Leah Remini Wants the Federal Bureau of Investigation to 'Raid' the Church of Scientology

Leah Remini Hopes Season Two Of Her Anti-Scientology Docuseries Sparks A Federal Investigation Into The Faith It's Going To Get Really Awkward If Leah Remini Bumps Into Elisabeth Moss At The Emmys
Freda Brock | 11 August, 2017, 01:42

The 47-year-old actress, a former Scientologist, has openly criticized the controversial church on her new A&E reality show "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath".

"I'm talking about the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the police, the Department of Justice, the IRS", she explains.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Remini admitted that she's surprised by the visceral reaction the first season of Aftermath received, and how many people actually chose to leave Scientology based on what they saw on the show.

"When I was just acting, of course it was something you always wanted", she's quoted as saying. "And me knowing that, I wouldn't put her in the awkward position". I don't hold anything against Elisabeth Moss other than she's continuing to support a group that is abusive and destroying families.... Her star rose again when she turned her views on Scientology into a TV show.

And if you thought Leah was fearless for taking on Scientology after season one, just wait until you hear what she has planned for season two of the series.

Elisabeth is nominated for her work in The Handmaid's Tale.

Ellen Thompson, the wife of TVLine's Dave Nemetz, tweeted that Moss "left the room" when Remini accepted her award on Friday night.

As long as the power supply from Entergy remains steady, the system will be able to handle a "typical rainfall", Landrieu said. Henderson Lewis, Jr., announced that all schools in the parish will be closed out of precaution.

The church adds that Remini was "expelled" years ago "for unethical conduct", along with other "anti-Scientologists in her program".

'I spent most of my life being told the world outside Scientology would fail me, that I would fail, and that without it I wasn't worth a whole lot, ' Leah said as she accepted her award.

As you likely know, through Aftermath Remini has profiled numerous ex-Scientologists who've been allegedly mistreated and targeted by the Church. While the first installment of the show focused on the emotional disconnection the Church enforced, the second chapter will zoom in on "all of the abusive practices of Scientology - sexual abuse and physical abuse".

Do you think Leah Remini's documentary series will provide enough evidence to incite a federal investigation into the Church of Scientology?

More specifically, Remini hopes that through the pair's in-depth research of Scientology and its "abusive practices", the US federal government will eventually step in and conduct a thorough investigation of the religion. No wonder Leah says the show is "rewarding, but very taxing".

The Church of Scientology, which names celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Juliette Lewis and Elisabeth Moss among its ranks, has strongly denied the integrity of Remini's series. "I thank you for proving those theories wrong".
