Azzopardi: Impeachment Would Not Have Been Impartial. Long time Cuomo spokesman Rick Azzopardi alleges a trial would not have been fair. In a letter to the Albany Times Union, he says the bid to oust the former Governor was politically motivated. He calls Impeachment a political, not a legal, process. Azzopardi cites the statements of a majority of the legislators who would have sat in judgment. They called for resignation within hours of Letitia James issuing her damning report. He concludes with an ominous warning: “anyone who thinks he will not continue to fight until the truth fully comes to light doesn’t know Andrew Cuomo.” Azzopardi: Impeachment Would Not Have Been Impartial.
