CNN’s Tapper Confirms Michael Cohen
Did Not Visit Russia As Report Claims

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Lucas Nolan

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2017 1:37:53 PM

CNN’s Jake Tapper confirmed today that the Michael Cohen named in the recently released and unverifiable BuzzFeed documents did not visit Russia as the documents claimed. Tapper confirmed on CNN news this morning that the man identified as Cohen in the unverified documents is not the same Michael Cohen who is President-elect Donald Trump’s special counsel. Trump’s Cohen has already denied the claim he visited Russia. (Snip) Tapper also said CNN had earlier declined to report on the allegations because they could not confirm the claims.

Is that supposed to get them off the hook for reporting those lies? It is just stunning the contortions Tapper goes through, even going so far to say that they had not reported this earlier because they couldn´t confirm the allegations. Of course the obvious huuuge question is why did they go ahead with it?? Tapper should suffer mightily for that journalistic malpractice. Everyone at CNN should be utterly and completely ashamed of themselves. If they had any credibility it is now gone. The behavior of those at Buzzfeed is not surprising but extremely dangerous.

Don´t you hate the fact CNN and other charlatans are bundled on your cable bill and a portion of your payment is received by them every month.

CNN seems to hate America, and does everything in it´s power to destroy anybody who loves God and country. Watching Jake the Fake is always a mistake.

How does Jake Tapper know who the report refers to? Hmmm...

Tapper has gone over to the dark side.
And as far as cable fees go, MSNBC made money in their afternoon lineup, even though few viewers wanted to watch Dylan Farrow, Joy Reid, Tore, and Al Sharpton.
They must have been embarrassed by the lineup.

CNN is in a fatal tail spin. They are now and have been the butt of a joke. Aside from progressive socialist zealots, who would want to work in such a corrupt organization. oy!

I have heard some reports, none of which I have verified, that Tapper is a liar out to get Trump anyway he can, and that Tapper has some questionable sexual relationships, very embarassing, but again which I have not verified, but am mentioning only to get it out there, so it can be examined by other, more responsible people. Perhaps, McCain can take this to the FBI to look at.

I understand Tapper´s mother used to walk the streets of Las Vegas, #8. At least that´s the story that´s going around in these parts.

Jake Tapper has destroyed his credibility by being party to this smear. I doubt he can come back from this.

CNN cannot walk these stories back. Even liberals should be upset that one of their prime news sources went over the edge.

Hey, Joke Tapper, you know it´s hard to put toothpaste back in a tube once you squeezed it out, don´t you? CNN has stepped over any reasonable responsibility to be a news agency. Ban them from the press room. Let them read wire copy. (If they can read).

U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said he spoke with President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday evening to discuss media leaks of a classified intelligence briefing on Russian hacking that Trump received last Friday. Clapper said in a statement that he does not believe the U.S. intelligence community leaked a private security document alleging Russian intelligence operatives have compromising information on Trump. "I emphasized that this document is not a U.S. Intelligence Community product and that I do not believe the leaks came from within the IC," Clapper said.

President Obama was not supposed to go out like this. Since the improbable election of Donald Trump, he has been trying to salvage his legacy. After all, what could be a greater repudiation of a progressive Democrat’s presidency than Americans choosing Trump as your successor? Obama didn’t expect this. He even admitted at one point during the campaign that if Hillary Clinton didn’t win, he would “consider it a personal insult—an insult to my legacy.” So lately he’s been scrambling, not just to ram through last-minute regulations and executive orders but to convince the country that his presidency has been

Megyn Kelly´s blockbuster jump from Fox to NBC hasn´t wowed her viewers as much as her new bosses at 30 Rock. According to a new poll, in fact, Fox viewers don´t plan to shift stations to catch her new shows on the network news giant. A survey from Morning Consult found that more Republican viewers, in fact, plan to reject TV antagonist of President-elect Trump on NBC platforms. "Republicans and Trump voters are not following Fox News´ former star anchor to her new home base at NBC News," said the poll analysis. It added: Megyn Kelly is headed to NBC News, an

Donald Trump refused to take a question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta today, labeling Acosta´s employer as "fake news." Since then, mainstream media and celebrities are hyperventilating over Trump as if he bears the same viciously totalitarian impulses as, say, Fidel Castro -- and that Trump is SCARY and GOING TO GET THEM. (Snip) Yet back then, Obama´s Communications Director Anita Dunn gave an interview to the New York Times during which she proclaimed Obama´s administration had adopted as policy that Fox News was fake news. Did the New York Times fear freedom of the press had been eradicated? No, the

The search for motives in 26-year-old Esteban Santiago’s shooting spree at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport continues, but the authorities say they cannot find any ties to the Islamic State (ISIS) or other international terrorist organizations. Miami Herald reports that, despite rumors to the contrary, nothing in Santiago’s social media history indicates he was “an Islamic convert inspired by terrorist organizations.” According to the Herald’s law enforcement source, the airport shooting was clearly a planned attack, but Santiago appears to have planned it on his own, for reasons known currently only to himself. By now it is well-known that Santiago approached the

The White House slammed President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday for comparing U.S. intelligence agencies to Nazi Germany, saying the comparison was “deeply misguided.” “As President Obama has said many times, the men and women of our intelligence community are patriots,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. He said it was misguided of anyone “at any level” to question the motives of U.S. intelligence operatives. Mr. Trump questioned whether intelligence officials were responsible for the leak of an unverified document with damaging allegations about his activities in Russia, invoking Nazi Germany. “I think it was disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned

The former British spy who allegedly compiled a ´dirty´ dossier smearing Donald Trump has been revealed. Ex-MI6 man Christopher Steele is reported to be the source of a salacious file alleging the Kremlin had compromising evidence about Mr Trump´s sex life, that it planned to use to blackmail him. Mr Trump has today called the dossier, alleged to have been handed to US Senator John McCain by a former British ambassador, ´fake´ and ´phony´ and Moscow has dismissed the claims as ´utter nonsense.´ Mr Steele, 52, is the director of a private security and investigations firm called Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd, run out

Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday´s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump´s ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person.

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday criticized President-elect Donald Trump for his shouting match with a CNN reporter. (Snip) "President-elect Trump today told CNN´s Jim Acosta the his organization amounts to fake news. CNN´s exclusive reporting on the Russian matter was separate and distinctly different from the document dump executed by an online news property," Smith said during his closing monologue.

So the website BuzzFeed decided to publish a series of memos that have been floating around for months alleging all kinds of terrible things about Donald Trump. Some of those terrible allegations have to do with efforts to influence the American elections and Trump. Some of them have to do with Trump’s personal sexual conduct. Readers of this newspaper know well not to include me among Trump’s supporters. But the scurrilousness of what BuzzFeed has done here is so beyond the bounds of what is even remotely acceptable it should compel even those most outraged by Trump’s political excesses to come to
