ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — In a press convention Wednesday, Rita Glavin, former Governor Andrew Cuomo’s legal professional, demanded that the legal professional common amend, right, and complement the report that discovered Cuomo sexually harassed 11 girls. Glavin claims Letitia James was personally concerned within the investigation.
“The attorney general, because of her plans to explore a run for governor, plans that over the last several weeks, she’s made very very clear at different events— she had a motive to draw every possible inference against the governor,” stated Glavin.
Glavin is now calling on AG James to recuse herself and for her workplace to stop and desist issues involving Cuomo. She additionally requested the proof used to conduct the August report be handed over, which she says she has requested and has not gotten.
“Miss Glavin claims her client wasn’t given access to the majority of the investigatory materials underling the report. For those who don’t know, the complainants don’t have access and never had access to those materials,” said Jessica Westerman.
Westerman, who represents Charlotte Bennett — one of Cuomo’s accusers — stated she sees Glavin’s feedback as a final resort in his protection.
“It’s hard to argue with the facts in the attorney general’s report,” stated Westerman. “And so she’s resorted to attacking the legal professional common.
A spokesperson for James responding by saying, “another day, another baseless attack by the former Governor who resigned so he didn’t have to participate in an impeachment hearing.”
When requested how many individuals Cuomo harassed, Glavin responded by saying, “None. Next question.”
“I think that today’s press conference was another in a long line of attempts made by Miss Glavin to discredit the report that showed definitively that her client, in fact, sexually harassed a number of former staffers, including my client, Charlotte Bennett,” Westerman informed NEWS10’s Jamie DeLine.
The Assembly Judiciary Committee can be engaged on a report relating to the investigation. Earlier this month, Chairman Charles Lavine stated that it’s anticipated to be launched “very soon.”
