As CNN's chief Washington correspondent, Jake Tapper regularly hosts congressional representatives and members of the Trump Administration for intense, live interviews. Now, Tapper has turned his attention toward another politically divisive era in Washington: the 1950s. Tapper's first novel "The Hellfire Club" is a thriller filled with McCarthy-era paranoia, conspiracy theories and secret societies. Tapper joins Forum to discuss his work on CNN, covering President Trump and the parallels between our current political situation and the one he writes about in "The Hellfire Club."

Guests:
Jake Tapper,
anchor and chief Washington correspondent, CNN; host, The Lead With Jake Tapper and The State of the Union; author, "The Hellfire Club"
