The Albany County Sheriff’s Office says it is in the “very infant stages” of investigating a criminal complaint against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Authorities addressed the complaint for the first time Saturday, following news of the complaint being made public Friday.Source
During a Saturday news conference, Apple said if charges were to be brought in the case, he believes they would amount to a misdemeanor, or possibly a couple of misdemeanors.
Apple acknowledged the high-profile nature of the case but insisted that Cuomo’s position as a public figure would not affect the course of the criminal investigation.
“This is obviously a very high profile investigation. There is a lot of information out there. We have a lot of fact-finding to do. We have a lot of interviews to do,” Apple said. “I’m not going to rush it because of who he is — and I’m not going to delay it because of who he is.”Sheriff Craig Apple
