Several new and highly disturbing details have surfaced regarding veteran CNN producer who once worked “shoulder to shoulder” with Chris Cuomo, whom the network fired last week, regarding his alleged attempts to lure very young girls to his home so he could provide them with “sexual subservience training.”
A grand jury in Vermont indicted John Griffin, a 44-year-old Stamford, Connecticut resident, on charges of attempting to entice young girls into sexual activity last week. He worked on the CNN show “New Day.” He has been charged with three counts that he used a “facility of interstate commerce to abuse underage girls.”
“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,” a press release from the Department of Justice, US Attorney’s Office, District of Vermont, read.
“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,’” the statement continued.
“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,” it continued.
Now, new details have emerged.
Griffin allegedly used a BDSM site to make contact with parents who would then provide their daughters to him to “train” in “spanking” and “c**k worship.” According to the federal indictment, he attempted to lure at least four girls, aged 16, 14, 13, and nine years old.
He allegedly told the parents things like women were “inferior to men,” that there was a “natural wanton whore at the core of ANY female.”
Red State adds:
“When handled appropriately, a woman is a woman regardless of her age,” Griffin told the mother. “One of the big lies of this society is that women are delicate innocent angels and they are in actuality, naturally, the dirtiest sluts possible, in EVERY metric,” he said.
Griffin allegedly gave the mother $3,350 to bring her nine-year-old child to him at his Vermont ski house where she “was directed to engage in and did engage in illegal sexual activity,” prosecutors allege.
In another conversation with a father of a 14-year-old girl, Griffin said he’d trained a seven-year-old, and that his daughter would make a “good candidate” for his type of schooling, that he would tell her and her mother “to remove their clothing and touch each other.”
He is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday. He is facing three counts of using a vehicle of interstate commerce to lure underage girls into having unlawful sexual activity.
“The indictment also includes specific allegations that Griffin attempted to entice two other children over the internet to engage in sexual activity,” said the DoJ in a press release.
“On each count, Griffin faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years of imprisonment and a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The indictment includes a notice that states the federal government intends to seek the forfeiture of Griffin’s Ludlow house, his Tesla, a Mercedes, and other property that was used in the commission of the charged offenses,” said the department’s release.
