CNN’s Tapper: Press ‘Needs To Be Unified’ To Get Answers From Hillary

CNN host Jake Tapper declared “the press corps needs to be unified” to get answers on the “legitimate” questions regarding Hillary Clinton’s relationship with Sidney Blumenthal on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”

After hearing Hillary’s response to questioning about her relationship with Sidney Blumenthal and whether it would continue if she was elected president, which he characterized as “an attempt at deflection,” he stated “This is why a press gaggle, they can be great things but they really — the press corps needs to be unified in these events.” He then recounted a time where he asked President Obama to answer the question of the person who had asked a question before him.

Tapper continued, “People need to stick together. The Blumenthal question is a legitimate question. What is this information he was sending to Hillary? Where did it come from? And how seriously did she take it when she was forwarding it around?”
