Chris Cuomo and CNN are no more.

After the network suspended the senior presenter during the week after it was revealed that he assisted his brother, former New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, during his fight against complaints of sexual harassment, tonight (Saturday through Sunday) an announcement was made about his dismissal.

"Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week following new evidence of his involvement in protecting his brother," the network said in a statement.



Cuomo himself tweeted that he was disappointed with the decision: "This is not the way I want to finish my job at CNN, but I've already said why I helped my brother. So let me say, as much as it disappoints, I can not be more proud of the Cuomo Prime Time team. "And the work they did to make it the number one program in the most challenging time slot. I owe it to everyone and I will miss these special people, who did important work."



Andrew Cuomo resigned in August after appearing under investigation for harassing facts on his staff, and his brother Chris' attempt to help him behind the scenes was seen as a blatant violation of journalistic ethics.The documents showed that Chris put pressure on his brother's team to give him a bigger place in his defense efforts.



"You have to trust me," he wrote to Melissa Drusa, his brother's secretary, in March.

"We make mistakes we can't afford."

Over the past year, the network has briefly lifted the restriction imposed on Chris from his brother coverage after New York became the focus of the corona plague worldwide.

He began interviewing his brother on the broadcast and praising his conduct as governor.

The network has previously defended Chris Cuomo, who joined the channel in 2013, amid claims he is assisting his brother, but on Tuesday admitted that "the documents, which we did not know before their release, raise serious questions".



"When Chris admitted to us that he was advising his brother's staff, he violated our regulations and we announced it publicly. However, we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put his family and work first. However, the documents "These indicate a greater degree of involvement in his brother's efforts than we knew before," the network said in a statement.



Among the documents released by the prosecution in New York were dozens of emails and text messages. "Please, let me help with the preparation," he wrote in a message to his brother's senior assistant. He also promised to create a brief with other media outlets to try and find out if other allegations against his brother are about to be published. At one point, de Rosa asked him to check out his "sources." "I'm about it, "he replied.



Cuomo resigned in August following an investigation against him, which revealed that he sexually harassed 11 women who worked with him, and pressured out of his Democratic Party, including that of President Joe Biden.

His brother apologized in May for talking to his brother's staff, claiming he supported victims of sexual assault.
