CNN host Chris Cuomo used his position as a journalist to gather information about upcoming accusations of sexual harassment against his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, according to new documents released by the New York Attorney General’s office.

Andrew resigned in August following a report by New York Attorney General Letitia James that found he sexually harassed multiple women. Last week the New York Assembly Judiciary Committee, which was conducting a separate probe, released its own report corroborating James’s findings. James has since announced her candidacy for New York governor, presenting a challenge to Kathy Hochul, who took over from Andrew on an interim basis, in a campaign for the Democratic nomination in next year’s race.
