CNN’s Chris Cuomo denied allegations of sexual harassment while working at ABC News in a conversation with former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, according to audio footage played by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Tuesday.
Carlson played a small portion of Cuomo’s conversation with Cohen during his show Tuesday, although the full conversation was reportedly longer. The CNN host dismissed allegations of sexual harassment during the clip and asked Cohen if he looks “like the kind of fucking guy who’s gotta do that.”
“You know, I’m always careful when I talk to media,” Cuomo is heard saying. “Do you know how many fucking phone calls I’ve gotten from people at ABC who say that reporters are calling and lying about things they’ve heard about me to try to get stories about me when I was at ABC?”
“Guys calling and saying, ‘I heard he was the Charlie Rose of ABC. He used to invite women to a hotel and open his bathrobe.’ Do I look like the kind of fucking guy who’s gotta do that?”
Rose’s lengthy career in media was cut short in 2017 after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment. He said that he “behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate.” Rose also denied “wrongdoings” in another statement, according to USA Today.
