The White House is refusing to reveal whether the National Security Agency illegally spied on Fox News star Tucker Carlson’s electronic conversations.
A reporter questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on board Air Force One en way to Wisconsin if the National Security Agency was spying on Tucker Carlson, as disclosed on his broadcast last night. Psaki evaded and declined to address the question, instead sending the reporter to the intelligence community.

“Tucker Carlson claims that the National Security Agency (NSA) is spying on him; is the administration aware of any NSA espionage or listening attempts on US individuals, and is Tucker Carlson one of them?” the reporter inquired.
Rather of disputing the allegations, Psaki evaded them. “Uh, well, the NSA, as I’m sure you’re aware, as I’m sure everyone on this plane is aware, is um, an entity that concentrates on foreign threats and persons uh, who are tr-attempting to do us damage on foreign land, as I’m sure you’re aware. So, yeah, that is their responsibility, but I would refer you to the intelligence community for anything beyond that,” Psaki added.

According to National File, Carlson alleged that the NSA was unlawfully spying on him in order to leak material in order to get his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” removed off the air. Carlson added, “We heard from a whistleblower within the US government yesterday who warned us that the NSA, the National Security Agency, is monitoring our electronic conversations and plans to disclose them in an attempt to knock this show off the air.” “Now, that’s a surprising accusation, and we’d normally be wary of it; spying on American residents is unlawful, and it’s a crime. Things like these should not happen in America; it is not a third-world country. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
Following Carlson’s announcement on his broadcast, Democrats came to the agency’s rescue. Supporters of Americans’ constitutional rights, on the other hand, were eager to criticize the NSA for illegally spying on Carlson. After it was revealed that the intelligence agency was illegally monitoring Carlson’s electronic communications in an effort to get his show taken off the air, Greg Kelly, host of Newsmax TV’s “Greg Kelly Reports,” trolled the “DEEP STATE” NSA and FBI in a lengthy text to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, as National File reported.
“Hey, Tucker,” I said. It was an excellent concert. bbr – Kelly wrote to Carlson, “I have to send a message to the Deep State.” “WELCOME TO DEEP STATE. SPECIFICALLY THE NSA AND FBI reviewing my private correspondence with Tucker Carlson, a fellow American citizen who appears to be a person of interest in your political (and unlawful) Witch Hunt. “I’M GOING TO HELL.” Kelly continued, “Stay out of it,” and “The Constitution is not asleep just because Biden and the media are.”
