A former ABC journalist who went missing after the FBI raided his home and confiscated his laptop pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges.

As reported last year, Emmy-winning investigative journalist James Meek went missing after the FBI raided his Virginia home and confiscated classified information from his laptop in April 2022.

James Gordon Meek, 52, went missing after the FBI raided his Arlington penthouse apartment, Rolling Stone reported.

Meek produces a Hulu documentary”3212 Unedited” detailing the Pentagon’s 2017 shutdown over US special forces deaths in Niger.

The “blitzkrieg” was carried out after a search warrant was approved by a federal judge in the Eastern District Court of Virginia, Rolling Stone reported.

“If agents get hold of Meek’s records, the move will need to be approved by Deputy US Attorney General Lisa Monaco.” The New York Post reported.

Meek pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges on Friday.

ABC News reported:

A former investigative journalist for ABC News pleaded guilty Friday to federal child pornography charges.

James Gordon Meek, 53, of Arlington, Virginia, admitted in US District Court in Alexandria that he illegally possessed and transported child pornography. He covered national security issues for the network until he stepped down last year.

Court papers show the investigation began when the FBI received a tip from Dropbox about videos showing child sexual abuse on accounts linked to Meek.

As part of the plea agreement, Meek admitted to using the iPhone to exchange child pornography, including videos showing the sexual abuse of babies, during chat sessions with two other people.

An FBI affidavit shows that agents found dozens of child pornographic images and videos when they searched Meek’s home last year, dating back to at least 2014.
