CNN's Chris Cuomo suspended over help to governor brother

CNN star Chris Cuomo has been suspended indefinitely over help he gave his ex-New York governor brother while he was battling sex abuse allegations.

The decision came after the New York attorney general released new documents that showed the extent of his work for his older sibling, Andrew Cuomo.

CNN said the documents show "a greater level of involvement in his brother's efforts than we previously knew".

Andrew Cuomo resigned in August after prosecutors said he harassed staff.

Chris Cuomo's behind-the-scenes efforts to help his politician brother were widely considered a breach of journalistic ethics in the media industry.

The thousands of pages release by Attorney General Letitia James on Monday show that the younger Cuomo continuously pressed the governor's staff to let him play a larger role in his brother's defence.
