New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is pushing back against President Trump’s criticism of an investigation of the NRA.
Cuomo wouldn’t comment as to the specifics of the investigation, but he didn’t hold back his criticism of the organization.

Cuomo said state Attorney General Letitia James is well within her jurisdiction since the gun rights group is chartered in New York.
On Saturday, the attorney general’s office announced they had issued subpoenas and started their inquiry into the NRA’s finances.
President Trump says the NRA is under siege from Cuomo and James, adding they’re illegally using the state’s legal apparatus to target the group.

Opponents say the legislation would hurt businesses in the region.
The bill now heads to Governor Cuomo’s desk.
