“Governor Cuomo’s reputation was destroyed on August 3rd at one of the most prejudicial and unprecedented press conferences I have ever seen in my career. And what happened there was not meant to be independent, it was meant to be an ambush. Tish James cannot make these allegations and disavow having to defend them in a forum and then refuse to give the evidence. It's not right. It’s not fair. And as a New Yorker I’m outraged by it.”
- Rita Glavin
Today, Rita Glavin, attorney for Governor Andrew Cuomo made a formal submission to the Attorney General outlining countless errors, inconsistencies, glaring omissions and distortions riddled throughout her August 3rd report — including new information about the AG's motivations, conflicts of interest, and — by her own admission — James' personal violation of the terms of the investigative referral.
The Attorney General's personal interference and violation of the referral made to her office, combined with the resulting inexplicably flawed and biased report raise serious ethical questions amounting to prosecutorial misconduct.

Eight weeks ago Attorney General Tish James issued a one-sided report presented to exact maximum political damage, generate scathing headlines and purposely mislead the public. Tellingly, since then, the AG has refused to answer any specific questions regarding the report while herself mulling a run for Governor.
Today's presentation and submission makes clear that the Attorney General's motivations and subsequent actions were political. She must now appoint a truly independent body to review her report, her violation of the referral order and today's formal submission. New Yorkers deserve the truth.
