“No begin-ended facts have been discovered here,” Rita Glavin, one of the attorneys representing Cuomo, said on a Zoom call Friday afternoon with the media. “This investigation was conducted in a way that supports a predetermined narrative.”

Then, in a sudden malfunction echoing Cuomo’s problems, Glavin’s call appeared to be cut off, leading her to wonder, “Am I frozen?” Pre-cut the feed for several minutes.

Once order was restored, Glavin explained that “Ethernet had failed” and reiterated that she believed “investigators acted as prosecutors, judges and jury.”

Glavin said her team was told when the report would be released and not given an opportunity to discuss its findings prior to the release.

Glavin then addressed the accused, known as “Executive Assistant 1” and tried to make holes in her story, explaining that Cuomo denied the alleged incident occurred.

The lawyer then put a timeline on the screen of the day the defendant said Cuomo sexually assaulted her and said it contradicted the allegation against the governor.


Glavin added that the statements “undermining” Cuomo’s first accuser Lindsey Boylan were ignored by the attorney general’s office and tried to prove there were loopholes in Boylan’s story.

Then Cuomo’s lawyers responded to questions from the media and said the governor would deal with recent allegations of sexual misconduct against a female soldier assigned to his security duties.

“He’s 63 years old, and he’s spent 40 years in public life. To be suddenly accused of sexually assaulting an executive assistant he doesn’t really know, doesn’t get through,” Glavin concluded.

During the call, two of Cuomo’s accusers released a statement defending the integrity of the attorney general’s investigation.

“The governor’s efforts to ‘respond’ to the AG’s comprehensive and rigorous report that provides extensive evidence of his illegal behavior once again misses the mark,” they said.

“On behalf of Alyssa McGrath and Virginia Limiatis, we confirm once again that AG investigators treated them fairly while closely examining evidence and facts, including by asking succeed-up questions and speaking to witnesses,” attorney Marianne Wang wrote.. “The AG’s report is comprehensive and detailed and provides the alike evidence that the governor violated state and federal law.”

Boylan simply tweeted: “We won’t be scared.”

The New York Attorney General’s Office issued a statement in response to comments made by Cuomo’s attorneys accusing the governor of attacking the credibility of his accusers.

“After several women made sexual accusations that Governor Cuomo had harassed them, the Governor himself requested that Attorney General James oversee an self-reliant investigation,” the statement said. “The selected self-reliant investigators are professionals who are widely respected and recognized for their legal and investigative capabilities. Attacking this investigation and attempting to undermine and politicize this process detracts from the courage of these women.”

The statement continued. “There will be a renewed production of interview transcripts available to the State Assembly, and they will be revised as needed. There are 11 women whose accounts have been confirmed by a body of evidence. Any suggestion that attempts to undermine the credibility of these women or this investigation is unfortunate.”

Earlier this week, New York Attorney General Letitia James released a 165-page report accusing the governor of sexual harassment in connection with 11 women who accused him of wrongdoing.

“This is a unhappy day for New York because self-reliant investigators have concluded that Governor Cuomo sexually harassed several women, thereby breaking the law,” New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement.

The report sparked calls for Cuomo to resign, including from President Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In addition, lawmakers in New York Preparation To initiate impeachment proceedings against the governor.

Cuomo maintained that he was innocent of any wrongdoing.

“Firstly, I want you to know directly from me that I have not inappropriately touched or sexually advanced anyone,” Cuomo said in a video released following the report was published. “I am 63 years old. I have lived my entire adult life in fore of public view. This is not just me and this is not what I used to be.”
