[WASHINGTON, D.C. – Dec. 17, 2021]
There have been many requests from other journalists and media outlets to name the subject in Wednesday’s tragic story involving a CNN producer.
After ensuring the family involved is safe, Project Veritas has made the decision to release the name, Rick Saleeby.
Saleeby is a producer on The Lead with Jake Tapper.
Project Veritas reached out to CNN multiple times for comment, but as of this writing, they are yet to respond.
The mother of the children involved in this story sent Project Veritas the following heartfelt note. We have redacted some parts, to further protect their identity, and request everyone give them privacy during this difficult time:
“I wanted to reach out to sincerely thank you again. I am very grateful toward you guys and everything you’ve done for me and my children. Our world has just been completely flipped upside down, but none of that matters. We are all safe. I’m hoping, praying, and pushing for charges to be brought against him, so he can never do this to another child/family again.
I want the public and any predators to know, without a shadow of a doubt, that I will go to the absolute ends of the earth to protect my babies. And I am tremendously grateful that you guys have saved us all from him.
Despite the hardships ahead, I am going to continue to sit with these feelings of gratitude toward you guys and the woman who provided you with the information. Gratitude will get us through to the other side of all this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and Merry Christmas. ❤️”
