ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10)- Albany County District Attorney David Soares said his office will be formally requesting information obtained by the Attorney General’s office from its investigation into the sexual harassment of multiple women by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Soares also said any victim is welcome to contact the Albany County District Attorney’s office with further information related to the AG’s report.

“As this matter is developing and we are reviewing the document released by the Attorney General today, we will refrain from any additional public comment at this time regarding the status of the ongoing criminal investigation by our office,” Soares said in a Tweet.

Attorney General Letitia James revealed the findings of her office’s investigation Tuesday afternoon, calling the findings “disturbing.” She said Gov. Cuomo sexually harassed current and former state workers and said the toxic culture of the Executive office prohibited the women from coming forward.
