This story is 2 years old... Not current news.

What I think is pertinent is who he worked for, funded by who? Why - THIS! " Newell was a top official at the Association for the Protection of All Children charity, which was funded in part by the United Nations."
It may be 2 years old but it's the first time I've seen it. Thank you, Ms. Attkisson.
