Jake Tapper Blasts State Department for Repeatedly Lying to Reporters

TheTower: The State Department repeatedly lied to reporters and the American people, CNN’s Jake Tapper said on his program The Lead on Thursday, the latest riposte in the ongoing scandal over doctored recordings of State Department briefings.

Tapper’s segment described three lies told by the State Department in relation to the Obama administration’s negotiations with Iran.

In February 2013, months before Hassan Rouhani was elected president of Iran, Fox News reporter James Rosen asked then-State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland, if reports of secret talks between the United States and Iran were true. “With regard to the kind of thing that you’re talking about on a government-to-government level, no,” Nuland responded. This turned out not to be true.

That December, shortly after world powers reached an interim nuclear deal with Iran and it became clear that the United States had reached understandings with Iran before Rouhani’s election, Rosen recalled the answer he received in February, and pressed Nuland’s successor Jen Psaki if the State Department had lied. “James, I think there are times where diplomacy needs privacy in order to progress. This is a good example of that,” Psaki answered, essentially admitting that Nuland had lied.

  1. Tapper is cherry picking.
    With all the deceit, deception and lies coming from the obama administration why focus on just 3 obvious less damaging lies?
    There are hundreds to choose from, including obstruction of justice by the President’s office, Department of Justice, IRS, ATF, EPA, Homeland security, NSA, etc.

  2. CNN hasn’t been shy in promoting all the other lies from Obama for the last eight years, why are these different?

  3. Disingenuous pieces of shit like Jake have known the score since day one! They are well aware that these two administrations have been nothing but lies from stem to stern and that didn’t stop them from being wholly complicit in their enabling and promotion of Jeramiah Wright´s God-Damn-America-hating, jug-eared, dog-eating, Gay-obsessed, Lying-Denying, Treasury-looting, economy-wrecking, Bullgarian-speaking, process-circumventing, lawless-autocratic, productivity-obstructing, Al-Qaeda-appeasing, Benghazi-bullshitting, phoney-baloney, plastic-banana republic, Tranny-Commie-loving Marxist Muzlim Mallard. So spare me the self-righteousness Tapper! You just want to position yerself for the coming come-upance with a little face-saving!
    Go lick a hot one Jake and that goes double for yer boot-licking “news” network!

  4. What’s up with Tapper? About once a month he wanders off the reservation and exposes democrat hypocrisy, deception, corruption, scandals, crimes, and treason. A VERY rich target environment. I don’t get it. Better stay outta Fort Marcy Park there Bucko.

  5. Cato, because State just holed the Clinton campaign below the waterline with the IG report torpedo. State’s credibility must be brought into question to blunt the IG report’s effects. This hit was ordered by Hillary, and Tapper gets to pose as non-partisan while he does her dirty work. Neat trick.
