Tapper Caught With His Pants Down, Leaked Text Messages Prove He Meddled In Election
CNN’s Jake Tapper has been caught with his pants down, text messages have now been leaked that prove he tried to meddle in a Pennslyvania congressional race.
Earlier this week it was rumored that Tapper tried to keep war hero Sean Parrnell from running against Democrat Congressman Conor Lamb. Tapper denied getting involved in the race.
I just asked @jaketapper “Is it true you asked Sean Parnell to not run against Conor Lamb?”
He told me “nope”.
So there is his answer. https://t.co/Nh8LdVKmrD

Well, that wasn’t true and the text messages have come out to prove it.
Fox News obtained the twitter direct message that Tapper sent to Parnell’s account on November 8, 2019, after Parnell announced he’s running against Lamb.
“And best of luck in your race. For the record, I wasn’t trying to talk you out of running — I was trying to talk you into running in a safer R district! Lol,” Tapper wrote to Parnell.
A source familiar with the interactions between Tapper and Parnell said that there was communications via text message and direct message of Tapper wanting Parnell to run in another district.
Republicans feel that Tapper knew Parnell can beat Lamb and wonder what other races has Tapper influenced.
“Tapper is a former Democrat staffer in PA,” the senior national GOP campaign staffer said. “He is a former staffer for the Brady Campaign for Gun Control. Now he is a reporter at CNN who is supposedly unbiased, but he’s still a Democrat operative at heart. By attempting to bully a star Republican recruit out of his race, which would in effect help Democrat Conor Lamb and bolster Pelosi’s chances of keeping the House, Jake has officially given up on journalism in exchange for Democrat activism. If CNN actually cares about ethical journalism, Tapper will face consequences from them.”
