boylan’s “claims of inappropriate behavior” as “quite simply false.”

According to The Daily Wire, Governor Cuomo gave a statement that reads:

Questions have been raised about some of my past interactions with people in the office.

I never intended to offend anyone or cause any harm. I spend most of my life at work and colleagues are often also personal friends.

At work sometimes I think I am being playful and make jokes that I think are funny. I do, on occasion, tease people in what I think is a good natured way. I do it in public and in private. You have seen me do it at briefings hundreds of times. I have teased people about their personal lives, their relationships, about getting married or not getting married. I mean no offense and only attempt to add some levity and banter to what is a very serious business.

I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended. I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that.

To be clear I never inappropriately touched anybody and I never propositioned anybody and I never intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but these are allegations that New Yorkers deserve answers to.

That’s why I have asked for an outside, independent review that looks at these allegations.

Separately, my office has heard anecdotally that some people have reached out to Ms. Bennett to express displeasure about her coming forward. My message to anyone doing that is you have misjudged what matters to me and my administration and you should stop now – period.
