Chris Cuomo’s CNN producer charged with attempting to ‘sexually train’ minors at Ludlow ski getaway

The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont announced today that John Griffin, 44, of Stamford, Connecticut was arrested today by the Federal Bureau of Investigation after a federal grand jury in Vermont charged Griffin with three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity. Griffin will have his initial appearance later today in federal court in New Haven, 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. 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 also includes specific allegations that Griffin attempted to entice two other children over the internet to engage in sexual activity. In April of 2020, Griffin proposed to engage in a “virtual training session” over a video chat that would include him instructing the mother and her 14-year-old daughter to remove their clothing and touch each other at his direction. In June of 2020, Griffin proposed to a purported mother of a 16-year-old daughter that she take a “little mother-daughter trip” to Griffin’s Ludlow ski house for sexual training involving the child.

The United States Attorney’s Office emphasizes that an indictment contains allegations only and that Griffin remains presumed innocent until and unless he is convicted of a crime. 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.

Acting United States Attorney Jonathan A. Ophardt commended the investigatory efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the vital assistance of both the Ludlow, Vermont Police Department and the Henderson, Nevada Police Department.

  1. Uniparty sex games…….here is an example of how subversive tactics are being done within our state.

    Uniparty left, we need to decriminalize sex workers because it’s racist not to do it. We need to help minorities become drug dealers, give them financial incentives. We need drag queen story hour for our preschoolers. We need to teach elementary students how to have sex. We need videos of interfamilial sex widespread on every smart phone and computer, unfettered.

    Uniparty right – mostly says nothing. And when you suggest we should tax pornography, the kind that shows mom sleeping with step-son, step sister and brother having sex, dad sleeping with step-daughter….it’s “we can’t raise taxes!” When we know taxes stifle growth….THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT!

    Meanwhile parents and teachers are wondering how this came about? Why do we have this? What the hell is going on?

    The KGB intentionally goes into countries and confuses the population about their sexuality. Seems crazy huh? Let me ask you….do you think it’s crazy now? Probably one of the easiest most diabolical and evil think to ever happen. They are using our own selfish, lustful desires against us. It’s like swimming down stream with Satan……..ruining families, destroying lives, on purpose, intentionally with full knowledge of their actions.

    Welcome to the New World Order.

  2. Given the liberal, socialist, democratic lack of morality it’s no surprise this happened in Vermont. And he’s an employee of CNN. Between Tobin pleasuring himself on a conference call, the Commo scandal, and now this, you have to wonder why anyone would watch this network. I will be really surprised if this story is reported on VTDigger. Is it any wonder that CNN has such bad ratings, right down there at the bottom with MSNBC.

  3. Will the “Mother” be charged? Or was she perhaps a “trafficker” herself and “acting” as a Mom? Either way she needs a sentence as well! If she was in fact the Mother, it’s sickening!!

  4. Gee, I wonder why he picked Vermont as his prey-ground??? If he thought that our permissive justice system would offer him protections, he obviously overlooked the US Attorney’s office’s established priority (thanks to our previous US Attorney, Christina Nolan) of aggressively investigating human trafficking.
    Aren’t we Vermonters just beaming with pride over the reputation the Party-in power here has promoted to the pervert and opioid trafficking community from downcountry…that anything goes in Vermont.

  5. Will this be the last we hear of the other high profile pedophiles that claim Vermont as their home address, all involved in pay to play in DC, and the secret conduit Vermont has always been for child and adult sex trafficking?
