    FBI Raids Dem Lawmaker’s Home Tied to Tucker Carlson Leaks

    Published on

    According to a story published on Friday, the FBI raided the home of a Florida Democratic senator because of disclosures involving former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson.

    According to the Tampa Bay Times, the raid occurred at the residence of Lynn Hurtak, a member of the Tampa City Council, and her husband, media consultant Tim Burke, earlier this month.

    Since Fox abruptly removed Tucker Carlson from the air last month, there have been a number of disclosures to left-leaning media sources, such as Media Matters, which appear to be intended to harm Carlson. Recently, disparaging comments he made off-air were leaked and published (see below).

    Fox News has been criticized by right-leaning critics for the disclosures, which they claim were done on purpose to harm Carlson’s reputation.

    The Times has obtained a letter addressed to Fox News from a federal prosecutor in Tampa describing an investigation into “intrusions and intercepted communications at the Fox News Network.”

    Florida Politics also mentioned:

    According to the letter, the hacked material relates to a Vice News story titled “Watch the Disturbing Kanye Interview Clips Tucker Carlson Didn’t Air” and another story titled “FOXLEAKS” from the left-leaning Media Matters for America. Neither outlet is accused of wrongdoing.

    According to a report from The New York Times, the investigation does not involve Fox News or its employees, but rather “other subjects.”

    The letter, written by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Trezevant, requested that Fox News preserve any information and records related to the investigation for at least 90 days, adding that Fox is “one of the potential victim-witnesses” of alleged criminal conduct, per the Times.

    The Times reports that Burke has worked for left-leaning media outlets such as Deadspin and The Daily Beast.

    “Federal agents seized personal and business devices belonging to Burke during the May 8 search, including a phone and several computers,” Business Insider added.

    “Fox News has asked that lawyers for Dominion investigate the ‘release of confidential discovery material,’ which Dominion denied came from the company or its attorneys,” the outlet continued.

    Fox parted ways with Carlson, the most beloved personality on the network, for reasons that are unclear. People flocked to rivals such as Newsmax TV, which features several former Fox News personalities such as Eric Bolling and Greta Van Susteren, after Fox News was taken off the air, causing it to lose its former top position in cable news ratings.

    Nonetheless, there has been considerable speculation. According to Rolling Stone magazine, network executives informed Carlson last week that he was being dismissed as part of Fox News’ $787.5 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems for defamation.

    “In the latest development to come three weeks after Carlson was removed from his role at the network on April 24, it has been reported that one of Fox Corp.’s eight board members was the one to tell the fired host that his ‘recent benching’ was the result of the secret condition in the Dominion settlement,” the outlet reported.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    The report continued: “According to Variety, the conversation between Carlson and the board member took place on April 26 – two days after the network announced Carlson’s involuntary departure from the company. The board member also reportedly told Carlson that the secret condition ensuring Carlson’s canning would not be found in any of the $787.5 million defamation settlement documents because it was a verbal agreement.” CONTINUE READING…
