President Joe Biden on Sunday declined to call on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign.
“I think the investigation is under way and we should see what it brings us."
Cuomo has been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct by at least seven women, including former aides.
Like Biden, Democratic U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has declined to join calls for Cuomo's resignation.
She told ABC's "This Week" program on Sunday that the allegations must be investigated.
Meanwhile, other leading democrats have taken a tougher stance.
New York senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, along with progressive Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have urged Cuomo to resign.
Cuomo denied sexual assault allegations again on Friday.
He said it was “reckless and dangerous” for politicians to ask him to resign without all the facts.
