CNN Suspends Chris Cuomo Following Involvement in Helping Brother Andrew Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

Chris Cuomo has been suspended by CNN.

Via The Hollywood Reporter, the network announced that the longtime newscaster will not be on the channel for the foreseeable future.

The decision came after documents and transcripts released by the New York Attorney General’s office detailed how Chris had used his connections to try and help his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, to respond to claims of sexual harassment.

“The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense,” a CNN spokesperson shared in a statement.

The added, “The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions. When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly. But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second.”

“However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew. As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”

Following Andrew‘s ousting as governor, Chris was also accused of sexual harassment himself.
