Fox News host Tucker Carlson made a massive claim against the NSA and suggests that Joe Biden’s administration is “spying on us” in a recent video.
Carlson claims a whistleblower informed him of this. Carlson then suggests that he’s being spied on so whomever is spying can use this information against him in an attempt to take his show off the air.
The Fox News host also suggests that Biden’s administration is spying on Americans and that he has also filed a Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA) to gather more information about this pending topic, per a post from Daily Caller

Tucker Carlson has informed fans that he believes Biden’s administration wants his show off the air and took a trip down the rabbit hole of possibilities.
The host, one of Fox News most successful, said the following as quoted by NY Post: “It’s not just political protests that the government is spying on.. Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the US government who reached out to warn us that the NSA, the National Security Agency, is monitoring our electronic communications and is planning to leak them in an attempt to take this show off the air.”
Carlson continued, saying he’s usually “skeptical” of these types of reported, but also said “it’s illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It’s a crime. It’s not a Third World country. Things like that should not happen in America.”
He kept going, saying “The whistleblower, who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story that we are working on that could have only come directly from my texts and emails… There’s no other possible source for that information. Period. They did it for political reasons. The Biden administration is spying on us. We have confirmed that.”
Carlson did not reveal his source or the whistleblower identity and has not yet received the information he requested in the FOIA.
As of now, these are merely Carlson’s claims and Americans must wait for the evidence to back it up or prove it wrong.
If what Tucker Carlson says is true, then it’s not a good sign for the NSA.
As history shows from the controversial incident with Edward Snowden, the NSA was wrapped up in a mass surveillance issue before and the court suggested the efforts may have been unconstitutional, as reported on Reuters:
“In a ruling handed down on Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said the warrantless telephone dragnet that secretly collected millions of Americans’ telephone records violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and may well have been unconstitutional.”
Is Biden’s NSA spying on all Americans? Is mass surveillance good or bad for America?
