'Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath' returns for a second series on August 15th.
Actress Leah Remini is calling for a federal investigation into the Church of Scientology, ahead of the second series of her documentary about the religion.
The 47 year old star was discussing the imminent broadcast of her series ‘Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath’, and she revealed that her objective in the documentary was to expose “all of the abusive practices of Scientology” including “sexual abuse and physical abuse”, and ultimately garner enough evidence to launch a full-blown federal investigation.
“I’m talking about the FBI, the police, the Department of Justice, the IRS,” Remini told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday, August 9th. “If the FBI ever want to get anywhere, all they would need to do is a raid. Everybody who’s ever gone to Scientology has folders and everything you’ve ever said is contained in those folders.”
Katie Holmes and Leah Remini are both no longer members of Scientology
Despite the fact that former power couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorced three years ago, it seems that the pair still know how to rile each other up. As controversy about Scientology continues to hit the headlines, it appears Tom is angry that ex-wife Katie has reached out to the Scientology enemy.

With Leah Rimini in the Church’s bad books following her penning a tell-all book, Trouble Maker, about her time as a Scientologist, the Mission Impossible actor has reacted badly to Katie apologising to Remini for the way she has been treated in the past.
Following her expose of her relationship with Scientology last week, Remini said that Holmes' apology statement nearly reduced her to tears.
Following her explosive interview last week about the Church of Scientology, Leah Remini has revealed that Katie Holmes’ apology for causing her any distress in the past “almost makes me want to cry” in a new TV appearance.
Remini’s sensational appearance on ‘20/20’ on Friday was one of the biggest news items of the week, and it prompted an on-air statement of regret from Holmes – which came via a written note and not from a face-to-face interview with Holmes herself – that read: “I regret having upset Leah in the past, and wish her only the best in the future.”

While on TV discussing her new autobiography, she claimed that the Church used her to attempt to recruit Jennifer Lopez.
Ahead of the release of her new memoir next week about her career and her experience with Scientology, actress Leah Remini has given an explosive new interview about the religion.
Remini, most famous for her role as Carrie Heffernan on CBS sitcom ‘The King of Queens’ from 1998 to 2007, was speaking to ABC’s ‘20/20’ on Friday night (October 30th) when she made a series of claims about the religion exploiting her and then dumping her when she had outlived her usefulness.
“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself,” she asserted. “You are a person who is anti the aims and goals of Scientology, you are evil.”
