As CNN announces the departure of another top executive new details of former anchor Chris Cuomo’s sexual assault allegations is coming to light.

As part of a report laying out the timeline of how accusations against Cuomo’s brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo led to the anchor’s firing CNN’s lawyers in December received a letter from an attorney for a woman claiming Chris Cuomo had sexually assaulted her years ago.

The Hill reports:

The woman, who was not named in the letter, said in 2011 when she and Cuomo both worked at ABC News, the anchor invited her to his office for lunch.

The woman alleges that during the meeting, Cuomo badgered her for sex, and after she declined, he assaulted her and she ran out of the room, the Times reported after speaking with five friends and former colleagues who said the woman told them about the alleged incident.

“After years without any substantive communication from Mr. Cuomo whatsoever, Ms. Doe suspected he was concerned about her coming forward publicly with her allegations and wanted to use the proposed segment as an opportunity to ‘test the waters’ and discourage her from going on the record about his sexual misconduct,” Katz wrote.

The allegations of sexual misconduct made by the woman against Cuomo were first reported by news outlets in December, soon after Cuomo’s firing.

Cuomo has denied the woman’s allegations.

I recall a former President who faced numerous sexual assault allegations. And, it wasn’t Jimmy Carter.
