Rick Saleeby resigned earlier this month from the role of old producer of ‘The Lead with Jake Tapper’
A second producer of the American network CNN is reportedly under criminal investigation for “sexual abuse of minors”.
Local Fairfax County police confirmed to Fox News that they have launched an investigation into “serious sexual offenses involving potential minors” and added that detectives against the crime of child exploitation are investigating Rick Saleeby, the network’s senior producer. CNN.
“We will be transparent about our findings, the safety of the victims, and the integrity of the investigation is of paramount importance to us,” Fairfax police said.
A CNN spokesman said when asked about the case: “The person in question no longer works for CNN.”
But the development comes shortly after another producer of the well-known pro-government left-wing network, John Griffin, is facing federal sex crime charges, with children involved among the victims.
Following Saleeby’s departure from CNN, Griffin was fired following his arrest for inciting minors to have sex.
A CNN spokesman said of the pedophile scandal among executives: “The allegations against Griffin are deeply serious. “Following his arrest, we ended his employment.”
The pedophile reportedly approached a woman for $ 30,000 for a “mother-daughter weekend,” with the minor and was arrested for abusing a 9-year-old, as well as inciting other children to have sex.
The investigations against Saleeby seem to be related to the reports of investigative journalists of the “Project Veritas” network. Fairfax police confirmed to Fox News Digital that they were in communication with the Project Veritas network and potential victims as part of the investigation.
The spokesman said “numerous objects were seized from the suspect’s apartment in Virginia” but did not provide further details on the timing of the investigation.
