The New York Attorney General’s office has released roughly six hours of video of former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo testifying about the extent to which he advised his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, while he faced numerous sexual harassment allegations last year.
Cuomo sat down for a deposition on July 15, 2021, in which he spoke at length about his interactions with his brother, his brother’s staff, and his role as a journalist during the scandal.
In one exchange, the former CNN personality spoke about reaching out to his brother’s staffers, and was asked if he used them as sources for his reporting, to which he answered, “No.”
