Chris Cuomo fired from CNN for helping brother during sexual harassment allegations 


The presenter had been suspended indefinitely, after it was known that he took advantage of his role as a journalist to assist former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and obtain information about the complaints against him.

The CNN news network fired Chris Cuomo on Saturday after an investigation by the New York attorney general showed in more detail how the presenter helped his brother, former governor Andrew Cuomo, during the accusations against him of sexual misconduct. .

"We hired a respected law firm to review what happened and he was fired with immediate effect," the network said on its public relations Twitter account.

Documents from Attorney General Letitia James' investigation were released this week showing details of how the journalist offered to obtain information on possible complaints against the former governor and assisted his close team of advisers.

The revelation raised "serious doubts" about Cuomo's conduct, the network said in a statement this week, for which it had first decided to suspend him indefinitely. 

Andrew Cuomo, who was facing the possibility of impeachment, resigned in August and has denied doing anything wrong.
