Following last week's exposing of a CNN producer embroiled in a pedophilia scandal, the investigateCNN twitter account that the story was posted from has been suspended.

On Wednesday, Project Veritas published explicit texts and videos of a CNN producer, later revealed to be Rick Saleeby, a producer on "The Lead with Jake Tapper."

Project Veritas published the story on a Twitter account called investigateCNN, which was soon after banned by the platform, according to Robby Starbuck.

One text exchange featured Saleeby telling the source how his fiancé’s daughter was "wearing very closely cut bottoms at the pool," before graphically describing how he could see the outline of her genitals.

He also allegedly solicited sexually explicit photos of the source’s underage daughter.

The messages and videos were allegedly obtained by Janine Banani, a woman who was involved in a relationship with the CNN producer for over a decade. Banani is a case manager for human trafficking victims, as well as those of domestic violence and sexual assault.

The source claimed to have obtained the information for police, but contacted Project Veritas when she was worried that action might not be taken.

She told the outlet that she "felt disgusted" and felt the need to come forward because "these people with power seem to get away with it."

"I feel disgusted. I feel dirty and I reply (to the texts) you know, it's, it's your girl's kid like your girlfriend's kid. Usually every time we text, it's always about him wanting to see me and a stepdaughter together."

She then provided a recording in which the producer allegedly said, "...after I'm done having my mouth on her, I'm going to walk up and put my crotch very close to her face," he said referring to the minor, "...slowly unzip my zipper and just guide her head a little closer and I'm just going to have her kiss the head and I'm going to put her hand on it so she can feel what the hard flesh feels like."

The source added, "He sent me a text saying, 'I love that she is getting hot. I want to taste how wet she makes you,' and he's talking about who his second daughter, who's 14 years old, even about my daughter."

The naming of Saleeby closely follows the arrest of former CNN employee, John Griffin, who has  been charged with three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity.
