Dennis C. Vacco Speaks with Spectrum News on Former Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Continuing Legal Investigation

Dennis C. Vacco, a former New York state attorney general who works now with Lippes Mathias LLP, pointed out how the referral was made to James directly and it was Cuomo’s choice to hand the investigation over to her.

He appointed the attorney general, she brought in outside independent counsel. There's nothing in that executive order that would suggest that she could not be involved.”

Vacco also questioned the motive of Cuomo continuing to rehash the same arguments, even though he is out of office.
