CNN blowhard and Prime Time host,  Chris Cuomo was publically accused of sexual harassment by former ABC executive producer Shelley Ross in The New York Times on Friday. She was spurred on by Cuomo’s defense of his brother amid sexual misconduct scandals. Cuomo now admits they had the interaction, but in a heated audio recording secretly captured by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, he denied such accusations and raged at the women making them and those digging into his past.

According to Ross’s account, “he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock.” He even bragged to her: “I can do this now that you’re no longer my boss.”

It was the kind of action he would grow indignant about in his denials to Cohen, some 15 years later.
