Disgraced ex-CNN anchor Chris Cuomo accused CNN President Jeff Zucker of having full knowledge of the now-former host's involvement in attempting to quash the sexual harassment allegations against his brother, ex-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).

CNN terminated Cuomo's employment on Saturday after initially suspending him following a report from the New York state attorney general's office that showed Cuomo worked tirelessly alongside his ex-governor brother's handlers in order to keep bad publicity at bay.

Cuomo said that Zucker was fully aware of what was happening behind the scenes, according to a Sunday evening report from the Wall Street Journal.

The report, titled "CNN President Jeff Zucker Protected Chris Cuomo. Then Came a U-Turn," alleged that Zucker stood by Cuomo as early as May following the accusations against the cable news anchor.

"In a virtual town hall with staffers in May, he conceded that Chris Cuomo had 'made a mistake,' but also said he wasn't surprised that the anchor discussed the matter with his brother," the report read. "Mr. Zucker said suspending Chris Cuomo would be 'punishment for the sake of punishing.'"
