In a press conference today, New York Attorney General Letitia James revealed that an investigation into allegations against Andrew Cuomo concluded that he has sexually harassed multiple women.
New York Times Washington correspondent Maggie Haberman was watching it, and she couldn’t help but be struck by something:
This press conference and the report are way, way, way more detailed and damning that many in press and among Dem operatives expected. What happens now is unclear – ball is in Heastie's court.

Interesting wording there, Maggie.
Amazing. She doesn’t even realize what she wrote here. https://t.co/o5ecP4CLVP

Oh no! She’s said too much.
Why wasn't the press expecting it? https://t.co/o1TTY4Ug3t

Inquiring minds really want to know.
If only you worked in an industry that went out to get the full scope of the story instead of smearing his accusers

Everyone knew Cuomo was a dirtbag but the 4th estate didn't expect such a damning report. https://t.co/HGWevuNRIj

It’s amazing how surprised ‘journalists’ can be when they habitually look the other way to protect their like-minded comrades. https://t.co/t9Xm9IzLBS

How incredibly damning of "many in the press and…Dem operatives." https://t.co/de8eirlThP

And it’s so strange that the press and Dem operatives would be on the same page.
Weird how “many in the press” and “Dem operatives” thinking and expectations were totally aligned! https://t.co/7XZynWYrCO
