Appearing with Maria Bartiromo, Tucker Carlson said “Yesterday I learned, that, and this is going to come out soon, that NSA, leaked the contents of my e-mail to journalists in an effort to discredit me.”
“I know this because I got a call from one saying ‘oh, this is what your e-mail was about,” he continued.
“It is not in any way a figment of my imagination,” he added. “It’s confirmed, it’s true. They are not allowed to spy on American citizens, they are, and I think more ominously they are using information they gather to put leverage to threaten opposition journalists, people who criticize Biden administration happening to me right now, I think shocking I don’t think we should put up with it in a free country.”
