CNN reporter denies passing on information from Britain’s former US ambassador and ‘lover’ Lord Darroch

  • Michelle Kosinski, 46, blamed leaks within Trump’s own circle for her exclusives 
  • Trump ordered an investigation into whether Lord Darroch leaked information 
  • Mother said: ‘There is a great deal wrong and false with what is being reported’

The glamorous reporter accused of having an affair with Britain’s former US ambassador has furiously denied giving him sensitive information.

Michelle Kosinski, 46, blamed leaks within Donald Trump’s own circle for her series of scoops while she was CNN’s White House correspondent.

In an angry rebuttal on Twitter last night, the mother-of-two – who now hosts her own podcast – said: ‘There is a great deal wrong and simply false with what is being reported.

‘A so-called leak investigation found no such leaking. Meaning for all those stories listed that ‘sensitive’ information did not come from the former ambassador.

‘Sounds like I had some good sources and did my job.’

It is understood she denies any affair.

Mr Trump ordered an investigation into whether Lord Darroch had leaked information to Ms Kosinski during his term in Washington when she enjoyed a string of exclusives, including that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was planning a top-secret trip to North Korea in 2018. 

But she insisted: ‘The Pompeo information all (came) from inside Trump’s own orbit. Every damn time.’

Ms Kosinski enjoyed a long career as a reporter for NBC before moving to CNN in 2014. She met her husband, investment banker-turned-philanthropist Kimbell Duncan, 55, while working in London between 2010 and 2014.

A former colleague said: ‘She’s always been very tough, very ambitious and ruthless in pursuit of a story. But she’s also great fun and knows how to enjoy herself. 

‘She’s incredibly glamorous and pretty and has always had men pursuing her. When she gave up her CNN gig everyone assumed it was because she was married to a wealthy guy… and wanted to enjoy life.’

The probe ordered by Mr Trump absolved Lord Darroch, 66, of any wrongdoing. 

The peer was not at his home in London or second home in Cornwall yesterday.
