Last week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson (Tucker Carlson) made big news. Carlson claimed that a whistleblower in the US intelligence community had warned him that his text messages had been intercepted. As the left-wing media detached its collective spine from the joints, trying to defend the honor of the lie institutions by kissing the fat and acne of these institutions, hilarity followed.
This is my post about the event Tucker Carlson’s espionage allegations match our knowledge of the out-of-control intelligence communityThe National Security Agency responded, but when they responded, their response read as if they were guilty, but they were afraid of being caught by the American people. Considering the slander of President Trump by the CIA and the National Security Agency, I don’t know why this is happening.Look The NSA’s response to Tucker Carlson’s allegations shows what they are hiding more details.
Carlson appeared in Maria Battiromo’s Morning with Maria Show announced And more details.
“Yesterday, I learned-and this will come out soon-the National Security Agency leaked the contents of my email to reporters in order to discredit me. I knew it was because I received a call from one of them, saying, ‘ Oh, this is the content of your email,'” Carlson said.
“So, this is by no means my imagination. It has been confirmed that this is true,” he continued, adding that the Biden administration is trying to obtain “leverage” to threaten “opposition reporters.”
“It’s happening to me now, I think it’s shocking, I don’t think we should endure it in a free country,” he said.
Be the host Maria Battiromo When asked if it is impossible for others to see these emails, Carlson said that the only other person is his executive producer.
He added that just before his show aired on Tuesday, he received a call from a reporter who replied the email to him.
“It’s impossible for other people to know. Then yesterday I received another call before the broadcast, say at 7:15, from a reporter I know and like. There are not many left, but I do like this person. He Repeated the content of my email to me and he got it because the NSA leaked it, so yes, it’s completely true,” Carlson said.
The National Security Agency declined to comment.
As I said in my original post on this topic, Carlson would lose too much and no benefit by fabricating a story that inevitably turns out to be wrong. However, the National Security Agency and its associates have every incentive to lie about things they know will not be exposed due to secrecy and lies.
Soon after the new Carlson allegations occurred, the intelligence community seemed to try to get out of the story in a roundabout way, admitting that Carlson had been under surveillance, but rotating it to make it appear legal.
New news: Shortly before accusing the US National Security Agency of monitoring him, Tucker Carlson was discussing arranging an interview with Putin with a middleman in the US Kremlin. U.S. government officials did not learn about this outreach event… but this is where the details become blurred. https://t.co/5kbjMJnQ2r

This is a story from Axios.
A source familiar with the conversation told Axios that shortly before the Fox News host accused the National Security Agency of spying on him, Tucker Carlson was discussing arranging an interview with Vladimir Putin with a middleman in the U.S. Kremlin.
Why is it important: These sources said that US government officials were aware of Carlson’s efforts to ensure that Putin was interviewed.Carlson learned that the government was aware of his outreach activities-this was the basis for his extraordinary allegations, which were subsequently rare Publicly deny The National Security Agency said he was the target.
This story is obviously the damage control that the intelligence community (I assume the National Security Agency) spread into the story through this non-public “exclusive news” to Jonathan Swan. However, it is not without its singularities.
It is not clear why Carlson, Or his sources might think that such outreach activities may be the basis of NSA surveillance or the motivation to cancel his show.
In the first case, someone in the IC leaked the information to Carlson along with the apparent motive. IC did not mention the connection with Putin until today.
What’s next: Experts say that there are several possible situations—including legal situations—that could apply.
- The first—and most unlikely—scenario is that the U.S. government submits a request to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Tribunal to monitor Carlson to protect national security.
- A more reasonable situation is that one of the people Carlsen talked with as an intermediary to help him get Putin’s interview was monitored as a foreign agent.
- In this case, Carlson’s emails or text messages may be accidentally collected as part of monitoring this person, but Carlson’s identity will be masked in any intelligence reports.
- In order to know that the texts and emails belonged to Carlson, US government officials may have to request his identity to be revealed, which is only allowed if the information needs to be revealed to understand the intelligence.
In the third case, The interception may not involve Carlson’s communications. The US government regularly monitors the communications of people in Putin’s orbit, who may have been discussing the details of Carlson’s request for interviews.
- But in this case, Carlson’s identity will also be covered up in the report as part of his protection as a U.S. citizen, and will only be allowed if a U.S. government official requests that his identity be disclosed for intelligence purposes. Public identity. It is unclear why this is necessary.
These scenes are inconsistent with what Carlson claims. A legal disclosure will not result in his email being provided to another reporter.
It seems that we are back in the bad past of the Obama era. The political enemies of the regime became targets of espionage, and the results of espionage were used to harm or discredit them.
