Amid the unfolding crisis for New York seniors after a deadly state executive order was issued in March, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo flew to Washington D.C. to demand then-President Donald Trump fire an official seeking to expose the scandal, according to the official himself, Michael Caputo.

Michael Caputo tells OANN: “Cuomo flew to DC in late May 2020 and told Trump to fire him for publicly criticizing his nursing home policy,” OANN’s Jack Posobiec tweeted. “Caputo was an HHS official working to track nursing home deaths.”
