The Constitution does not guarantee the right to vote to anyone.
As host of “The Lead” on CNN, Jake Tapper spends his days bringing attention to some of the biggest political headlines. But Tapper has Washington intrigue on the brain, even when he’s not on-air.
His first novel, “The Hellfire Club,” is a political thriller that takes place during the days when Senator Joe McCarthy was carrying out his Communist “witch hunt.” Tapper talks to us about the inspiration for his foray into fiction, his background as a political cartoonist and which recent news stories have captured his full attention.
