Up and coming news anchor and journalist, US Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), has called out former CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo over his recent and epic fall from grace after the network suspended him for using his position to help his embattled brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).
Cuomo was recently suspended from CNN, where he has been reporting news for almost 10 years. The surprise move by the network is a result of the reporter using his occupation to help his brother, former Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), manage his public image amid several waves of sexual assault allegations.
Ironically, Chris Cuomo has used a lot of his time on-air bashing Congressman Matt Gaetz over alleged charges of possible impropriety with an underage girl.
Unlike Governor Cuomo's case, no one has come forward and made any accusations of sexual harassment against Rep. Gaetz.
On his podcast, "Firebrand," Gaetz ignited his monologue simply by stating, "CNN, what a corrupt organization, built on lying to its viewers. They lied about the Russia Hoax, they lied about Trump, lied about me. And the breaking news today, is that they're even lying about themselves, Chris Cuomo specifically."
Gaetz then finishes his point that some of the lies Chris Cuomo has told, "may have been criminal... under oath, taken under the investigation of Cuomo's brother.
"Congressman Gaetz then cited the infamous Project Veritas footage of CNN Director, Charlie Chester, admitting to using, "propaganda," to defame Gaetz.
Deep in the investigation into Governor Cuomo, Gaetz reported on Firebrand that Chris Cuomo's recent text messages "contradict Cuomo's testimony under oath," while Chris Cuomo and other media outlets described the reporter's relationship to the Gov. Cuomo investigation as, "peripheral," text messages with Melissa DeRosa show a very different reality.
"Please let me help with the prep," texted Chris Cuomo.
Gaetz concluded that the text messages alone are, "corruption," summarizing that a representative from the media was working with the Governor's Office of New York amid an investigation.
While the water still seems mercy for the future of Chris Cuomo and his brother, one thing is for certain: Congressman Gaetz sure has a knack for investigative journalism.
