On Tuesday, President Biden was asked by a reporter if he was going to stand by his March comments that if the investigation found that the sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo were true, he should resign. Biden said he stands by his statement.

- But first, I'd like to start with the news of the day, given back in March you said that if the investigation confirmed the allegations against Governor Cuomo, then he should resign. So will you now call on him to resign, given the investigator said the 11 women were credible?

JOE BIDEN: I stand by that statement.

- Are you now calling on him to resign?

JOE BIDEN: Yes.

- And if he doesn't resign, do you believe he should be impeached and removed from office?

JOE BIDEN: Let's take one thing at a time. I think he should resign.

- Do you--

JOE BIDEN: I understand that the state legislature may decide to impeach. I don't know that for a fact. I've not read all that data.

- And he's using a photo of you embracing him in his self-defense to say that these are commonplace kind of embraces that he made in the allegations against him. Do you condone that?

JOE BIDEN: Look. I'm not going to flyspeck this. I'm sure there are some embraces that were totally innocent. But apparently, the attorney general decided there were things that weren't.
