CNN anchor Chris Cuomo addressed his indefinite suspension from the network, saying it "hurts" and is "embarrassing" but that he "understands it."
Cuomo said Wednesday he appreciates why some people "feel the way they do about what I did." In helping his brother, the former governor of New York, he said "the last thing I ever wanted to do was compromise any of my colleagues and do anything but help," according to journalist Jeremy Barr.
"I know they have a process, that they think this is important," Cuomo said. "I respect that process. So I'm not gonna talk about this any more than that."

Cuomo: "I know they have a process that they think this is important. I respect that process. So I'm not gonna talk about this anymore than that."
Cuomo was suspended Tuesday following the New York attorney general's investigation into Cuomo's involvement in the sexual harassment scandal of his brother Andrew. While Chris Cuomo had admitted to advising his brother about how to handle the accusations, the documents that came to light Monday showed a "greater level of involvement than [CNN] previously knew."
