The corporate media mocked Tucker Carlson for revealing that Joe Biden’s NSA spied on him.
But now Americans know the story is true and all hell is breaking loose.
And the Deep State tried to ruin Tucker Carlson with this illegal leak.
Axios confirmed Tucker Carlson’s assertions that the NSA monitored his emails and text messages.
Jonathan Swan reported that the NSA intercepted Carlson’s emails after Carlson began emailing with a U.S.-based Kremlin intermediary in hopes of setting up an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Tucker Carlson was talking to U.S.-based Kremlin intermediaries about setting up an interview with Vladimir Putin shortly before the Fox News host accused the National Security Agency of spying on him, sources familiar with the conversations tell Axios,” Swan reported.
Swan tried to get the NSA on record to confirm that the agency spied on Carlson, but the NSA refused to comment, which essentially confirmed the story.
“Axios submitted a request for comment to the NSA on Wednesday, asking whether the agency would also be willing to categorically deny that the NSA intercepted any of Carlson’s communications in the context of monitoring somebody he was talking to in his efforts to set up an interview with Putin,” Swan added.
Swan continued on, noting that if Carlson was communicating with someone the NSA spied on using a FISA warrant in the U.S. or if they were overseas where the NSA did not need a warrant to spy on them, Carlson’s identity – because Carlson is an American citizen – would be concealed.
The only way to obtain Carlson’s identity would be for an official to put in an unmasking request.
“In order to know that the texts and emails were Carlson’s, a U.S. government official would likely have to request his identity be unmasked, something that’s only permitted if the unmasking is necessary to understand the intelligence,” Swan continued.
But this is where the criminality comes into play.
It’s not illegal for the NSA to spy on Carlson’s emails if he communicated with an individual overseas or in the United States subject to a FISA warrant.
However, it is a very serious felony to leak Carlson’s identity and contents of his emails.
Americans learned this when the Deep State illegally leaked the fact that former Trump administration National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was picked up on a FISA warrant for the Russian ambassador to the Washington Post.
This illegal leak fueled the Russian collusion hoax that lasted for the first two-plus years of the Trump presidency.
Now Tucker Carlson appears to be the victim of a similar illegal leak.
And many Americans are now wondering if the NSA is operating as a Democrat Party opposition research Super PAC.
America’s largest and most powerful spy agency acting on behalf of one political party would be the actual attack on democracy that many in the media falsely claim Trump tried to engineer.
