Chris Cuomo denied that he lied to the public after it was revealed that he has been advising his brother, former Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo, who was accused of sexual harassment by several women.

"My brother, as you know, resigned as governor of New York and will be stepping down next week," Cuomo said. "There are a lot of people feeling a lot of hurt and a lot of pain right now. And my hope is that ultimately, everyone involved can get to a better place, that some higher good will be served in all of this."

Cuomo throws his brother all the way under the bus to try and save his job at CNN.

"It was a unique situation being a brother to a politician in a scandal and being part of the media. I tried to do the right thing, and I just want you all to know that. As I've said, we have rules here at CNN that prevent me from reporting on my brother. They remain in place and will continue to. Tonight, I simply wanted to address something that given what's happened, I just felt it needed to be said. This will be my final word on it, and I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to do so," Cuomo adds.
