CHRIS CUOMO: Earlier than we wrap up tonight, there’s yet another factor I do need to say about me, my brother, my household, and also you. First, thanks. Thanks for reaching out. I recognize the priority and the assist. I actually do

My brother, as you recognize, resigned as governor of New York and will likely be stepping down subsequent week. There are lots of people feeling a variety of damage and a variety of ache proper now.

However you must also know I by no means coated my brother’s troubles as a result of I clearly have a battle and there are guidelines at CNN about that. I mentioned final 12 months that his appearances on this present could be short-lived they usually had been. The final was over a 12 months in the past, lengthy earlier than any form of scandal. I additionally mentioned again then {that a} day would come when he must be held to account and I can not do this. I mentioned point-blank, I can not be goal relating to my household. So, I by no means reported on the scandal.

And when it occurred, I attempted to be there for my brother. I am not an advisor. I am a brother. I wasn’t answerable for something. I used to be there to hear and supply my take and my recommendation to my brother was easy and constant.

And as you recognize, again in Might once I was informed to now not talk with my brother’s aides in any group conferences, I acknowledged it was a mistake, I apologized to my colleagues, and I ended and I meant it.
