CNN indefinitely suspended anchor Chris Cuomo after details emerged about how he assisted his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (R-N.Y.), who faces federal sexual harassment charges.

CNN said that it came to its decision after reviewing documents released by New York’s attorney general earlier this week. The report found that Cuomo had taken a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than the network had previously known.

“As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation,” CNN said.

According to the Associated Press, “Cuomo pressed sources for information on his brother’s accusers and reported back to the governor’s staff, and was active in helping craft their response to the charges, according to emails and a transcript of his testimony to investigators working for state Attorney General Letitia James.”

James found that the former governor sexually harassed at least 11 women.
