CNN host Don Lemon didn’t just find himself in the center of the Jussie Smollett trial he is also being accused of sexual misconduct.
Dustin Hice has long claimed that Lemon sexually assaulted him at a bar in Long Island, New York back in 2018 and the case is finally headed to court in 2022.
Lemon recently criticized his old “friend” Chri Cuomo however it seems the host has skeletons in his own closet.
“They’re a network rife with predators and perverts,” Hice told Fox News. “Lemon will have to testify under oath in the near future, but it’s good to see that there’s finally some accountability happening.”
When the initial calims were made CNN stood by Lemon very similiar to how they treated Chris Cuomo until the New York attorney general’s office released proof that Cuomo was engaged in unethical behavior.
“This is who they are,” Hice said of CNN. “They’re a predator-protecting machine, they slander and smear victims with impunity. They’ve tried to grind me down, they’ve attempted to intimidate witnesses in my case, they’ve released confidential information about me in attempt to doxx me. They are complicit. This is who they are.”
CNN has not commented on Hice’s latests claim but Lemon did attack him through his attorney Caroline j. Polisi.
“In response to Mr. Hice’s baseless allegations, I encourage people to review the public filings, which show that Mr. Hice’s claims have been steadily eroding when they have been exposed to the civil litigation process,” she said.
“Mr. Hice’s fanciful and salacious allegations against Mr. Lemon have collapsed of their own weight,” Polisi added. “Unlike Mr. Hice, Mr. Lemon has litigated, and will continue to litigate this case in the courtroom, not the press. We look forward to the approaching trial so he can finally put this case behind him.”
Additionally a senior CNN staffer has been arrested for allegedly trying to entice young girls to engage in illegal sexual activity.
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.
Karma is really starting to come around to bite CNN.
