Joon Kim, one of the attorneys in this case was a federal prosecutor who led investigations that sent one of Governor Cuomo’s top assistants behind bars on a bribery conviction.

A statement was released by Kim in James’s office and he said that “These are serious allegations that demand a rigorous and impartial investigation. We will act judiciously and follow the facts wherever they lead.” Clark said that in James’ office that “The people of New York deserve an exhaustive and independent investigation into these allegations, and I am committed to seeing it through,”
