A senior CNN producer is now facing federal charges after he coerced a woman into allowing him to engage in sexual activity with her 9-year-old at his Vermont home, the Justice Dept. said Friday.
The FBI arrested John Griffin, a CNN employee from Connecticut, after a Vermont federal grand jury charged him with three counts of utilizing interstate commerce to abuse underage girls, the DOJ said in a media release. In one example, Griffin allegedly paid a mom $3,000 to bring her daughter from Nevada to Boston, where he picked them up and then drove to Vermont, the DOJ said. Griffin and the daughter had sexual activity in the house, as reported by the DOJ.
Griffin, in addition to engaging in sex with a minor, allegedly told a woman and her 14-year-old daughter to take their clothes off during a video chat in 2020, as reported by the DOJ. He also suggested to a mom of a 16-year-old to come to his Vermont house for a “little mother-daughter trip,” during which he would coerce the teenager for sex, the DOJ said.

As reported by the DOJ, Griffin made use of messaging apps like Google Hangout and Kik in order to contact the parents of underage girls.
“The charges against Mr. Griffin are very disturbing,” a CNN spokesperson said Saturday. “We only learned about his arrest yesterday and have suspended him.”
Griffin was employed with CNN since 2013 as a top producer, working on programs like “New Day” and at one point working with former political commentator Chris Cuomo, as reported in his LinkedIn profile.
Griffin could face 10 years in prison and a possible life sentence for each count, the DOJ has said.
This is yet more proof of the sickness that fills the upper elite of America and especially the Democratic party. We can only imagine that Griffin angered his fellow liberals at CNN and this is why he was allowed to be caught and punished for his alleged crimes. The mainstream media is obviously trying to cover this story up.
