Tucker Carlson just got important news from the top spying agency in the nation.
“National Security Agency’s (NSA) inspector general will investigate if the agency ‘improperly’ spied on Tucker Carlson, who reportedly was attempting to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin,” according to Breitbart News.
“The inspector general for the NSA is opening an investigation into claims the agency ‘improperly targeted’ a ‘member of the U.S. media’ aka Tucker Carlson,” noted a report.
The investigation comes after Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) sent a letter August 3 to Director of National Intelligence Avril D. Haines to request a “formal inquiry into allegations that Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s communications were subject to NSA collection, and that Mr. Carlson’s identity was ‘unmasked’ component to that collection.”
“Similarly, media reports that Mr. Carlson was unmasked by a government agency or official have only fueled the perception that unmasking is being used as a political hammer or to satisfy curiosity,” said Rubio. “As such, it is essential that the IC – under your leadership – hold itself to account if misconduct has occurred, and convincingly reassure an American public increasingly attuned to the perception of widespread misconduct where it has not occurred.”
