Republicans of New York Assembly announced that they are moving forward with a resolution to impeach Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The announcement was made Monday during a press conference.

"The governor's lost so much credibility and trust that we don't feel like he can go forward and govern, so we want to move ahead, do this impeachment assembly," said Will Barclay, Assembly Republican Leader.

There have been multiple bipartisan calls for the governor to resign or be impeached. Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, both Democrats, have called for Cuomo's resignation after several new accusers have come forward.

Although Cuomo has apologized for making any of the women feel uncomfortable, he continues to deny specific allegations of sexual misconduct and any inappropriate touching.

"There is no way I resign," Cuomo said.
