In the wake of the firing of former Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson, a video has been circulating on social media, and some have speculated that his comments may have played a role.
In an interview with former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard conducted in December 2022, he claimed that some members of Congress are “controlled by the intelligence agencies.”
“There are members of Congress who are controlled by the intelligence agencies. I’m not speculating about this, I know this. I lived there for 35 years. I know this,” the former Fox News host said.
“I had a very high-ranking member of the House Intel Committee tell me at dinner at a restaurant in Washington, he’d been drinking. ‘We’ve got to talk about this.’ I said to text me. He said, ‘I don’t text.’ Why is that? Well, he said ‘the NSA reads my texts.’ I said, ‘The NSA reads your texts? You’re the head guy on the Intelligence Committee. You’re their boss? You’re providing oversight in our Constitutional system,’” he said. “Yeah, but they’re still spying on him.”
“The second thing: Michael McCaul, who is the leader of the neocons in the House, I got into an argument once with him last year on the phone. He told somebody that I was a Russian agent or something. And I was outraged! So I called him on the phone, and I used bad language. I was really mad. He said, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, I that was just what the intel briefers told me, that you’re working for Russia,’” the former host said.
“And I said, “That’s what the intel briefers told you? You believe your f***ng intel briefers? How old are you, son?’” he said.
“I’m from DC. My dad was in this world. Like, you’re being manipulated by your intel briefers. Duh!” he said. “And he said they had all sorts of corroborating evidence. You’ve seen evidence I’m a Russian agent? I’m an American. I was born here. I’ve never lived anywhere else. I’m pretty patriotic. What an outrageous thing to say!”
“Basically, he tells me I believe what they say. And I told him like five times, I probably shouldn’t even be repeating this, but I was so mad, I was thinking about this, this morning. Because I just saw that McCaul is now sending more money to Ukraine. Like, why are you doing that? Because you’re controlled by the intel agencies. That is true, And I’m just absolutely sick of it,” he said.
Obama: Don’t hire Flynn.
Say what? Why?
Now you know part of the reason.
To fix it, requires getting back in office.

Donald Trump Jr. stated that he was warned by Fox News executives that his criticism of the abrupt firing of top-rated host Tucker Carlson last week was not appreciated.
According to RadarOnline.com, the eldest son of the former president was warned to “expect retaliation” after he criticized the firing and accused senior executives of “censorship.”
In addition, he has not been invited onto the network in nearly nine months, according to the allegation.

“I’ve been watching the censorship happening even in conservative mainstream media,” Don Jr. said on the latest episode of the Steak for Breakfast podcast. “I mean, you saw what sort of Fox did to Tucker Carlson, last week and the week before that, it was Dan Bongino and, you know, the people who would actually question some of that narrative.” CONTINUE READING…
