Fox News’ Tucker Carlson made some strong allegations to the American public in previous days, in which he reveals that he and his team are being investigated by the NSA (National Security Agency).
The following day, the NSA issued a statement posted on Twitter in which they claim Carlson’s allegations are false. “Tucker Carlson has never been an intelligence target of the Agency, and the NSA has never had any plans to attempt to take his program off the air,” the statement reads.
The agency reiterated that its mission is international, not domestic. “With limited exceptions, NSA cannot investigate a citizen without a court order” that explicitly permits such action.
During the most recent episode of his show, Tucker Carlson charged against such a statement calling it “an infuriatingly dishonest statement.” In addition, he called the NSA lackeys of the intelligence community on CNN and MSNBC.
For the presenter, the allegation that his e-mails were read was not denied by the agency. The persecution he alleges, makes him feel in China, the term “Orwellian” is not enough to describe the situation, said Carlson.
“Now that the Biden administration has classified tens of millions of patriotic Americans, the kind who served in the Army and fly flags in front of their homes, as potential domestic terrorists, white supremacist saboteurs, we’re going to see a lot more of this kind of thing.”
The NSA is looking to cancel the show, says Tucker Carlson
Carlson claimed that Islamic terrorists are not the ones being targeted by the regime, but political protesters. These same FBI sources revealed that the Bureau knew about the orchestrated plan to frame former President Trump’s supporters and create chaos that could incriminate him and unleash a manhunt against Republican supporters.
Quickly, the host dropped the bombshell and confessed to the audience that a whistleblower at the NSA warned them [the show] that the agency is monitoring their electronic communications.
“[The NSA] plans to leak [communications] in an attempt to take this show off the air,” the host said.
To the host, the warning seemed implausible. “It’s not a Third World country. Things like that shouldn’t happen in the USA.” “It’s illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It’s a crime,” he added.
However, the warnings were fully believed by the team and by Carlson when the whistleblower gave them detailed information about a story they are working on information he was only able to get through his private emails and messages.
“There is no other possible source for that information. Period.” To him, they did it for political reasons. “The Biden administration is spying on us,” he said.
“Spying on opposition journalists is incompatible with democracy,” he said. “They are doing it to us and they are almost certainly doing it to others. This is scary and we must stop it immediately,” warned Carlson.
Without much hope, Carlson announced that he had filed a Freedom of Information Act request for all data collected by federal agents on him and his show.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki trivialized Carlson’s allegations recently, when asked about it by a reporter.
“Well, I think the NSA has, I think they know, everybody knows, everybody on this plane knows, I should say, it’s an entity that focuses on foreign threats and individuals who are trying to do us harm on foreign soil. So that’s their purview.”
