The allegations made against Chris have the same problem with the allegations made against Andrew. There is no mention of a civil action with a judge and jury. The only 'action' was to 'fire' both individuals. Andrew's 'misdemeanor' case was almost botched by the County Sheriff. IF BOTH OF THEM HAD THE LAST NAME TRUMP OR GATES THEY BE STILL BE SITTING IN THERE SEATS . NOT ONLY FOR A S HI OW RENEWAL BUT ANOTHER ELECTION FOR GOVERNOR. YEAH . JUSTICE FOR SOME BUT NOT FOR ALL.

I stopped watching CNN because they dismissed & took off Chris Cuomo. He was awesome. Bad decision on CNN I wonder who will get his time slot how about Kacie Hunt. CNN Fire The Wrong Guy ShouldHaveBeenJeffreyToobin This guy is on the news more now than when he had a show on the news. Stop giving the creep brothers attention

Shame on you CNN. He was a good reporter and never even reported any stories on his show regarding his brother. He helped his brother on his personal time. Who wouldn’t have done that? Horrible decision, hope it backfired on you. The fact that he was an accomplice in witness intimidation and evidence tampering in his brother’s case makes his own accuser’s accusation more credible.

If this Allegation is found True after conduct of any Kind of Enquiry Why CNN has Not taken Action Against him Earlier than His Firing I always lean towards believing the women. But he's innocent until proven guilty. Right maga? He was falsely attacked by CNN. I hope Chris sues them for wrongful termination. I’ll never watch CNN again!

Good Lord NBC, now the FOX scandal rag So tired of the media and I am not a homo fan. Stop smearing men without due process for revenue (and I am female)!!

Maybe one day ppl will realize that the anti-Cuomo(s)-campaign started as a trump-op and it still is. Chris Cuomo will heal from the embarrassment, and humiliations cause by his wrongful employment termination, Cuomo must remember, CNN don't own him, He was just an employee with the constitutional right to plan, and fight false, baseless allegations

ChrisCuomo is going to reinvent himself and land a job on FoxNews 😆 Self-serving statement since people normally deny things said about them ha,ha,ha,ha ! Never forget: Lavar Ball clowned Chris on his own show by repeatedly calling him 'Chromo'. lol 5 yr old Michael Vaughan of ID has been missing since July.

However, following Cuomo's termination from CNN, an allegation of sexual misconduct came to light. Following his termination on Saturday, Cuomo denied the sexual misconduct allegation that had this time been made against him. “While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light,” CNN’s statement added. The allegation was first reported by The New York Times . The network said that “while in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. "These apparently anonymous allegations are not true.” Cuomo issued his own statement. To the extent that they were sent to CNN to negate what Chris Cuomo told his audience, he fully stands by his on-air statements about his connection to these issues, both professionally and in a profoundly personal way," a statement from Cuomo's representative Steven Goldberg reads.

"If the goal in making these false and unvetted accusations was to see Mr. So let me now say as disappointing as this is, I could not be more proud of the team at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did as CNN’s #1 show in the most competitive time slot. Cuomo issued a statement on Twitter calling the decision disappointing. Cuomo punished by CNN, that may explain his unwarranted termination." The allegations were submitted to CNN on Wednesday by attorney Debra S.” Cuomo’s demise gained momentum earlier this week, when documents released by New York Attorney General Letitia James after an investigation into the governor that Chris Cuomo played a larger role in his brother’s cover story than first believed. Katz, who represents the unnamed accuser. As women came forward accusing former Gov. Katz said on Saturday that her client is a former junior colleague of Cuomo and that the situation is unrelated to the former Governor of New York, the Times reported. It showed Chris Cuomo stating that looked to use his media connections to help his brother.

The unnamed accuser came forward after hearing Cuomo’s on-air statements in response to the allegations made against his brother, in which Cuomo said he “always cared very deeply about these issues, and profoundly so. I just wanted to tell you that,” according to a statement from Katz. He then kept his brother’s team informed on what was about to be published and what was not. Her office found Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed at least 11 women. In that statement obtained by NBC News, Katz said when her client heard"the hypocrisy of Chris Cuomo’s on-air words and disgusted by his efforts to try to discredit these women, my client retained counsel to report his serious sexual misconduct against her to CNN." Katz said that CNN"acted promptly" after hearing the allegations and fired Cuomo. The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions. "My client came forward at this time because she felt in sharing her story and related documentation, she could help protect other women. Andrew Cuomo resigned in August to avoid a likely impeachment trial.

She will continue to cooperate with CNN’s investigation into her allegations," Katz said. But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second. She added that her client had decided to stay anonymous due to the nature of her allegations. CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment made by NBC News, but in a statement obtained by The Washington Post , the network said it had “retained a respected law firm” and would "investigate as appropriate. As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.” Although Katz stated that CNN"acted promptly" after the allegations, the network said it already has"cause to terminate" due to Cuomo's conduct with his brother. However,"when new allegations came to us this week, we took them seriously, and saw no reason to delay taking immediate action. Now, he is paying the price for that error.

” It did not clarify what the specific allegations were, according to the Post. The Times reported that Katz also represents Charlotte Bennett, a former aide to Andrew Cuomo, who also made accusations of sexual harassment. Cuomo headlined the network’s top rated show in primetime, having moved from a morning slot in 2018. In a statement made after his firing, Cuomo said that he was disappointed but"proud of the team at 'Cuomo Prime Time,'" his show on the network. “This is not how I want my time at CNN to end but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother. Must Read Stories. So let me now say as disappointing as this is, I could not be more proud of the team at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did as CNN’s #1 show in the most competitive time slot,” he said.

In a statement made by CNN after Cuomo was terminated, the network said: “Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense. We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately.” The younger Cuomo, who has hosted “Cuomo Prime Time” since 2017, has previously said that advising his brother was a family matter and that it was appropriate because he was not directly reporting on the situation at the time. Documents released Monday revealed that Cuomo offered to help the former governor .
