It comes after a DailyMail.com investigation in April last year uncovered serious questions about Rion’s background, finances, and how she obtained security clearance to be in the White House.
In fact, DailyMail.com disclosed that Rion changed her last name before applying for White House security clearance in 2019 and that until becoming a correspondent for the conservative network in May that year, she had no obvious source of income, despite a social media profile filled with designer dresses and vacations in upscale hotels.
Rion flouted the White House Correspondents’ Association repeatedly after it had OAN removed from the rotation of reporters allowed in the briefing room for Rion’s refusal to follow social distancing guidelines.
She was allowed back after Trump’s White House Secretary Stephanie Grisham invited her to the briefing room.
But she once again turned up at the back of the briefing room, defying the WHCA guidelines, and once again was invited by Trump to ask a question.
Little else about Rion is so straightforward, starting with her name.
She was born, in April 1990, and named not Chanel Rion but Chanel Nmi Dayn-Ryan. The unusual name was courtesy of one of her father’s multiple identities.
The 72-year-old property developer and lawyer was born Danny Preboth, the son of renowned Goddard, Kansas psychic Allene Cunningham.
But over the years he has used the names Christopher Preboth, Dan Ryan, Danford Nmi Dayn-Ryan, Michael David Ryan, David Michael Ryan, and most recently Dann O Ryan.
Though she has posted about her South Korean mother’s family history, Rion has never mentioned her psychic grandmother, who is said to have foreseen Oprah Winfrey’s success and Patty Hearst’s short imprisonment, and featured in countless TV and radio shows flaunting her supernatural skills.
Neither has Rion mentioned that her father has been accused in multiple lawsuits of making millions defrauding property investors in Texas under many of his different aliases.
