After the allegations that NSA was spying on Tucker Carlson were confirmed to be true, Tucker joined Maria Bartiromo on her morning show to personally discuss his point of view on such a revelation.

“I was in Washington for a funeral last week and ran into someone I knew well who said ‘I have a message for you,’ and then proceeded to repeat back to me details from emails and text that I sent and told no one else about. So it was verified and this person said, ‘look, the NSA has this’ and that was proven by the person repeating back the contents of the email, ‘and is going to use it against you,'” Carlson told Bartiromo.
Carlson said from this exchange, “They do have my emails so I knew they were spying on me… As a defensive move, I thought, ‘I better say this out-loud.'” Carlson also added his shock that “the NSA didn’t deny it.”
Carlson also made another revelation that the NSA was leaking his emails and texts to journalists in an effort to damage his reputation saying, “The NSA leaked the contents of my email to journalists in an effort to discredit me. I know because I got a call from one of them saying, ‘oh this is what your email was about.'”
Furthermore, according to the Post Millenial,
“Carlson also claimed that the NSA routinely breaks the law by spying on American citizens and collecting their digital data which is not in their mandate. Carlson said he learned from two FBI agents that work at “headquarters,” “The NSA routinely gives information on American citizens to the Justice Department- to the FBI, which it then uses in its intel division. Now that’s illegal.”
Carlson also claimed that the NSA and CIA are spying on elected representatives even the ones who are supposed to be in charge of overseeing the intelligence agencies’ activities. “There’s supposed to be an oversight on this by the Congress- by the Intel Committee. And there’s not, I spoke to a member of the Intel Committee three years ago who told me to my face, that he was being spied upon by the NSA and the CIA… This is a sitting member of the Intel Committee who said that the people he was supposed to be overseeing were spying on him and there’s nothing he could do about it.”
Of course, the NSA denied all this in a statement they officially released.
