CNN just can’t seem to catch a break this week, as two of their most notable names are back in the headlines for their unacceptable sexual behavior.
First up was Chris Cuomo, whose family is all too familiar with scandal of a sexual nature.

Hice believes that his case could be back in court within months, likely in January of 2022.
