Here’s what he said.
According to Breitbart News, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo begged President Donald Trump to pardon New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.
Cuomo said, “It’s almost as if he’s trying to purposely create anarchy and desecrate the entire system on the way out the door.”
He added, “I don’t even search for a rationale…you’re assuming a rationale. I don’t believe there’s always logic. I don’t know that it’s that premeditated. It could just be a favor for some contact, a favor for someone in the Jewish community, a favor for a donor. Who knows what it is? He does not need a logical explanation for his actions.” You can watch a clip of Cuomo’s remarks here.
