House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy asked rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.) to investigate Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s claim that the National Security Administration read his emails
“Now, there is a public report that NSA read the emails of Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Although NSA publicly denied targeting Carlson, I have serious questions regarding this matter that must be answered,” cited Pergram. “Given this disturbing trend, I’ve asked HPSCI Ranking Member Devin Nunes to investigate and find answers on behalf of the American people. The NSA cannot be used as a political instrument, and House Republicans will ensure accountability and transparency.”
on Monday night, Carlson claimed that a government whistleblower told his team that the NSA was “spying” on their personal communications and “planning to leak them in an attempt to take this show off the air.”
Carlson did not offer any evidence for his claim.
