CNN’s Chris Cuomo has been exposed for his role in his brother’s sexual harassment scandal.
NY Attorney General Letitia James reported that CNN’s Chris Cuomo was one of several unpaid advisors whom the governor consulted with on handling his ongoing sexual harassment allegations.
Chris Cuomo gave suggestions on how his brother should respond to the sexual harassment claims.
Chris Cuomo also told CNN viewers the next day he “obviously” could not cover the harassment claims due to conflict of interest.

From Fox News:
Although CNN President Jeff Zucker acknowledged in May that it was wrong for Chris Cuomo to advise his brother, he issued no punishment for one of the network’s stars… The AG report said Chris Cuomo and others were “regularly provided with confidential and often privileged information about state operations and helped make decisions that impacted State business and employees—all without any formal role, duty, or obligation to the State.”
Despite Chris Cuomo’s documented involvement with his brother’s allegations, CNN almost entirely ignored referencing it when discussing the Attorney General’s report… A notable exception came from “Inside Politics” anchor John King, who mentioned the CNN anchor halfway through his broadcast. He downplayed his extensive involvement in managing his brother’s political crisis as him having “reached out and talked to his brother.”

“I’m going to put this on the record,” King said. “Many of you know this, but the governor’s brother, Chris, works right here at CNN as an anchor. We should note that and he was interviewed as part of the report as someone who reached out and talked to his brother as this crisis was unfolding.”

TRENDING 👇 Olympian Has Incredible Response After Winning Gold
This is refreshing to see. Amid rampant left-wing protests by U.S. athletes at the Olympics, one Olympian is showing liberals what real patriotism looks like.
Chicago-born U.S. athlete Tamyra Mensah-Stock became the first African-American woman to win gold in wrestling. What was her response? She thanked God and expressed joy at representing the United States.
While holding the American flag tightly, Mensah-Stock said, “It feels amazing. I love representing the U.S.”
“I freaking love living there. I love it, and I’m so happy I get to represent USA!” she said. She also stated, “I’m feeling very happy and I keep trying not to cry, but it keeps happening. I just wanna go into a dark room and just cry.”
“It’s by the grace of God I’m able to even move my feet,” she said. “Like I just leave it in His hands, and I pray that all the practice, that the hell that my freaking coaches put me through pays off. And every single time it does, and I get better and better and it’s so weird that there is no cap to the limit that I can do.” Watch the clip:
We need to protect this woman at all costs… An infectious beam of positivity, her spirit is undeniable. What an incredible representative of our sport and our great country. This interview is so emotional! We are SO proud of you! 🇺🇸 #TMS @MensahTamStock pic.twitter.com/372k1gpu0O
