CNN reporter denies passing on information from former US ambassador and ‘lover’ Lord Darroch of Britain
- Michelle Kosinski, 46, blamed leaks in Trump’s own circle for her exclusivity
- Trump ordered an investigation into whether Lord Darroch has leaked information
- Mother said: ‘There is a lot wrong and not true with what is being reported’
The glamorous reporter accused of having an affair with the former US ambassador to Great Britain angrily denies giving him sensitive information.
Michelle Kosinski, 46, blamed leaks within Donald Trump’s own circle for her string of firsts while she was a CNN 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 lot wrong and just not true with what is being reported.
‘No such leak was found during a so-called leak investigation. For all those mentioned stories, this means that ‘sensitive’ information did not come from the former ambassador.

“It sounds like I had good sources and was doing my job.”
Clearly, she denies any affair.
Trump ordered an investigation into whether Lord Darroch had leaked information to Ms. Kosinski during his tenure in Washington when she enjoyed a series of exclusive offers, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo planning a top-secret trip to North Korea in 2018.
But she insisted, ‘The Pompeo information (all came) from Trump’s own orbit. Every fucking 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 has always been very tough, ambitious and relentlessly looking for a story. But she is also a lot of fun and knows how to have fun.
She’s incredibly glamorous and beautiful and has always had men chasing her. When she gave up her CNN appearance, everyone assumed it was because she was married to a rich man … and wanted to enjoy life. ‘
The investigation ordered by Mr. Trump released Lord Darroch, 66, of any wrongdoing.
The colleague was not at his home in London or at his second home in Cornwall yesterday.
