Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Saturday will be interviewed by investigators who are probing allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct leveled against him by multiple women, sources tell Spectrum News.
The interview, to be conducted in Albany, and first reported by The New York Times, comes after officials in the administration have also been questioned by investigators Joon Kim and Anne Clark in recent weeks.
Rich Azzopardi, a spokesman for the governor, on Thursday afternoon accused investigators of leaking information surrounding the probe.
“We have said repeatedly that the Governor doesn’t want to comment on this review until he has cooperated, but the continued leaks are more evidence of the transparent political motivation of the Attorney General’s review," he wrote in a statement.
Cuomo's sitting for the interview is an indication the investigation into the allegations is close to reaching a final stage. Democratic and Republican state lawmakers have called on Cuomo to resign in the wake of the allegations.
Cuomo has been accused of making inappropriate comments to women who have worked in his office. He has said he apologizes to anyone who may have felt uncomfortable.
Cuomo has also been accused of sexual assault; he's denied the allegation. Cuomo in recent weeks has insisted he is eager to tell his side of the story.
