Spying on opposition journalists.
That’s flagrantly anti-democratic and something you would see from an authoritarian regime.
But according to an NSA whistleblower, that’s exactly what is happening to Tucker Carlson.
Anyone with a clue knows the NSA has spied on American citizens for years.
However, spying on political adversaries is an eerie sign.
Who knows what the intentions are of the Biden Administration spying on opposition reporters?
Tucker claims it’s to have his show thrown off the air.
It’s a dark path they’re treading and dangerous for public figures who speak out against the regime.

The Post Millennial reported:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed Monday that the Biden administration is spying on him, after a whistleblower with the National Security Agency (NSA) delivered a shocking warning that the agency plans to leak confidential emails in an attempt to take his show off-air.
“Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the US 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 the show off the air,” Tucker Carlson said.
“Now that’s a shocking claim and ordinarily we’d be skeptical of it. It is illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It’s a crime. It’s not a third world country. Things like that should not happen in America, but unfortunately they do happen. And in this case they did happen,” Carlson continued.
“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,” Tucker explained. “There was no other possible source for that information period.” The primetime Fox News host went on to explain that the NSA, at the request of the Biden administration, is spying on his show for political reasons.
“The NSA captured that information without our knowledge and did it for political reasons. The Biden administration is spying on us. We have confirmed that this morning,” Tucker explained, firing back at the Biden administration’s activity.
Fox News filed an Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request Monday morning asking for all of the information that the NSA and other agencies have gathered about Tucker Carlson’s show. Fox News also contacted the press office at both NSA and the FBI, attempting to get to the bottom of the allegations.
“We don’t expect to hear much back, that’s the way that usually goes,” Tucker said, calling on Congress to take action.
If Congress doesn’t take action immediately for transparency from all sectors of the Intelligence community, expect things to get worse in the upcoming weeks.
And that’s a shot particularly thrown at Republicans.
Because we can’t honestly expect Congressional Democrats to investigate these matters for a conservative reporter.
But if no action is taken, we’re slipping further into resemblance of the Soviet Union.
Not the United States.
