NEW YORK (AP) - CNN has fired anchor Chris Cuomo after details emerged about how he assisted his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as the politician faced sexual harassment allegations earlier this year.

The network suspended Chris Cuomo earlier in the week to investigate his involvement with his brother’s defense. CNN hired a law firm for the review.

The firm recommended Chris Cuomo’s termination and CNN chief Jeff Zucker informed the anchor of the decision on Saturday.

Cuomo issued a statement on Twitter calling the decision disappointing. Even with the firing, CNN said it will continue to investigate Cuomo’s conduct “as appropriate.”
