CNN confirmed on Saturday that it had terminated network anchor Chris Cuomo following documents newly revealed earlier this week that indicated that he had played a larger role than previously known in assisting his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), during his sexual harassment scandal.

“Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense,” CNN said in a statement. 

“We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately. While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate,” the network added. 

In a statement posted on Twitter, the former anchor said, “This is not how I want my time at CNN to end but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother.”
