(AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has urged New Yorkers to “wait for the facts.” But patience has grown thin in the state legislature, where leaders in the state Assembly have announced an impeachment investigation, a first step toward potentially removing Cuomo from office. Cuomo has rebuffed calls to resign and staked his political future on the outcome of an independent investigation by state Attorney General Letitia James, who is examining allegations that the governor sexually harassed or inappropriately touched several female aides. The road to any impeachment proceeding is complicated, though, and could take months to play out.
