Chris Cuomo Given ‘Confidential And Often Privileged Information’ When Advising Andrew Cuomo: Report

In the bombshell report issued by the office of New York Democrat Attorney General Letitia James, which accused New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo of a series of incidents of sexual harassment, James also indicated that Cuomo’s brother Chris, an anchor for CNN, was part of a group of “confidantes” who were “brought in to control and direct the response” to the sexual harassment allegations against Andrew Cuomo and noted that he was given “confidential and often privileged information” despite the fact he had no formal role with the state.

The report stated, “As additional allegations of sexual harassment against the Governor surfaced in the spring of 2021, the Governor’s team of advisors from within and outside the Chamber had ongoing and regular discussions about how to respond to the allegations publicly. The group included the Governor, senior Executive Chamber staff Ms. DeRosa, Mr. Azzopardi, Peter Ajemian (the Governor’s Director of Communications at the time), Ms. Mogul, and Ms. Garvey. It also included Ms. Lacewell, Jefrey Pollock, Lis Smith, Mr. Cohen, Mr. Vlasto, Mr. Bamberger, and Ms. Lever, as well as the Governor’s brother Chris Cuomo.”

The report added that Chris Cuomo was part of a group that was “regularly provided with confidential and often privileged information about state operations and helped make decisions that impacted State business and employees—all without any formal role, duty, or obligation to the State.”- READ MORE
