CNN announced Monday the network would be investigating the conduct of prime-time anchor Chris Cuomo after documents revealed the television host leveraged his role to protect his since-resigned brother in the New York governor’s mansion.
“Please let me help with the prep,” Cuomo wrote in a text to Melissa DeRosa, a top aide to his brother Andrew, as the governor faced a series of sexual harassment allegations this past spring. “We are making mistakes we can’t afford,” he added.
Chris Cuomo previously told viewers that he wasn’t an adviser to his older brother, he was there to “listen and offer my take.”
But new texts show he was advising and running interference for the former governor.

Other text messages made public by the New York attorney general’s office show the CNN anchor used his sources to gather information on what accusations were in the pipeline, and then colluded with his brother’s staff.
“Rumor going around from politico 1-2 more [people] coming out tomorrow,” DeRosa wrote in one text asking Chris to “check your sources.”
