Statement from NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox on the Release of the Mueller Report

April 18, 2019


“President Trump has been totally vindicated and it is a good day for America. After two years, $25 million and hundreds of interviews and man hours on one of the most thorough investigations of any U.S. President, today’s release confirms what we knew all along–no collusion, no obstruction. It’s high time Democrats end their overzealous and partisan games and focus on the issues that matter to the people they are supposed to represent.
“Meanwhile, the investigation must now turn to the conduct of intelligence and other officials who abused their positions and the truth about the phony Steele dossier must be revealed to the public. As President Trump said, this should never happen again.”

DO NEW YORK CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS AGREE WITH COLLEAGUE THAT 9/11 WAS SIMPLY “SOME PEOPLE THAT DID SOMETHING?”


April 12th… It’s been three days since Rep. Omar made her offensive remarks and while AOC and other Dems are actually defending her outrageous comments and labeling anyone upset by them as racists, most of New York’s congressional Democrats have stayed silent or refused to outright condemn their colleague.
Rep. Max Rose represents a district that lost more than 300 men and women during the terrorist attacks on September 11th, yet he refuses to call out Omar by name and condemn her.
Where are the rest of NYC’s congressional delegation? SILENT
Jerry Nadler whose district covers Ground Zero? SILENT but has plenty of time for partisan games.
 
Sean Patrick Maloney…SILENT
Antonio Delgado…SILENT
Anthony Brindisi….SILENT
Our state leaders are no better….
Where is Governor Cuomo? SILENT
Kirsten Gillibrand? SILENT
Chuck Schumer? SILENT
Tish James? SILENT
This isn’t even the first time Omar has demonstrated sympathies for Islamic extremism. Back in 2016, Omar asked a judge for “compassion” when sentencing an ISIS recruit and her anti-Semitic tropes are well documented.
Just today a clip emerged of her mocking Americans for their anxiety about al-Qaeda and equating them and Hezbollah with U.S. armed forces.
Chairman Cox said, “It’s stunning that any member of Congress would whitewash the most horrific attack on our nation’s soil, but for New York Democrats to put party loyalty over condemning her words is despicable. September 11th forever changed New York, America and the families of the nearly 3,000 murdered souls. Part of ‘never forgetting’ means remembering what happened. Shame on them for their silence.”
Statement from NYGOP Chairman Cox on Albany Democrats’ Unconstitutional Political Games

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Cox on Albany Democrats’ Unconstitutional Political Games

“The Democratic legislature and Governor Cuomo are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome and playing politics at the expense of doing the people’s business. No matter how they dress it up for legal purposes, this unconstitutional bill of attainder is aimed at one individual for the political purpose of re-litigating the 2016 election. The bill would set a dangerous precedent for infringing on the privacy rights of all citizens.
“Albany Democrats are happy to do the dirty work of national Democrats, yet they willfully turned a blind eye to the rampant corruption committed by their fellow Democrat, Andrew Cuomo and his Administration. They have no credibility, and this bill, if enacted, will fail in the courts and Democrats will once again have egg on their faces for their purely partisan politics.”
NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION

NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION

President Trump Exonerated;

Congressional Democrats Need to Stop Political Games and Get to Work


New York–March 25th…After two years of the most exhaustive investigation of a President in U.S. history, President Trump and his campaign have been exonerated from the Democrats’ scurrilous charges of Russian collusion.

The statistics surrounding Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation are striking:

    • The investigation went on for 675 days.
    • The total reported cost of the Mueller investigation through September 2018 was over $25 million.
    • The cost per day was $50, 230.00  – the second most expensive in history.
    • There were 19 attorneys on Robert Mueller’s staff – 12 more than the Starr investigation.
    • There were approximately 40 FBI agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants and other staff that assisted with the investigation.
    • Approximately 500 individuals testified or interviewed with the Special Counsel’s team.
    • There were 2800 subpoenas issued, 500 executed search warrants and 230 orders for communication records.
    • In addition to the Special Counsel’s investigation, there were 3 separate Congressional investigations by the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senate Intelligence Committee, and the House Intelligence Committee – all of the committees found no evidence of collusion.

 

“President Trump told the American people from day one that he did not collude with the Russians and this report finally vindicates the President,” said NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox. “Democrats have refused to accept that their flawed presidential candidate lost the election fair and square, and have been desperate to undermine the legitimacy of President Trump at every turn. Their political witch hunt– led by Congressional Democrats–has done a disservice to Americans and it’s time to end. New York’s Democratic congressional delegation needs to get to work and start delivering for the people they represent.”

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox on NYC Public Advocate Election Results

February 26, 2019

“Tonight, tens of thousands of New Yorkers sent a message that they are unhappy with the direction of this city under liberal Mayor de Blasio and want real accountability. We congratulate Councilman Ulrich on running a hard-fought race and distinguishing himself as a true common-sense candidate. While he came up short, this race affirmed that Republicans can compete in New York City and issues matter. As the only candidate in the race to support Amazon and oppose the congestion pricing tax, he cemented his status as an independent leader who will stand up to powerful political interests on behalf of New York City residents.”

February 26, 2019

“Cuomo’s congestion pricing scheme is just another tax on overburdened New Yorkers who are already being nickeled and dimed to death. Governor Cuomo has wasted billions on his corrupt publicity projects while ignoring the growing MTA crisis and now is trying to cover up that mismanagement by taxing New Yorkers and rushing through legalized marijuana for the sake of its revenues, despite mounting evidence of health and public safety concerns.”

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox on Amazon Pulling Out of New York


February 14, 2019… “Amazon pulling out of New York is an unfortunate result of the poor leadership and bad economic policies of this state. It should have come as no surprise that this deal, driven in secret by Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio, which offered billions in corporate welfare and other perks, was met with concern and opposition when it was rammed down everyone’s throats. If New York didn’t have one of the worst business climates in the country, we would have been able to attract Amazon– and many other companies– on the merits of our economy. Until we have a governor and legislature who are serious about reversing the state’s economic decline and making us competitive again, we are going to continue to lose jobs and people to other states. This should be a huge wake-up call.”

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Cox on JCOPE Dropping Appeal to Article 78 Ruling


January 31, 2019
“Today’s sudden development that JCOPE is now dropping its appeal under a new admission that they allegedly already took a vote on investigating the clear crimes committed by Governor Cuomo and his top aide demands immediate answers, such as when the alleged vote was taken and why they misled the court. Why did they request an extension from the court and me to conduct a meeting they already had?
JCOPE’s actions, despite hard evidence, including sworn testimony from the federal Percoco trial, to continuously protect Governor Cuomo from prosecution have been nothing short of corrupt. They are making a mockery of our legal system and we will not rest until justice has been served.”

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox on Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long’s Retirement Announcement


“For his entire political career and for more than 30 years as Chairman of New York’s Conservative Party, Mike Long has served as an indefatigable champion of conservative principles. A true Marine, Mike Long’s determination, grit and integrity served as a guiding light for a generation of conservative, and indeed many other, New Yorkers. I am proud to have served alongside him and count him as a trusted mentor and loyal friend.  In all matters his word was his bond. I wish him all the best in this new chapter of his life with Eileen, and I trust they will enjoy more time with their family and many grandchildren.”

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Cox on JCOPE Filing Appeal to Block Vote on Cuomo Corruption


January 25, 2019… “JCOPE’s 11th hour appeal is a last-ditch attempt to block the judge’s ruling on our Article 78 lawsuit requiring them to adhere to their governing laws and take a vote on whether to investigate the clear crimes committed by Governor Cuomo and his closest confidante and campaign manager Joe Percoco. Every day that passes, JCOPE is proving itself to be brazenly beholden creature of the Governor, not dedicated to protecting the people of New York.

“We will seek to block the automatic stay triggered by the appeal, and request an expedited process. JCOPE’s stall tactics, refusal to follow the law and blatant disregard of evidence, all in an attempt to protect the Governor, sends another chilling message that he is above the law.”
