Tucker Carlson recently went on air and released a bombshell report that stated the NSA is spying on him.
On his show Carlson reveled to viewers that a whistleblower within the U.S. government has notified him that the NSA has been spying on him.
The Whistleblower was even able to tell Tucker of an upcoming story that Tucker was working on too which confirmed his communications were being monitored.
The NSA who is usually quiet when their name is involved in shady activities has released a statement in response to Tucker.
The NSA in their statement denied Tucker’s claim that the agency has been spying on the Fox News Host.
But within their response they left a vague message which raised doubts about their denial of spying on the news host.

Did you notice in the second paragraph they said there is “limited exceptions” when it comes to the NSA spying on US citizens without a court order.
I trust Tucker more than the NSA 🤷♀️ https://t.co/vrMNJPyB4s

Reuters covered the story and had this to report:
The U.S. National Security Agency on Tuesday denied allegations by Fox News host Tucker Carlson that the agency is spying on him in an attempt to force him off the air.
“This allegation is untrue. Tucker Carlson has never been an intelligence target of the Agency and the NSA has never had any plans to try to take his program off the air,” the NSA said in a statement posted on Twitter.
Carlson, a conservative talk show commentator and strident critic of the Joe Biden administration, said on his show on Monday night that he “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.”

"We made a very straightforward claim: NSA has read my private emails without my permission… Tonight's statement from the NSA does not deny that instead it comes with this non-sequitur: Tucker Carlson has never been an intel target." pic.twitter.com/gGiP4HNtxw
