ALBANY, N.Y. (WTEN) — New York Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Judiciary Committee Chair Charles Levine held a press conference Monday about their impeachment probe of Gov. Andrew Cuomo. They said they are continuing to review the evidence and plan to make a determination with the next few weeks.

This comes less than a week after Attorney General Letitia James released a damning report about Cuomo’s treatment of government staff. The Judiciary Committee has been working on the question of impeachment independent of the Attorney General investigation for months.
