CNN Suspends Chris Cuomo Indefinitely

CNN has “indefinitely” suspended Chris Cuomo following new disclosures about how he helped his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in the midst of a scandal over allegations sexual harassment.

The announcement came a day after state Attorney General Letitia James released a trove of subpoenaed records that include texts showing the “Cuomo Prime Time” host agreed to contact news industry “sources” for advance information on reports regarding his older brother.

In a prepared statement, CNN said the material “shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense.”

“The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions,” the network said.

“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.”

CNN added: “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.”
