    CNN's Jake Tapper on Tuesday weighed in on the Trump-Kim summit arguing that other presidents did not meet with North Korean leaders to avoid giving their dictatorships “prestige.” “It's not as if other presidents couldn't have done this,” Tapper said of Trump's historic meeting with the North Korean leader. “It's that they didn't want to.” Tapper, the host of CNN shows “The Lead” and “State of the Union,” prefaced his comments that past presidents decided not to meet for direct talks with North Korea because “the concern was, you don't want to give North Korea that kind of prestige.” “You...

    CNN's Jake Tapper reacts to a poll that shows a "shockingly high" percentage of Americans believe then-President Obama ordered surveillance on then-candidate Donald Trump's presidential campaign. The ABC/Washington Post poll shows 32% of those polled think Obama intentionally spied on Trump while 58% disagree. "This is the time for you, the public, to demand evidence from your leaders and from your media, even if you already agree with the politics of the person on your TV," Tapper said Wednesday night. TAPPER, "This all began, of course, on March 4th after a long frustrating week for the president. At the end...

    RUSH: There’s another home run column today at the Tablet by Lee Smith. It’s very long. It prints out to 10 pages. I’m not gonna have a chance to read through all of it, but he leads with what I thought was the most scandalous event at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday night, and it wasn’t the comedienne. The most scandalous thing that happened was the award that they gave to CNN. Now, just to review this, James Clapper was the Director of National Intelligence for Obama. Without going through an entire timeline, I’m gonna tell you what...

  • House panel accuses James Clapper of ‘inconsistent testimony’ in Russia probe

    The House Intelligence Committee's report on Russian activities during the 2016 election accuses former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper of providing “inconsistent testimony” about his contact with the media. Clapper, now a CNN analyst, allegedly changed his story about his interactions with journalists about an opposition research dossier on then-President-elect Trump. The former spy chief initially said he did not speak with journalists about a secret intelligence community assessment containing the information, before later admitting he discussed the dossier with CNN reporter Jake Tapper and possibly others, the report said.

    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted to congressional investigators that he spoke with CNN about the Trump dossier close to the time the outlet published a scoop, according to a House Intelligence Committee report released Friday. The report revealed that Clapper, during an interview with House Intelligence Committee investigators on July 17, 2017, first “flatly denied” that he had discussed with journalists the dossier or any other intelligence related to the 2016 election. But during that same interview, he later admitted discussing the dossier with CNN’s Jake Tapper and possibly other journalists. “Clapper’s discussion with Tapper took place...

    Buried within a newly declassified congressional report on Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections is a shocking revelation: former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper not only leaked information about the infamous Steele dossier and high-level government briefings about it to CNN, he also may have lied to Congress about the matter. In one of the findings within the 253-page report, the House intelligence committee wrote that Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNN’s Jake Tapper, lied to Congress about the leak, and was rewarded with a CNN contract a few...

    Jake Tapper appeared on the Ellen show on Tuesday and guess what the main topic of discussion was? Do I really need to spell it out? Unless you have been in a state of hibernation for the past few years then you definitely know they talked about the one who lives rent-free in the minds of liberals -- President Donald Trump. Tapper was obviously irked by Trump bringing up the subject of fake news.

    Before you watch this insanity, which made the social media rounds this week, may I remind you that Senator Barack Obama met privately with, and complimented, this man at an event coordinated by the Congressional Black Caucus -- a disgrace that was deliberately hidden from voters until Obama was safely out of office?  May I also remind you that numerous CBC members have courted this man's support, including the current deputy DNC Chairman, who hasn't been truthful about the nature of that relationship?  As I've previously argued, "minister" Louis Farrakhan is the Left's version of David Duke, in that...

    WASHINGTON The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election. It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White...

    CNN’s Jake Tapper reported Wednesday morning that intelligence officials looked into allegations from an explosive unsubstantiated memo that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen visited Prague in late August to meet with Russian officials, and found that it was a different Michael Cohen who visited the city. Cohen strongly denied the charges Tuesday, saying that he had never been to Prague. The Washingtonian reported that two sources at the University of Southern California confirmed that Cohen was in Los Angeles at the time he was supposed to have been in Europe. Tapper seemingly confirmed Cohen’s story. “People tried to run that down...

    During The Lead With Jake Tapper, former State Department spokeswoman and Obama communications director under President Obama Jen Psaki accused President Trump's new nickname for the former President, "Cheatin' Obama" of having racial undertones. President Trump, who has become known for branding opponents in both political parties with nicknames, finally unveiled a nickname for his predecessor. When pointing to a Rasmussen poll showing that he had a 50 percent approval rating, the President said that his approval rating was higher than that of “Cheatin’ Obama” at the same time during his presidency. Host Jake Tapper asked Psaki, now a CNN...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders on Friday invoked President Donald Trump's name multiple times in response to a question about what advice he can give progressive leaders who have a tough time condemning noted anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. Several House Democrats have come under fire in the last week for their association with Farrakhan, including Democratic National Committee vice chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), who recently earned a "Four Pinocchios" rating from the Washington Post Fact Checker concerning his interactions with the controversial Nation of Islam leader. Sanders sat down with CNN's Jake Tapper at the South by Southwest conference in Austin,...

    Embattled Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said he had provided "amazing leadership" to his department on Sunday, drawing disbelief from CNN host Jake Tapper. Tapper pressed Israel during a nearly half-hour interview about the response of his department before and during the Stoneman Douglas high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead. Israel announced Thursday that school resource officer Scot Peterson had been suspended and decided to retire rather than be terminated after learning Peterson failed to enter the school during the massacre and engage the shooter. Israel also defended the conduct of his department in response to...
