Committee Chair Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) shared a message from independent committee counsel Davis Polk & Wardwell:

“We write to inform you that the Committee’s investigation is nearing completion and the
Assembly will soon consider potential articles of impeachment against your client. Accordingly, we
invite you to provide any additional evidence or written submissions that you would like the Committee
to consider before its work concludes. To the extent that you wish to share any such materials with the
Committee, please do so by no later than 5:00 pm on August 13, 2021.”

Lavine says the counsel has previously asked for relevant documents, and that the Judiciary Committee “continues to expect full compliance from the Governor.”

The Judiciary Committee is planning to meet on Monday morning.
