Tucker Carlson has remained in the spotlight after his unexpected firing from Fox News last April.
The former No. 1 Fox News host has landed notable interviews since launching his new venture on X, including Elon Musk, former President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Daily Caller reported that Carlson alleged President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice “illegally spied” on his team’s text messages in an effort to prevent an interview with Putin.
Carlson doubled down on this assertion, saying he was “pretty certain” the administration repeated this action last month.
The news host shared that DOJ officials targeted him after he questioned America’s funding of the war in Ukraine and suggested the American government may be protecting illegal chemical labs and money laundering enterprises in the region.
On Tuesday, the Daily Caller reported that Tucker has taken a flight to Moscow and has plans to interview Putin. Carlson said, “Two years into a [war] that’s reshaping the entire world, most Americans are not informed.”
Carlson added: “[Most Americans] have no real idea what’s happening in this region, here in Russia or 600 miles away in Ukraine. But they should know, they’re paying for much of it in ways that they might not yet fully perceive.”
Tucker shared why he desired to interview the Russian president in a video posted on X. “The war in Ukraine is a human disaster,” Tucker said. “It’s left hundreds of thousands of people dead — an entire generation of young Ukrainians.”
Tucker added: “This war has utterly reshaped … global military and trade alliances … [it] has upended the world economy. … These are history-altering developments.”
“No one has told [citizens of English-speaking countries] the truth. Their media outlets are corrupt. They lie to their readers and viewers,” asserted Tucker, as he argued for why it was important to conduct the interview.
Tucker concluded his video post by saying, “We are not here because we love Vladimir Putin. We are here because we love the United States. And we want it to remain prosperous and free.”
