New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is scheduled to meet this weekend with the lawyers leading the state attorney general’s inquiry into sexual harassment allegations against him, a source familiar with the situation confirmed to NBC News.
Cuomo will be interviewed by Joon Kim and Anne Clark, the two outside lawyers leading Attorney General Letitia James’ inquiry into accusations of sexual harassment that led members of the state’s congressional delegation to call for his resignation, the source said, confirming a report in the New York Times.
It’s unclear how long the meeting is scheduled to last. Kim and Clark have been investigating the allegations for months, gathering documents from Cuomo’s office and spending hours interviewing the women who said they were preyed upon by the three-term governor. The source said the inquiry may require Cuomo to be interviewed a second time if the lawyers deem it necessary.
Cuomo has been hit with over a half-dozen sexual harassment allegations from different women, including staffers, since March. He has denied touching anyone inappropriately but initially acknowledged that he may have acted in ways that unintentionally made people feel uncomfortable and apologized.
In recent months, however, he’s become more combative and said he hadn’t harassed anybody.
