Tucker Carlson often shares a lot of illuminating stories on his shows.
But this has got to be one of the most revealing yet.
The NSA has been spying on him personally and on his show’s private communications.
You can watch him discuss it 19 minutes into this video.
The fact that our government would spy on conservative media personalities like Carlson shows us how malevolent it really is.
The Biden Administration, along with the permanent Deep State, isn’t just persecuting average conservatives like us.
They’re coming for everyone with so-called ‘wrong’ opinions, no matter how famous or influential they are.
Monday, FNC host Tucker Carlson said the federal government was spying on him and those associated with his program, which Carlson said was revealed through a whistleblower within the government.
According to Carlson, the proof was the whistleblower revealed details of a story they had been working on that could have only been known through texts and emails.
Carlson said his team had filed a Freedom of Information Act request and called on the federal government to cease the behavior immediately.Breitbart News
It’s sick that an intelligence agency whose mission is to protect America’s interests would turn inward and spy on its own citizens for political reasons.
But that is our country now, and we all need to be vigilant of who we communicate with and what we tell them.
Particularly if our opinions go against the status quo.
Here’s the relevant parts of Tucker’s monologue.
Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the U.S. 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 take this show off the air. Now, that’s a shocking claim, and ordinarily we’d be skeptical of it. It’s illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It’s a crime. This isn’t a third-world country. Things like that shouldn’t happen here. But, unfortunately, they do — and in this case, they did.
The whistleblower, who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story we’re working on that could only have come directly from my texts and emails. There’s no other possible source for that information, period. The NSA captured it without our knowledge for political reasons. The Biden administration is spying on us. We’ve confirmed that.
This morning we filed a FOIA request, a Freedom of Information Act request, asking for all information the NSA and other agencies have gathered about this show. We did it mostly as formality. We contacted the press office at the FBI and the NSA. We don’t expect to hear much back. Only Congress can force transparency on the intelligence agencies — and they should, immediately. Spying on opposition journalists is incompatible with democracy. If they’re doing it to us — and again, they are definitely doing it to us — they’re almost certainly doing it to others. This is scary, and we need to stop it right away.Breitbart News
It’s pretty clear that someone with a conscience still works at the NSA, and hopefully there’s more than 1 person like that.
If Carlson hadn’t been informed, who knows what kind of trap they may have laid.
They may still be planning to force him off the air somehow – it’s impossible to tell right now.
Nevertheless, we salute his courage for bringing this to public attention.
And we hope that he’s able to continue his show long into the future.
But more seriously…
These three-letter agencies need to be held to account.
We can’t let them run wild like this, doing the Left favors and intimidating conservatives.
