CNN put in another awkward position as Don Lemon is dragged into Jussie Smollett trial

Following reports that Chris Cuomo helped his brother with his high-profile sexual harassment scandal, another one of CNN's prime-time anchors faces controversy. 

Actor Jussie Smollett revealed during his testimony Monday that CNN anchor Don Lemon texted him during the early stages of the Chicago Police Department's investigation into his alleged hate crime hoax.

Smollett said Lemon texted him that the CPD did not believe Smollett's account of the incident, the New York Post reported . Lemon was relaying information he had gotten from sources in the CPD, according to the outlet.

Lemon did a segment on the Smollett trial during his show Monday night but did not comment on the new revelations.
