The 17-month delay between a search warrant that secured longtime CNN producer John Griffin’s devices in Vermont and an arrest on child trafficking charges shows that feds "don’t give a da-- about these kind of cases," according to a former FBI agent turned whistleblower who has taken the bureau to task for years.

"He obviously is a sexual predator, and has gone from grooming children into actually ‘capturing’ them," said Jane Turner, a former FBI special agent who blew the whistle on the FBI’s mishandling of child sex crime cases in North Dakota’s Native American reservations. "Very, very dangerous offender." 


The evidence against Griffin allegedly includes drone video he took showing a "completely naked 9-year-old girl" standing next to him in his underwear, according to court filings.

"When confronted with this video during an interview by FBI agents, Griffin’s first response was merely to suggest he was not looking at the naked girl, despite that she was standing so close to him to be touching," the prosecutor’s pretrial detention memo reads.

Turner has long been critical of the FBI’s handling of child trafficking cases. In one instance that came up in her whistleblowing case, she forced investigators to reopen the case against a suspected child rapist after the 2-year-old victim’s injuries sustained in a sexual assault were mislabeled as stemming from a "motor vehicle accident," according to her attorneys. The suspect went on to plead guilty.

The allegations against Griffin were serious enough in her view that they should have immediately been investigated by a crack team of agents.



If someone is standing next to a naked 9 year old and you're in your underwear...You got some explaining to do.
