If the nebulous "they" wanted him off the air, they'd fake a mugging, carjacking, or robbery gone-bad and would simply kill him.

So somehow Tucker found out about the NSA intercepting communications while monitoring those foreign contacts and purposely blew it all up out of proportion. For ratings.

Meanwhile, he has basically told those Russian contacts that tour NSA is monitoring them, specifically.

...and using RT as a source, which IS an intelligence asset for the SVRU.

Maybe you should just STFU and see what they're going to question you about, Treason Weasel.

Hire a good expensive lawyer. And do exactly what they say.

Or, the exact opposite of what a maga attitude demands.

Well...that explains why the Russians were answering back.

Even they aren't otherwise that dumb.

The thing is, Tucker was the first one to blow the lid off this "story". He said a buddy told him about details in an email that only him and his wife (what a stupid detail, because the recipient of the email should have also been included) would know. He also said that these emails were neither incriminating towards him nor controversial. Swan reported that a source told him that the emails were him trying to get in touch with intermediaries of Putin who happened to have been the US at the time (US citizens? Foreign Agents that were just visiting? Swan made it a point that this wasn't clear). Tucker goes on television tonight tearing down all intelligence agencies where he could have *just* shared the emails at the center of this that he insisted were neither incriminating nor controversial!

foo monkey: Why wouldn't a popular and credible news anchor attempt to score an interview with a foreign head of state?


See, that's not a problem. Even Tucker alluded to the fact that the email(s) have nothing that is wrong in them. Which is why I'm confused about the fact that Tucker doesn't want to release the emails, instead he just wants to rag on the intelligence community who allegedly saw them.

Like, no shiat Tuck, if you were emailing folks connected to Putin and your emails where looked at by the NSA, we'd totally understand. Don't get mad about it though, if I was emailing people connected to Putin, I would have at least had the foresight to expect as much. Instead, you have to make this a big thing about being spied on because your a conservative who badly needs to be persecuted.

2021-07-08 12:30:25 AM  
I'm sure it was his assistant that burned him or maybe whatever russian "intermediary" they thought they were talking to.   anyhow being a trust fund douche doesn't buy common sense or intelligence.

All while not telling us who exactly it was he was reaching out to thinking they could get him in touch with Putin.

El Oh El.

On his show Wednesday night, Carlson stated that the NSA wanted to attack his loyalty to America and embarrass him.

Tuck. You are INCAPABLE of being embarrassed. Your detractors already can't think any lower of you, and your supporters will bend over backwards making excuses for you, just like how Don Jr. shared emails of him speaking with the Russian Government about Clinton and nothing ever came of it.

Isn't he the one that Fox successfully defended by stating that he couldn't be held responsible for anything he said because no one in their right mind would believe him?

theflatline: So Tucker claims to be a journalist, but his court cases claim he is not one.


We joke of schadenboners all the time, but I might literally pop a stiffy if the courts use that precedent to compel him to name some names. That wouldn't just be relevant to this case, but would echo across any RW media that uses this kind of BS excuse.
