New York governor Andrew Cuomo is expected to be interviewed on Saturday as part of the state attorney general’s investigation into sexual harassment claims made against him.
The interview is a sign that the attorney general’s office is nearing the end of its investigation into Mr Cuomo, who is preparing to run for a fourth term as governor next year.
Investigators have spoken with all of the governor’s accusers and were always expected to interview Mr Cuomo, who said at the start of the probe in March that he would “fully co-operate”. Mr Cuomo is also facing an impeachment inquiry in the state assembly.
Several women have accused Mr Cuomo, a Democrat, of inappropriate touching and offensive remarks.
Mr Cuomo initially apologised and said he “learned an important lesson” about his behaviour around women, though he has since denied he did anything wrong and questioned the motivations of accusers and fellow Democrats who have called for his resignation.
Mr Cuomo has been in office since 2011 and has rebuffed calls to step aside over the allegations.
