Cuomo was questioned by external lawyers brought by Justice Attorney Leticia Jenkins and was asked these questions under oath, according to reports.

Cuomo’s former assistant, Lindsay Boylan, was the first woman to accuse the governor of misconduct in December, claiming he was trying to kiss her on the lips at his New York office in 2018.
Since then, several other helpers and acquaintances have come forward with accusations involving the governor proposing them, asking inappropriate questions about their sex lives and sexually assaulting them without their consent.
Investigators have already spoken to Cuomo’s prosecutors, and it is believed that the investigation may be in its final stages.
A spokesman for Cuomo declined to comment on details of the barbecue Saturday.

“We have repeatedly said the governor does not want to comment on this review until he has cooperated, but the continued leaks are more evidence of the transparent political motivation for the attorney general’s review,” Cuomo spokesman Richard Azzopardi said in a statement.
Earlier, Cuomo had vehemently denied any wrongdoing.
“I’ve already told New Yorkers where I am,” Cuomo said in May. “I did nothing wrong. And period, and I do not resign, and I do my work every day.”
