Criminal investigation currently underway into CNN pedophile producer Rick Saleeby
01/01/2022 // Ethan Huff // Views

A Project Veritas exposé has exposed Rick Saleeby, a former senior producer for CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper," as being under investigation for suspected pedophilia.

According to credible allegations, Saleeby solicited sexually explicit photos of an underage girl. And Project Veritas got ahold of the evidence, prompting Saleeby to resign earlier this month.

CNN confirmed Saleeby's resignation, and the investigation has now garnered international attention.

The Fairfax County Police Department (FCPD) in Virginia confirmed that a criminal investigation has been launched "into serious allegations involving potential juvenile victims."

"Detective assigned to the Child Exploitation Squad of the Major Crimes Bureau are leading this investigation," Fox News further reported.

"While we will eventually be transparent about our findings, safeguarding the personal privacy and safety of victims and witnesses as well as maintaining the integrity of our criminal investigation are of paramount importance," reads a statement from a Fairfax County Police spokesman.

It was further confirmed by the FCPD that it has been in contact with Project Veritas about Saleeby's victims. "Numerous items from the subject's Virginia home" were also seized as part of the investigation.

Saleeby fantasized about molesting his fiancé's daughter, texts show

Among the evidence obtained by Project Veritas were text messages involving sexually explicit images of an underage girl, as well as a conversation Saleeby apparently had about wanting to molest the young daughter of his fiancé.


In one of the text exchanges, Saleeby told the source how his fiancé's daughter was "wearing very closely cut bottoms at the pool" before graphically describing how he could see the outline of her genitals.

Janine Banani, who was involved in a relationship with Saleeby for more than a decade, told Project Veritas that Saleeby solicited photos of their own daughter as well.

"... after I'm done having my mouth on her, I'm going to walk up and put my crotch very close to her face," Saleeby said in one audio recording that Banani provided.

In another recording, Saleeby engaged in even more explicit speech about what he wanted his own daughter to do to himself.

"... slowly unzip my zipper and just guide her head a little closer and I'm just going to have her kiss the head and I'm going to put her hand on it so she can feel what the hard flesh feels like."

Keep in mind that Saleeby is not the first but the second CNN producer in less than a month to be under criminal investigation for this type of perversion against minors.

The other is former CNN producer John Griffin, who was arrested and indicted for abusing underage girls. Griffin produced a show for CNN senior political analyst John Avlon, who was arrested by the FBI and charged by a federal grand jury in Vermont.

Tapper, as you may recall, threatened Donald Trump's staffers last November to either concede his election "loss" to Joe Biden or get blacklisted.

Tapper apparently thought he held some kind of sway over the future of their political careers. Now, he is likely singing a much different tune based on these latest developments.

"We are coming for all you media talking heads," wrote one commenter at Natural News. "There will be justice."

"To be blacklisted by sacks of s*** like Biden, Harris, Tapper, and the rest of the lefties would be a badge of honor," wrote another.

"Jake, nothing brings a people together like shared suffering and persecution, and, Jake, I doubt you realize this, but living as an unprincipled coward is far worse than anything you can throw at us."
