Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed on his show last night that the National Security Agency has been spying on him and his show, according to a whistleblower.
From The Post Millennial:
“Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the US government who reached out to warn us that the NSA, the National Security Agency, is monitoring our electronic communications and is planning to leak them in an attempt to take the show off the air,” Tucker Carlson said.
“Now that’s a shocking claim and ordinarily we’d be skeptical of it. It is illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It’s a crime. It’s not a third world country. Things like that should not happen in America, but unfortunately they do happen. And in this case they did happen,” Carlson continued.
“The whistleblower, who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story that we are working on that could have only come directly from my texts and emails,” Tucker explained. “There was no other possible source for that information period.”
Carlson went on to speculate that the NSA was following the instructions of the Biden administration:
“The NSA captured that information without our knowledge and did it for political reasons. The Biden administration is spying on us. We have confirmed that this morning,” Tucker explained, firing back at the Biden administration’s activity.
Carlson revealed that the show had filed a Freedom of Information Act request in an attempt to obtain all of the information the agency has gathered on the show. The show also reached out to the FBI and NSA in an attempt to gather more information:
“We don’t expect to hear much back, that’s the way that usually goes,” Tucker said, calling on Congress to take action.
“Only Congress can force transparency on the intelligence agencies and they should do that immediately,” Carlson added. “Spying on opposition. Journalists is incompatible with democracy. If they are doing it to us, and again, they are definitely doing it to us. They are almost certainly doing it to others. This is scary and we need to stop it right away.”
Tucker made the allegations at the end of a larger segment discussing the Biden administration’s focus on combating white supremacy, which they have claimed is one of the biggest threats to national security. Biden has never offered any credible evidence to support the claim.
