The staffer said he should “train” their daughters sexually, according to an indictment from the US Attorney of Vermont.

Griffin allegedly got a mother of two daughters to bring a girl to his Ludlow ski house in June 2020.

According to the indictment, Griffin had said it was the mother’s responsibility to see that her 13-year-old daughter was “trained properly”.

Griffin allegedly sent the woman $3,000 for plane tickets to fly from Nevada to Logan Airport in Boston, where he picked them up to take them to Ludlow, according to court papers.

Authorities claim the girl was “directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity.”

Griffin attempted to seduce two other children over the internet, according to the indictment, and allegedly favored apps like Kik and Google Hangout.

Also in June 2020, Griffin allegedly told another mother of a 16-year-old girl to take a “little mother-daughter trip” to the staffer’s ski house for sexual training.

FBI agents arrested Griffin on Friday after a federal grand jury in Vermont charged him with three counts of attempting to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity. 

WORKING WITH CHRIS CUOMO

Griffin claims to have worked “shoulder-to-shoulder” with Chris Cuomo on his LinkedIn profile.

The duo worked together during Cuomo’s time as a co-anchor for A New Day.

Griffin, who has children of his own, worked at CNN for nearly nine years. He’s also worked for ABC News, Fox News and CBS.

The ski house used in the alleged crimes may be taken by the government, according to the indictment. This also includes vehicles Griffin used to allegedly drive the victims to his property. 

If convicted, Griffin faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years in jail on each count.
