    Joint Statement from Governor Andrew Cuomo and Governor Gretchen Whitmer on US DOJ’s Request to Four Democratic Governors for Documents Related to Nursing Homes

    LANSING, Mich. — Below is a joint statement from Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Governor Andrew Cuomo on the U.S. Department of Justice’s request to four democratic governor’s for documents related to nursing homes:  

    “This is nothing more than a transparent politicization of the Department of Justice in the middle of the Republican National Convention.  It’s no coincidence the moment the Trump administration is caught weakening the CDC’s COVID-19 testing guidelines to artificially lower the number of positive cases, they launched this nakedly partisan deflection. At least 14 states — including Kentucky, Utah, and Arizona — have issued similar nursing home guidance all based on federal guidelines – and yet the four states listed in the DOJ’s request have a Democratic governor.  DOJ should send a letter to CMS and CDC since the State’s advisories were modeled after their guidance.”
