It appears that the Trump administration should be grateful that CNN’s Jake Tapper is out there doing his part in exonerating then fro RussiaGate. On his grand tour around the liberal media, Jake has had nothing but semantics to offer as proof of wrong doing. Like one of Mr. Tapper’s heroes, Bill Clinton, Jake is good at parsing words. that could keep the lawsuits down as well.
