Fox host Tucker Carlson made a shocking allegation against President Joe Biden during his Monday night show, accusing Biden of spying on him via the NSA.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“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 to take this show off the air,” Carlson said during his show. “The whistleblower, who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story that we are working on that could have only come directly from my texts and emails. There’s no other possible source for that information, period.”
“The NSA captured that information without our knowledge and did it for political reasons,” Carlson said. “The Biden administration is spying on us. We have confirmed that. This morning we filed a FOIA request — Freedom of Information Act request — asking for all information that the NSA and other agencies have gathered about this show. We did it mostly as a formality. We’ve also contacted the press office of both NSA and the FBI.”
Biden said late last month that he would not allow the Department of Justice to seize records from reporters and, if the story is true, it’s not clear how the NSA would have obtained Carlson’s records without obtaining a warrant.
Biden lied, he promised he wouldn’t do this. https://t.co/r5D9QYS8W1

No area of government tramples on our constitutional rights more than the intelligence community…And it's not even close.
Reduce their power. Cut their funding. Rein them in. https://t.co/Q8UAkB1JZS

It appears the Biden Administration may already be trampling the constitution along with the basic rights and protection afforded to all American citizens in order to harass and silence his political opponents.
