Rick Saleeby, Jake Tapper’s former producer at CNN, has resigned and is now under investigation by law enforcement after text messages of his were made public by Project Veritas. The texts showed him soliciting photos of underaged girls and describing in graphic detail what he wanted to do sexually with his fiancee’s teen daughter.
NBC News reported:
The man, Rick Saleeby, a former senior producer at the network, is being investigated by detectives of the child exploitation unit of the Fairfax County Police Department’s Major Crimes Bureau, the police department confirmed in a statement Thursday. A spokesman for the police department said he was not able to provide additional details.
“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,” the statement said.
One of the worst parts of this story is that the woman who blew the whistle on Saleeby, Janine Bonnani, a former sex worker and victim of human trafficking, had taken her evidence to the police, and they refused to do anything about it. After Project Veritas got involved, suddenly it’s worth investigating.
“I met [Saleeby] about ten years ago when I was being trafficked,” said Bonnani. “I was on BackPage and he called to buy sex from me and I went to the casino and that’s how everything started. I feel he thinks he can confide in me with everything because of my past and everything I’ve been through, but it’s the exact opposite. … it has infuriated me.”
Saleeby’s fiancé wrote a letter to Project Veritas, thanking them for bringing the texts to her attention and reporting that she left Saleeby and protected her daughter from him.

He worked for Jake Tapped Out.
I think I'll order a Pizza while I read this article.
Wasn’t the hooker working for herself? Now just being a ho is “being trafficked”?
The whole thing is seedy.
Nice network CNN has become.
RE: Nice network CNN has become.
Maybe it was always like this, we just didn’t know it before.
Aren’t libtards from fake news wonderful? 🤪
When Pizzagate broke out, CNN was first in line to call it all a terrible hoax. Well it wasn’t.
I think this is about the third week in a row I’ve read this story. Was this a one-time resignation, or is he on some kind of recurring plan?
“Rick Saleeby, Jake Tapper’s former producer at CNN, has resigned”
So all of the producers and none of the onscreen “talent”. Hmmm
The FCC may want to have it’s own investigation on CNN a lot of shady dealings there.
