Segment 2 – Janice Dean: If Cuomo won’t resign, impeachment proceedings should begin

Janice Dean called on lawmakers to begin the impeachment process against Gov. Andrew Cuomo, following comments by the governor that he would not resign over the alleged cover-up of thousands of nursing home deaths in New York and multiple sexual harassment allegations. The Fox News senior meteorologist said that despite the tendency for media outlets to focus on Cuomo’s “salacious” sexual harassment allegations by four former employees of the governor’s administration, people should not lose sight of the nursing home scandal that killed over 15,0000 elderly in the state.

Janice Dean currently serves as senior meteorologist for FOX News Channel (FNC). In addition, she is the morning meteorologist for FNC’s FOX & Friends (weekdays 6-9AM/ET). She joined the network in January 2004. In addition to her role at FNC, Dean is the author of “Freddy the Frogcaster” a series of children’s books tailored towards teaching the weather. Most recently, Janice donated all of the earnings from her book toTeam Rubicon, an organization dedicated to providing disaster relief to those affected by natural disasters.

Segment 4 – Gov. Cuomo’s advisers altered report on coronavirus nursing-home deaths
