Did you know the U.S. government is spying on members of Congress?
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has obtained information directly from members of Congress about disturbing surveillance activities on U.S. citizens.
In response, Congressman Chris Stewart of Utah has introduced legislation to better protect U.S. citizens from domestic surveillance.
Carlson has directly spoken with two sitting members of Congress who found out that they were being spied on by U.S. intel agencies.
Both the CIA and NSA are accused of spying on domestic U.S. citizens.
Carlson did not disclose any names.
This doesn’t come as a major surprise considering that the FBI spied on former President Donald Trump based on false information feed to them by Democrats.
Leading up to the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats hired Christopher Steele, a former British spy, to find dirt on Trump.
Steele then hired Russian analyst Igor Danchenko to oversee the illegal and politically charged witch hunt against Trump.
On behalf of Clinton and the Democrats, Danchenko provided false research to the FBI, which lead to the bureau applying for surveillance warrants against Trump. These warrants were issued by the court.
Then the FBI proceeded to spy on the Trump campaign during the 2016 campaign based on the Democrats’ fraudulent and illegal activities. The FBI specifically targeted Trump’s campaign aide George Papadopoulos.
Multiple people have been arrested as a result of this corrupt political scandal, including Steele and Danchecko. Hillary Clinton has not been criminally charged to date.
More on this story via The Washington Times:
Carlson made headlines last summer when he accused the NSA of “spying” on him in an attempt to take his show off the air. The Fox News host’s communications were said to be about scheduling an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The NSA released a rare public statement June 29 saying Carlson was “never” a target of the agency and denied a plot to get Carlson’s show taken off the air. However, the statement did not preclude the possibility any communications were incidentally collected or Carlson’s name being unmasked by some official in the Biden administration.
Sources told the Record that Carlson’s identity was disclosed through a process known as “unmasking,” which is when the names of U.S. citizens that are mentioned but covered up in final intelligence reports about the surveillance of foreigners are revealed upon the request of authorized officials, who have the ability to ask for the disclosures, often to understand the information better.
“For the NSA to unmask Tucker Carlson or any journalist attempting to secure a newsworthy interview is entirely unacceptable and raises serious questions about their activities as well as their original denial, which was wildly misleading,” a Fox News spokesperson told the news outlet in July.
In August, the inspector general for the NSA announced an investigation into claims that the agency targeted a member of the press.
Stewart’s bill, introduced last week, would make two changes to the National Security Act of 1947.
“First, it will add a new section that explicitly bans the IC from conducting any surveillance activity that is unrelated to foreign intelligence or counterintelligence. Second, it will clarify terms used in the National Security Act to remove ambiguities, which have been claimed by certain authorities of the IC. Namely, it limits ‘intelligence’ to mean only ‘foreign intelligence and counterintelligence,'” he said in a statement.
