Project Veritas: Zucker Coached Tapper to Badger Kellyanne Conway ‘to F-cking Nail Her’

A short clip released by Project Veritas Wednesday reveals how CNN president Jeff Zucker directed one of its top news personalities to relentlessly grill a Trump official during an interview.

Media Coordinator Christian Sierra divulged on tape that Zucker actually went into the control room while anchor Jake Tapper
was interviewing White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and told the executive producer to skip commercials and extend the seven minute interview to 25 minutes just to “f—king nail her.”

According to the staffer, Zucker excitedly coached Tapper “to keep going” during the interview and Tapper acquiesced.

“She was arguing back and forth with Tapper and Zucker told them in the ear piece to ‘keep going, keep going, keep going—don’t stop you guys,'” Sierra explained. In the interview, Tapper repeatedly accused President Trump of lying.

“I like the fact that you’re jamming her up” the Project Veritas journalist commented.

The CNN staffer seemed to have no problem that the segment had crossed the line from being a tough interview to maliciously badgering Conway.

“Because she deserves it!” Sierra exclaimed. “She’s lying all the time!” He added that it was an opportunity to “just f—ing nail her.”

Project Veritas released Part Two of their series on CNN’s “anti-Trump crusade” Tuesday, revealing how the network played favorites among the Democrat candidates on eve of debate.

Conservative muckraker James OKeefe said that he would release the full video for Part 3 on Thursday. In the meantime, he announced on Wednesday— that a GoFundMe for CNN whistleblower Cary Poarch has already raised $92,000 (now $94,940) with a goal of $100,000.

“It’s important to show these whistleblowers that we have their backs,” O’Keefe said.
