(RoyalPatriot.com )- It was reported last week that yet another CNN producer is under investigation for crimes against minors.
A criminal probe into Rick Saleeby, the former senior producer on Jake Tapper’s “The Lead,” was launched by police in Fairfax County, Virginia last week.
According to the Fairfax County Police Department, Saleeby is being investigated for “serious allegations involving potential juvenile victims.” Detectives from the Child Exploitation Squad of the Major Crimes Bureau are leading the investigation.
The probe was opened after the release of an explosive video by Project Veritas that revealed disturbing allegations made by a woman who claimed Saleeby had solicited nude photos of her 15-year-old daughter.
After the Project Veritas video hit, Saleeby was forced to resign from CNN.
In early December, disgraced former CNN host Chris Cuomo’s former producer John Griffin was indicted by a federal grand jury for attempting to lure mothers with minor daughters to his Vermont ski house to engage in sexual activity and sex “training sessions.”
Griffin has pleaded not guilty to the charges. If found guilty, he faces ten years to life in prison.
When the news of the investigation into Saleeby broke, CNN was quick to point out that Saleeby no longer worked at the network.
Yes, he resigned because of the Project Veritas exposé.
But Saleeby, like Griffin, was still a producer at CNN when he committed these alleged acts.
Between Chris Cuomo getting fired for sexual harassment and these two pervert producers, it begs the question, what in the world is going on at CNN?
Is there something in the water? Or is “pervert” a requirement for employment at the low-rated network?
The details on the scope of the investigation into Saleeby are currently unknown.
In a statement to Project Veritas, Fairfax County Police would only confirm that investigators were looking into allegations involving potential juvenile victims, but the statement did not mention Saleeby by name.
Fairfax police told Project Veritas they would “eventually be transparent” about their findings, but at this stage of the investigation, “safeguarding the personal privacy and safety of victims and witnesses” are of “paramount importance.”
