Attorney General Letitia James’ report shows that Andrew Cuomo’s brother Chris Cuomo, a CNN anchor, had a role in advising the Governor on what to say when addressing the allegations made against him.
In the report issued by James, Chris Cuomo’s name appears 4 times and is one of the many outside advisors to the governor that was given private and privileged information that had an impact on the government. These advisors had no role or obligation to the state.
The investigation included an email sent to the Governor by his brother’s advisors that suggested he state he had never intended to offend or cause harm to anyone.
The suggestion in the email stated “sometimes I am playful and make jokes. My only desire is to add some levity and banter to what is a very serious business.”
