Should Kathy Hochul Be Subpoenaed In Moreland Investigation Too

From the Capital Playbook email this morning:

--GREGG BIRNBAUM, on NY1: “Is the U.S. Attorney going to subpoena the lieutenant governor candidate to find out whether Governor Cuomo’s office gave her those taking points? Because she was right on message with that and if that could be witness tampering.”

When you see stuff like this, that's when you know the shit's gotten real for Cuomo.

This getting people on message and making sure everybody is doing exactly what he wants them to do is Cuomo's signature style.

It's fine to pull that stuff in political matters, but when federal prosecutors are investigating matters, there's a thin line between political messaging and engineering behind the scenes and witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

John Dean said that members of Nixon's inner circle were focused on the political fallout from the Watergate break-in, that they really didn't focus on the illegality of the cover-up.

It's possible the same may be happening for Andrew Cuomo.

  1. Nice to see this happening on the 40th anniversary of Nixon's resignation.
