CNN contributor Ryan Lizza has been suspended from the cable news network shortly after The New Yorker gave him the axe for what the magazine called “improper sexual conduct.”

“We have just learned of the New Yorker’s decision,” A CNN spokesperson told Deadline, as reporters contacted the network said in a statement. “Ryan Lizza will not appear on CNN while we look into this matter.”

Lizza has been The New Yorker’s Washington correspondent since 2007. He’s best known these days as the journalist to whom Anthony Scaramucci claimed shortly after he was named White House Communications Director, that then White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon engages in autofellatio, and other interesting observations. With that interview, Scaramucci became the shortest tenured White House Communications Director in U.S. history.

Announcing it was parting ways with Lizza, New Yorker said: “The New Yorker recently learned that Ryan Lizza engaged in what we believe was improper sexual conduct. We have reviewed the matter and, as a result, have severed ties with Lizza. Due to a request for privacy, we are not commenting further.” WaPo reported it first.
