No easy answers in prosecutor's probe of Cuomo
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- What could happen with an investigation into allegations that Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration meddled with the work of the Moreland anti-corruption commission? It's a simple question with no easy answers.
Even top legal experts say much about the case is complex.
They agree that any recent attempts to influence commissioners or conceal documents -- after it shut down and Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara took its files and issued subpoenas -- could expose administration officials to federal charges.
However, legal experts say any improper interference with the commission while it was operating to shield Cuomo allies -- suggested in news reports and denied by Cuomo -- would be an issue for a state prosecutor to pursue.
None so far, including those who were directly involved with the commission, has volunteered.
