This is going to be bad for CNN.

Chris Cuomo, who was recently fired from CNN, has just dropped a bombshell and announced that president of CNN Jeff Zucker knew the entire time that he was helping his brother, former Governor Andrew Cuomo, protect himself!

According to the Washington Examiner, Chris Cuomo, who was just recently terminated from his job at CNN, is alleging Jeff Zucker completely knew that he was protecting and trying to cover up for his brother Andrew Cuomo after he was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.

A spokesperson for Chris Cuomo recently claimed that both Chris Cuomo and Zucker were “widely known” to have an extremely close relationship and were often in regular contact with each other. The spokesperson also noted that Zucker fully knew that Mr. Cuomo was using his platform on CNN to to support his brother. Furthermore, the spokesperson noted that there were “no secrets” about any of this and even suggested that others at CNN knew the truth and can attest.

In response, CNN fired back at Cuomo and suggested that he was a liar and has made several accusation which are patently false. “This reinforces why he was terminated for violating our standards and practices, as well as his lack of candor,” CNN explained.

Cuomo was fired over the weekend after the network claimed that they found “new information” that proved Cuomo was involved in his brother’s defense. Before his firing, CNN has suspended Chris Cuomo to investigate the allegations against him.
