[Washington DC- Dec 29, 2021] Rick Saleeby, Producer for Jake Tapper, has resigned.
The update came from CNN’s Matt Dornic, Head of Strategic Communications at the
network, following Project Veritas’ December 15th report of alleged text messages and FaceTime calls of Saleeby’s sexual fantasies and solicitation of photos of underage girls.
As previously reported, Fairfax County police have taken some of Saleeby’s property as part of an investigation being conducted by detectives assigned to the Child Exploitation Squad of the Major Crimes Bureau. When confronted by a Project Veritas reporter early in the week outside of his court appearance, Saleeby refused to answer questions about his
official status with CNN.
