ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo panned a federal subpoena to his office over its hiring practices, saying there was nothing done illegally.
Cuomo’s office confirmed Friday it had received a subpoena from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for New York’s Eastern District over the hiring of executive office employees who were technically put on the payroll of other agencies and authorities.
Cuomo said the process has been a common practice in government for decades.
“You know as much as I know,” Cuomo told reporters at the Capitol about the probe.
“Every administration on the state level since Rockefeller has hired people and detailed them. The federal government does it. The White House does it. The Department of Justice does it. So that’s all I know.”
