Tucker Carlson earned lots of lefty praise after criticizing Sidney Powell for refusing to share evidence on air.
He stated that his team pressed her and she refused to provide any proof of her claims.
Here is Carlson’s rant:
Tucker Carlson calls out Sidney Powell, saying he asked her for evidence to support her election fraud claims, but "she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests, polite requests, not a page."

There’s only one problem Tucker.
Not even the judge has seen the evidence yet.
Why should Powell hand it over to the mainstream media to twist it as they please?
Perhaps showing off true FOX News colors?
Tucker Carlson demanded that Sidney Powell present her evidence of Dominion’s electronic frauds on his nightly show rather than roll it out in a courtroom. She’s a great lawyer, he’s not. But he keeps his high paid FOX gig by following their script while feigning integrity. https://t.co/ACHqBuxwJY

Powell wasted no time firing back at his complaints:
In response to this @TuckerCarlson segment tonight, @SidneyPowell1 Powell tells me “Apparently Mr. Carlson missed the news conference today. I would continue to encourage him and all journalists to review all the materials we have provided so far… https://t.co/9FHZo8B7wM pic.twitter.com/0yY4Rvze0i

The dispute was covered by the Washington Examiner:
On his show Friday night, Carlson said that he had made “a lot of requests” for Powell to provide evidence for the Trump campaign’s allegations of widespread voter fraud but was given “not a page.”
“We took Sidney Powell seriously. We had no intention of fighting with her. We’ve always respected her work. We simply wanted to see the details. How could you not want to see them? So, we invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would’ve given her the whole hour. We would’ve given her the entire week, actually, and listened quietly the whole time at rapt attention. That’s a big story. But she never sent us any evidence, despite a lot of requests — polite requests. Not a page,” Carlson said.
After Powell told Carlson to stop contacting her, he said that his team “checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority,” who said that “Powell had never given them any evidence either.”
Carlson’s show followed a wild press conference featuring Powell and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani in which they laid out their claim of a “massive” vote-rigging scheme, laying much of the blame on Dominion Voting Systems.
“We have one very strong witness who has explained how it all works,” Powell said. “His affidavit is attached to the pleadings of Lin Wood and the lawsuit he filed in Georgia. … As soon as he saw multiple states shut down the voting on the night of the election, he knew the same thing was happening here.”
The article later describes Powell’s remark to Carlson:
In response to Carlson’s Thursday night segment, Powell told the Washington Examiner: “Apparently Mr. Carlson missed the news conference today. I would continue to encourage him and all journalists to review all the materials we have provided so far and conduct their own investigations. Evidence continues to pour in, but a 5 minute television hit is not my focus now. Collecting evidence and preparing the case are my top priorities.”
