Chris Cuomo has been fired from CNN "effective immediately" after it was revealed he tried to help cover up brother and former Governor Andrew Cuomo's sexual harassment scandal.
"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," CNN shared in a statement on Saturday, December 4. "While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate."
