According to a new CNBC report “a sexual misconduct allegation led to the firing of CNN primetime anchor Chris Cuomo, attorney Debra Katz said Sunday.”
“The news network on Saturday said it fired Cuomo after “new information” came to light during a review of how he helped his brother and former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo respond to sexual harassment allegations,” the report continues.
Katz said in a statement “Hearing the hypocrisy of Chris Cuomo’s on-air words and disgusted by his efforts to try to discredit these women, my client retained counsel to report his serious sexual misconduct against her to CNN.”
Providing the allegation to CNN, she also offered to provide “documentary evidence” of her allegations.
“My client came forward at this time because she felt in sharing her story and related documentation, she could help protect other women,” she explained.
Per CNBC “Katz also represents Charlotte Bennett, a former health policy advisor in Andrew Cuomo’s administration who accused the former governor of inappropriate behavior.”
