“Governor Cuomo must resign,” said House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, adding that he “lost the confidence of New York people.” 

Democratic representatives Nydia Velazquez, Grace Meng, Yvette Clarke, Adriano Espaillat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman have released statements calling for his resignation.
