All day the leftists in the media have been mocking and denigrating Tucker Carlson for saying the NSA was monitoring and leaking his communications. But SURPRISE SURPRISE he was right, and telling the truth.
Because of course he was, you morons.
BREAKING: The NSA was absolutely spying on Tucker Carlson and clearly leaked their findings to Jonathan Swan of Axios.
Think about the last 10-20 texts and emails you sent. You in trouble if those get out?
Now do you see how dangerous things are becoming? https://t.co/Jbw462wZah

Axios says they couldn’t get the NSA to admit to anything, because they are the NSA. But they know, and you know, and I know, and Tucker knows, and the NSA knows, that this CONFIRMS THAT THEY MONITORED HIS PRIVATE EMAILS AND LEAKED THEM.
Tucker Carlson was talking to U.S.-based Kremlin intermediaries about setting up an interview with Vladimir Putin shortly before the Fox News host accused the National Security Agency of spying on him, sources familiar with the conversations tell Axios.
Why it matters: Those sources said U.S. government officials learned about Carlson’s efforts to secure the Putin interview. Carlson learned that the government was aware of his outreach — and that’s the basis of his extraordinary accusation, followed by a rare public denial by the NSA that he had been targeted.
The NSA’s denial is textbook misdirection. “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.”
Yeah saying he’s not “a target” is just how politically motivated people say things. “Our target is Putin, we can’t help it if it that encompasses you!” is what they mean.
Between the lines: The NSA’s public statement didn’t directly deny that any Carlson communications had been swept up by the agency.
- Axios submitted a request for comment to the NSA on Wednesday, asking whether the agency would also be willing to categorically deny that the NSA intercepted any of Carlson’s communications in the context of monitoring somebody he was talking to in his efforts to set up an interview with Putin.
- An NSA spokesperson declined to comment and referred Axios back to the agency’s earlier, carefully worded, statement. In other words, the NSA is denying the targeting of Carlson but is not denying that his communications were incidentally collected.
To put it in simpler terms:
So yes, the NSA was absolutely spying on Tucker. He sought an interview with a high profile world leader and our corrupt intel community intercepted his private communications, unmasked him, and leaked it to the media.

Anyway, we all know what happens next.
Watch libs go from Tucker wasn’t spied on to oh well he wanted to interview Putin so he should have been spied on.
