New York Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie defended the decision to suspend the impeachment inquiry into Andrew Cuomo Friday, denying there was a “deal” to drop it.

The Democratic lawmaker spoke at a press conference Monday as the Assembly Judiciary Committee laid out its plans to impeach the governor. The next day Cuomo announced his resignation.

On Friday Heastie announced that the Assembly would be suspending its impeachment inquiry, saying in a statement the legislature can’t impeach an official who’s no longer in office.
