Tucker Carlson claimed the Biden administration spied on him to try and force his show off the air.
The corporate media screamed that Carlson was a liar.
But all hell broke loose when the NSA made this confession about spying on Tucker Carlson.
The Biden administration trashing civil liberties and the Constitution reached a new low when the NSA admitted that Deep State officials unmasked Tucker Carlson after Carlson tried to set up an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Record reported:
An examination by the spy agency, prompted by congressional inquiries, found that the Fox News host’s communications were not targeted — as the NSA has previously stated publicly — nor intercepted through so-called “incidental collection,” where the U.S. government sometimes obtains the emails or phone calls of Americans in contact with a foreign target under surveillance, according to these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Correspondence between intelligence agencies and oversight authorities are conducted through classified means.
Instead, the nation’s top electronic spy agency found that Carlson was mentioned in communications between third parties and his name was subsequently revealed through “unmasking,” a process in which relevant government officials can request the identities of American citizens in intelligence reports to be divulged provided there is an official reason, such as helping them make sense of the intelligence documents they are reviewing.
“For the NSA to unmask Tucker Carlson or any journalist attempting to secure a newsworthy interview is entirely unacceptable and raises serious questions about their activities as well as their original denial, which was wildly misleading,” a Fox News statement read.
But the NSA’s admission raised more questions than it answered.
Axios confirmed the NSA had Carlson’s texts and emails, and Carlson stated that a reporter read back his communications word for word.
The NSA’s statement did not explain how journalists came into possession of Carlson’s electronic communications.
While it is legal for someone in the government to unmask Carlson, it is not legal to leak Carlson’s name to the media.
Leaking Carlson’s name is a serious crime that carries a ten-year prison sentence.
Unmasking became a major scandal in the Trump administration when someone in the Deep State leaked the fact that the NSA picked up Trump’s incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn on a FISA warrant talking to the Russian ambassador.
Flynn did nothing wrong, but the corporate media and Democrats used the leak to kick the Russian collusion hoax into overdrive.
Now the NSA is rerunning that playbook to try and smear Tucker Carlson.
And it looks like the Deep State is running a misdirection play to distract the American people from this face.
