This week shocking information came to light the NSA was spying on Tucker Carlson. Congressman Matt Gaetz has demanded an investigation by the Inspector General to look into this illegal government overreach.
Rep. Matt Gaetz: “The most watched cable news host has been stating for the last several nights that the NSA has been monitoring his communications and amazingly the NSA has issued a statement that is so couched is it is functionally an admission, lets review…”

Rep. Matt Gaetz: “But whats interesting is that there is no denial that they were monitoring Tucker Carlson, even if he wasn’t the target. We saw this exact playbook with Carter Page and Donald Trump where in order to try to assess information from one person, the intelligence community will utilize authorities to go after someone else to try and snare their true target.”
“It’s not like the NSA has never lied to us, I mean we were told there was no bulk collection of American’s data, turns out there was bulk collection of Americans data and nobody was ever held to account for that,” Gaetz said.
“Join me in calling for an Inspector General investigation into any monitoring that the NSA or any other element of the intelligence community has engaged in relative to Tucker Carlson.”
