What. The. F***.
The FBI seized CNN producer John Griffin’s electronic devices at least 17 MONTHS before he was arrested on charges of child sex trafficking in Vermont last week:

From Fox News:
FIRST ON FOX: A Nevada criminal complaint against a mom who allegedly pimped out her 9-year-old daughter to longtime CNN producer John Griffin in Vermont discloses disturbing new details about the sick arrangement.
It also reveals that authorities first became aware of Griffin’s depraved proclivities 18 months ago – yet the FBI didn’t arrest him until Friday in Connecticut for allegedly soliciting three mothers and their underage daughters for “training” on fetish sex.
And if they seized the devices on September 2, 2020, why didn’t they arrest him then? Was it because of the election?
After the woman’s arrest in August 2020, federal investigators seized “computers storage media, devices, phones, cameras, MicroSD cards, images, and video” from Griffin on Sept. 2, 2020, according to court documents.
The Feds didn’t respond to Fox News’ request for a comment:
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Vermont did not immediately return a request for comment on the reason for the delay in charging Griffin.
CNN claims they had no idea the devices were seized or that Griffin was under investigation:
“Prior to his arrest and indictment, we had no knowledge about the case,” a CNN spokesperson told Fox News Digital. The media outlet also said no CNN-owned devices issued to Griffin went missing or were reported lost in September 2020, when investigators said they seized some of his electronics.
Details from this complaint also allege Griffin was left alone with the 9-year-old girl after her mother was hospitalized due to a BDSM injury:

The complaint also says Griffin drives a Tesla, so, at least he’s worried about global warming?
