CNN Staffer Arrested on Charges of Abusing Underage Girls

The following article, CNN Staffer Arrested on Charges of Abusing Underage Girls, was first published on Flag And Cross.

CNN is having a very bad, no good, terrible week this week, and things are continuing to devolve at an accelerated rate over the weekend as well.

First and foremost, the network was forced to terminate the employment of their most-watched primetime host, Chris Cuomo, after it was revealed that he used his media resources to interfere with a series of sexual assault and harassment cases still pending against his brother, the disgraced former Governor of New York.

Not long after that news broke, the younger Cuomo was also the target of his own sexual harassment complaint by a former employee.

This drama broke out amid the backdrop of fellow CNN host Don Lemon’s ongoing sexual assault case, in which the host was said to have stuck his hands down his pants before forcing his fingers into the face of a bar-goer, all while verbally abusing the man regarding his sexual orientation.

Now, as if the network didn’t need any more problems of perversion, a staffer at the company has been arrested in connection with the trafficking of underage girls for sex.

Officials said a grand jury in Vermont indicted 44-year-old Stamford, Connecticut resident John Griffin of attempting to entice the girls to engage in sexual activity. He appeared in New Haven federal court via Zoom, where Judge Robert Spector said he would file an order requesting his transfer to Connecticut.

“According to the indictment, from April to July of 2020, Griffin utilized the messaging applications Kik and Google Hangouts to communicate with people purporting to be parents of minor daughters, conveying to them, among other ideas, that a ‘woman is a woman regardless of her age,’ and that women should be sexually subservient and inferior to men,” according to a Justice Department statement on the case.

The statement added:

On these communication platforms, Griffin sought to persuade parents to allow him to train their daughters to be sexually submissive. In June of 2020, Griffin advised a mother of 9- and 13-year-old daughters that the mother’s responsibility was to see that her older daughter was “trained properly.” Griffin later transferred over $3,000 to the mother for plane tickets so the mother and her 9-year-old daughter could fly from Nevada to Boston’s Logan airport. The mother and child flew to Boston in July of 2020, where Griffin picked them up in his Tesla and drove them to his Ludlow house. At the house, the daughter was directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity.

The indictment said he “attempted to entice two other children over the internet to engage in sexual activity.”

And, in a twist that could only come from such an abhorrent case, Griffin was formerly a producer on Chris Cuomo’s program.

CNN has said that Griffin is currently suspended pending an investigation into the matter.
