Chris Cuomo alleges Jeff Zucker knew about involvement with Andrew Cuomo sex scandal

Chris Cuomo swung back at his old boss by alleging Jeff Zucker knew he had been helping Andrew Cuomo protect himself.

Former CNN host Chris Cuomo alleged that CNN President Zucker was previously aware of his actions supporting his brother Andrew during allegations  of sexual misconduct.

“[Cuomo and Zucker] were widely known to be extremely close and in regular contact, including about the details of Mr. Cuomo’s support for his brother,” said a spokesperson for Chris Cuomo . The spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal that “there were no secrets about this, as other individuals besides Mr. Cuomo can attest.”

CNN denies Cuomo’s allegations. “He has made a number of accusations that are patently false,” CNN said. “This reinforces why he was terminated for violating our standards and practices, as well as his lack of candor.”
