Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul says she supports the decision of Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie to suspend the impeachment investigation into Governor Cuomo.

During a visit to the Erie County Fair near Buffalo on Sunday, Hochul said she defers to the leadership of the Assembly on this issue but promised there won't be any controversies in her administration once it begins August 24th. Heastie said Friday the investigation is stopping despite a report from state Attorney General Letitia James saying the governor sexually harassed women. Cuomo has denied those claims repeatedly and said he's stepping down because it's in the best interests of everyone.
