Leah Remini Wants FBI Involvement in Potential Federal Investigation Into Scientology

Additionally, the second season of her Emmy-nominated A&E series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath will premiere on August 14th.

Actress, producer, and vocal anti-Scientology spokesperson Leah Remini said that because fellow Emmy nominee Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) is a member of the Church of Scientology, the two would not be allowed to speak to one another during September's Emmy Awards ceremony.

"I'm talking about the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the police, the Department of Justice, the IRS", the King of Queens alum told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday, August 9. "There's a thing in Scientology called 'acceptable truth.' It means you only say what's acceptable to the public".

The show she produces and stars in - "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath" - first focused on how the religion has torn apart families. "I made a decision to leave, '" she said of the success of Aftermath's first season.

"I'm just happy to be laughing again", she said. She goes on to explain that "there are no victims in Scientology".

The Model 3 is a 20 percent smaller vehicle than the Model S, which helps with using less battery to achieve the same distances. That vehicle is thought to come with an even more powerful battery that lift its dual motors from the Model S P100D.

If Leah Remini finds herself running into famous Church of Scientology members, she may not expect a warm hello.

And if you thought Leah was courageous for taking on Scientology after season one, just wait until you hear what she has planned for season two of the series. Because of this, Remini was asked what might happen if she were to run into Moss during September's awards ceremony.

The star says that, with her work on Season 2, she hopes to cause enough of a stir to warrant some kind of federal investigation into the church and its practices. It's often the people who leave the church who are the most critical of Scientology, so perhaps there is another side to the story? "In addition, she attempted to extort the Church by first demanding $500,000, followed by an additional $1 million, because the Church invoked its First Amendment right to respond to her false claims with the truth", the Church of Scientology said in a statement given to Us Weekly back in December 2016. L " eah Remini's 'reality" show Aftermath is really Leah Remini: After Money. During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show a year ago, the Kevin Can Wait star alleged that she had "been followed", but said her story "pales in comparison to what happened to other people" and "how people are bullied into silence".

The second season of Remini's docu-series will shine light on "all of the abusive practices of Scientology - sexual and physical abuse", the actress said. "I thank you for proving those theories wrong".
