Chris Cuomo, who once falsely told CNN viewers it was ILLEGAL to read Wikileaks documents so they had to rely on “the media,” got busted with a stunning omission on his own show Thursday.
Chris Cuomo had a golden opportunity to follow up on his own network’s bombshell report that a FBI agent was under investigation for falsifying a document used to obtain a FISA warrant, by asking former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe about it.
Instead, Cuomo pretended that the bombshell report did not even happen and only spoke about the impeachment hearing his entire show.
Cuomo definitely did not win over any critics who consider his show biased with the move.
.@ChrisCuomo routinely brings on Andy McCabe and Jim Baker to provide their commentary on the peril Trump faces from the impeachment hearing. Looking forward to hearing their take (which probably informed the defensive leak) on the FBI agent who altered the FISA document.

Fox News reports CNN anchor Chris Cuomo made a stunning omission on Thursday night and failed to ask former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former FBI General Counsel James Baker about the network’s own report regarding an unnamed FBI official being under criminal investigation by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
CNN first reported that Horowitz had been investigating an FBI official who allegedly altered a document used to obtain a FISA warrant in order to surveil a former Trump campaign adviser during the 2016 election. Horowitz reportedly turned the evidence over to U.S. Attorney John Durham, who has launched a criminal probe in the origins of the Russia investigation.
The Washington Post also verified the reporting.
However, despite his network breaking the news hours earlier, Cuomo did not mention the report during his entire show Thursday night, most notably, during his sit-down with McCabe and Baker, who are now CNN contributors.
Instead, the “Cuomo Prime Time” anchor spent the entire hour covering the ongoing impeachment hearing into President Trump and spoke with McCabe and Baker on how Thursday’s testimony of former National Security Council aide Dr. Fiona Hill “shattered GOP conspiracy theories.”
