CNN Retracts Anthony Scaramucci, Russian Bank Story”

CNN is imposing strict new publishing restrictions for online articles involving Russian Federation after the network deleted a story and then issued a retraction late Friday, according to an internal email obtained by BuzzFeed News. "No exceptions", Barbieri added. CNN apologized to Scaramucci while also remarking that the story didn't meet their editorial standards. "Links to the story have been disabled".

The story was reported by CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank.

CNN's latest retraction comes just weeks after the network had to backtrack on an inaccurate report about James Comey.

The article alleged that "Senate investigators are examining the activities of a little-known $10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump's transition team four days before Trump's inauguration, a congressional source told CNN". The bank, Vnesheconombank, or VEB, oversees the fund, which has ties to several Trump advisers.

The report cited a meeting in January between RDIF head Kirill Dmitriev and Scaramucci, founder of SkyBridge Capital and a noted Trump supporter.

Scaramucci confirmed the meeting to CNN but said it was "cordial", and that there was "nothing there".

Countless people on social media declared the article "fake news" and called out CNN - saying there were factual inaccuracies. He told the network that he meant to "reach out to some people" to "help" Dmitriev in a way that abided by United States law.

Scaramucci tweeted on Saturday: '@CNN did the right thing.

"Classy move", tweeted Scaramucci in response. "Everyone makes mistakes. Moving on".

'It's ok. I did nothing wrong.

An unnamed source in the Buzzfeed story said CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker and the company's human resources chief were "directly involved" in an internal investigation into how the story was originally managed.
