Jacob Paul "Jake" Tapper (born March 12, 1969) is a reporter for CNN. Critics refer to him as Fake Yapper.

Trump-Russia

Main article: Russian collusion hoax

Sometime before January 6, 2017, DNI James Clapper briefed opposition research talking points, manufactured by the Clinton campaign in the Steele dossier, to Jake Tapper of CNN. The salacious innuendo lacked verification and a " news hook" for CNN to report, so Clapper instructed FBI Director James Comey to brief President-elect Trump on the allegations. Clapper immediately leaked the fact Trump had been briefed, creating the "news hook" CNN was looking for to publicize the existence of the Steele dossier. Clapper was rewarded with a job at CNN afterward.[1][2][3]
