On Monday night, the CNN anchor did his best to distance himself from the latest revelations involving his older brother. During his show, Cuomo never mentioned the allegations that he played a controversial role in then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s defense.
Cuomo eventually resigned over mounting sexual harassment allegations. But not before his younger brother tried to bail him out. (RELATED: CNN Legal Analyst Accuses Rittenhouse of ‘Rehearsed’ Testimony)
The younger Cuomo went so far as allegedly use his media sources to get intel on his brother’s accusers.
The latest reporting includes Chris Cuomo’s private texts revealing that he sought to help his brother handle the accusations, and that the CNN host used his sources to find out who was behind them. Additionally, Chris Cuomo “snooped into the progress of Ronan Farrow’s reporting about his brother Andrew Cuomo and relayed it to the governor’s inner circle, according to a newly released transcript of his testimony to New York state investigators in July.”
Cuomo’s colleague, Reliable Sources anchor Brian Stelter appeared to come to the host’s defense on Monday.
“For what it’s worth, when Chris Cuomo addressed his actions on the air back in August, he said ‘this will be my final word on it,’ and he hasn’t addressed the matter on TV since,” tweeted Stelter.
Handing off to Don Lemon, the two had another one of their lovefests. Unlike in August, when they expressed that they love the other only for Lemon to kick off his show with the New York attorney general’s report about Cuomo sexually harassing current and former state employees, Lemon made no mention of the latest reporting about his friend.
