CNN to Review Records Detailing How Chris Cuomo Helped His Brother Discredit and Smear Accusers

HeadlineNov 30, 2021

CNN has announced it will review newly released information that details how anchor Chris Cuomo helped his brother — disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo — strategize a defense against mounting accusations of sexual harassment. Thousands of pages of new evidence and sworn testimony were released Monday, showing Andrew Cuomo — who was found to have sexually harassed at least 11 women — heavily relied on his allies, including his younger brother, to manipulate the press and discredit his accusers. Documents include text messages between Chris Cuomo and Melissa DeRosa, a former top aide to Andrew Cuomo, suggesting the CNN anchor was instrumental in crafting his brother’s defense strategy.
