At the beginning of this week, the New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office unveiled new details about the steps CNN broadcaster Chris Cuomo took to aid his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, during the period of sexual harassment allegations last year. These details, including transcripts of conversations and messages between the siblings on dealing with the accusations, have led CNN to initiate an indefinite suspension of Chris Cuomo from his duties on their platform.

A representative from CNN stated on Tuesday evening, “Transcripts and exhibits made public on Monday by the New York Attorney General’s office shed light on Chris Cuomo’s contributions to his brother’s defense efforts. The content of these documents raises significant concerns for us as a network.”

“When Chris revealed his involvement in advising his brother’s team, he violated our policies, and we acknowledged this publicly,” the representative continued. “While recognizing his familial obligations, we also realized the delicate position he was in, prioritizing family ties over professional commitments.”

“Nevertheless, these documents suggest a deeper level of involvement in his brother’s defense than what was previously known to us,” the representative added. “Consequently, we have decided to suspend Chris from his duties indefinitely until a comprehensive evaluation can be conducted.”

In his personal SiriusXM radio program, Cuomo mentioned that he will cooperate with CNN’s investigative process, emphasizing that he never intended to compromise his colleagues. “It’s tough to say this. It’s humiliating,” he expressed during his show. “But I accept it.”
