President Joe Biden’s administration is spying on Fox News star Tucker Carlson, the primetime cable news host claimed during a shocking segment on Monday.
According to Carlson, an anonymous whistleblower from inside the National Security Agency revealed that the spy agency has wiretapped him and perhaps parts of his team.

Carlson said his source had access to private emails and text messages about an upcoming story that no one in the Biden administration should have access to — and their goal is to get his show removed from the airwaves, Carlson claimed.
“Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the U.S. 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 this show off the air,” Carlson said during his show.
“Now that’s a shocking claim and, ordinarily, we’d be skeptical of it,” he said. “It is illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It’s a crime. We are 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,” Carlson continued.
“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,” he claimed. “There’s no other possible source for that information. Period.”
“The NSA captured that information without our knowledge — and did it for political reasons,” Carlson said.

“The Biden administration is spying on us. We have confirmed that.”
Carlson said his legal team was fighting back, but said it was ultimately up to Congress to act.
“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,” he said. “We did it mostly as a formality. We’ve also contacted the press office of both NSA and the FBI.”
“We don’t expect to hear much back,” Carlson said. “That’s the way these things go. Only Congress can enforce 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,” he said.
“This is scary. And we need to stop it right away.”
