Gov. Cuomo denies interfering with Moreland Commission

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo continues to deny reports that accuse him of interfering with the Moreland Commission.



Cuomo insisted at a conference in Buffalo on Monday that his administration never impeded the work of the now defunct Moreland Commission. 



Cuomo appointed the commission last year to investigate government corruption. 



Some claim Cuomo's top aides pressured Moreland Commission workers not to investigate some of Cuomo's campaign donors and supporters.



U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara is questioning the disbanding of the commission and says his office is reviewing its files.
