NEW YORK (NEWS10) – CNN has tweeted a post on social media announcing the immediate termination of prime-time anchor Chris Cuomo. CNN said they have retained a respected law firm to conduct a review about his involvement to aide his brother, then former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, accused of sexual harassment.

CNN statement: “Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense.”

According to CNN despite the termination, their investigation will continue as appropriate. Documents released by New York Attorney General Letitia James after an investigation into former governor Andrew Cuomo showed that Chris Cuomo while working as one of CNN’s top anchors, was, in fact, former executive chamber staff and outside advisor.
