White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki appeared. to refuse to give a straight answer to the simple question of whether President Biden ordered his security services to actively spy on Fox Host Tucker Carlson.
As The Daily Wire reports:
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki dodged a question Tuesday about Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s explosive allegation that he is being spied on by the Biden administration.
“Tucker Carlson said that the NSA is spying on him,” a reporter told Psaki on Tuesday. “Is the administration aware of any espionage or listening efforts on U.S. citizens by the NSA, and is Tucker Carlson one of them?”
“Well, the NSA, as I think you’re well aware — I’m not sure everyone is aware — everyone on this plane is aware, I should say — is an entity that focuses on foreign threats and individuals who are trying — attempting to do us harm on foreign soil,” Psaki responded. “So, that is the — their purview. But beyond that, I would point you to the intelligence community.”
The question came in response to Carlson saying Monday night, “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.”
Psaki’s answer was strangely vague and evasive to what was a relatively simple question, which seems unusual coming from an administration that allegedly has nothing to hide.
