Statement from NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox on JCOPE Move to Drop Appeal

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.”
