“Spying on opposition journalists is incompatible with democracy. If they are doing it to us … they are almost certainly doing it to others.”
On Monday night, Carlson explained that an NSA whistleblower alerted him to the spying:
Yesterday we heard from a whistleblower in the 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 the show off the air.
Now that’s a shocking claim and ordinarily, we’d be skeptical of it. It is illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It’s a crime. It’s not a third-world country. Things like that should not happen in America.
But unfortunately, they do happen and in this case, they did happen.
The whistleblower, who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story that we are working on that could have only come directly from my texts and emails. There’s no other possible source for that information. Period.
The NSA captured that information without our knowledge and did it for political reasons.
The Biden administration is spying on us. We have confirmed that. This morning we filed an FOIA request, a Freedom of Information Act request, asking for all information that the NSA and other agencies have gathered about this show.
We did it mostly as a formality. We’ve also contacted the press office at both the NSA and the FBI. We don’t expect to hear much back. That’s the way it usually goes.
Only Congress can force transparency on the intelligence agencies and they should do that immediately.
Spying on opposition journalists is incompatible with democracy. If they are doing it to us and again they are definitely doing it to us they are almost certainly doing it to others.
This is scary and we need to stop it right away.
