Tucker Carlson has revealed that a whistleblower told his show that the National Security Agency is spying on him and plotting to leak information in an effort to have him pulled off the air.
Carlson announced the shocking news on Monday evening’s episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight.
“The NSA is monitoring our electronic communications and is planning to leak them in an attempt to take this show off air,” Carlson said, admitting that it is a shocking claim and normally he would be skeptical of it, as it is illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens.
However, Carlson explained that the whistleblower even provided details about a story that the show was working on, which someone would only know from looking at his personal texts and emails.
Tucker Carlson says a whistleblower told him that he is being spied on by the NSA and that he filed a FOIA request for information:

“The Biden administration is spying on us. We have confirmed that,” he said.
The show has now filed a Freedom of Information Act request asking for all information that the NSA and other agencies have gathered about the show.
