House Republicans Send Letter To NSA Demanding Info On Tucker Carlson Spying Claims

Reps demand “A full explanation of when the Agency understands it is lawful to monitor, surveil, collect, unmask, or receive data on a US citizen without a court order”

Seventeen Republicans in the House have written a letter to the NSA demanding all information relating to claims that the spy agency has been monitoring Tucker Carlson’s private communications and leaking details to left-wing journalists.

The NSA has claimed (again) that it only eavesdrops on foreign adversaries, tweeting in response to the allegations that “Tucker Carlson has never been an intelligence target of the Agency and the NSA has never had any plans to try to take his program off the air.”

Carlson’s own news agency The Daily Caller published the letter from the Republicans which calls for “A detailed description of the ‘limited exceptions’ that would permit the NSA to target a US citizen without a court order, as the Agency understands the term as it is used in its own tweet.”

It also asks for “A detailed description of what constitutes an ’emergency’ that would permit the NSA to target a US citizen without a court order, as the Agency understands the term as used in its own tweet.”

The letter also calls for “A full explanation of when the Agency understands it is lawful to monitor, surveil, collect, unmask, or receive data on a US citizen without a court order explicitly authorizing such targeting, including while conducted in the course of targeting foreign powers.”

The GOP Reps also ask for an explanation as to how the NSA defines what a “domestic terrorist” is, and “What specific actions have been taken to hold accountable those who unmasked, approved unmasking, or shared information on unmasked U.S. citizens?”

Read the full letter below:

In a further statement to the Daily Caller, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert said “After the disturbing treatment of Donald Trump by the Deep State, it should come as no surprise that intelligence agencies are continuing their illegal surveillance of Americans who dare to challenge power-hungry elites in Washington, D.C.”

Gohmert added that “Reports about the NSA spying on Tucker Carlson are reminiscent of something one would expect to see in a tyrannical dictatorship, not the United States of America where citizens supposedly still have Constitutional rights. The Agency’s attempt to explain itself thus far has only raised more questions that Mr. Carlson and every citizen of this country deserve to have answered.” 

The actions of the House Republicans come after Senator Rand Paul also wrote to the NSA asking for information on the spying claims, noting that a “long train of abuses” by the spy agency means a tweet denying Carlson’s charges isn’t enough.

Watch: Psaki Says Biden Will Continue To Call Americans Who Do Not Support Him ‘Extremists’

Biden proclaimed that “MAGA is the most extreme political organization” in history

After Joe Biden declared Wednesday that “MAGA is the most extreme political organization” in US history, reporters questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki if Americans should expect that kind of rhetoric to continue, and she said yes.

CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins noted that Biden “was sharply critical of the MAGA crowd,” asking Psaki “is that what we should expect to speak his message going into the midterms?”

Psaki responded, “I would expect you will hear” more of this rhetoric from Biden “over the next coming months.”

Watch:

When another reporter asked a similar question, noting how divisive the language is, Psaki responded “I think the president will be judged by Americans by his actions.”

Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy noted that Biden also claimed that Republicans might use the overturning of Roe vs Wade  segregate LGBTQ children from the other children in classrooms.

Doocy noted “The president said today, ‘What happens if you have states change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children?’” asking Psaki “What is he talking about?”

Psaki responded by using the word “extreme” again, asserting that “we don’t know what they’re capable of given what they’ve already done to date.”

“Which state is trying to segregate LGBTQ children in the classroom?” Doocy further probed.

Psaki again went to the “extreme”.

“Well, I think we’ve seen laws that are incredibly discriminatory. That’s what the President’s referring to and the fact that he doesn’t know what additional steps could be taken by extreme wings of the party that would rather divide rather than work on issues that the American people actually are focused on actually impacting them,” she responded.

    Adam Schiff: “I Don’t Care How the Draft Leaked”

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman tries to downplay unprecedented breach.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff asserted, “I don’t care how the draft leaked” in response to the Roe v Wade decision leak, despite it representing an unprecedented breach in Supreme Court history.

    “I don’t care how the draft leaked. That’s a sideshow,” tweeted Schiff.

    “What I care about is that a small number of conservative justices, who lied about their plans to the Senate, intend to deprive millions of women of reproductive care. Codifying Roe isn’t enough. We must expand the court,” he added.

    As Breitbart reports, Schiff’s response is similar to how he attempted to protect the identity of the leaker of President Donald Trump’s classified call with the Ukrainian president.

    “Schiff, during Trump’s impeachment hearings, sought to interfere with Republicans’ questioning when it came to the identity of the leaker,” writes Kristina Wong.

    Speculation is rife as to the identity of the leaker, with some commentators calling for them to be arrested.

    The only people with access to the original document were the nine justices and their 36 law clerks, meaning it’s almost certain that one of the 36 law clerks leaked the document.

    When you consider that each justice has four clerks working for them, that probably narrows it down to one of 16 clerks working for the four Democrat-appointed justices.

    Conservative commentator Will Chamberlain was pilloried by the media for suggesting that the individual is almost certainly Elizabeth Deutsch, who is currently a law clerk for Justice Breyer.

    “I certainly think someone who has spent much of their academic and professional life fighting to expand the right to get an abortion could be desperate enough to do so,” tweeted Chamberlain.

    Watch: Tucker Carlson Reminds America That Its Current President Voted AGAINST Roe Vs Wade

    “Biden concluded Roe had gone ‘too far.'”

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted Tuesday that Joe Biden voted against Roe vs Wade when he was a Senator, favouring making it a State issue, rather than a decision that should be made by the Supreme Court.

    Carlson told viewers that “Joe Biden has always supported legal abortion, but nine years after the Roe decision was handed down, he was still willing to admit it was indefensible as a legal decision.”

    The host continued, “Pregnant women, Biden explained in 1982 as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, should not have “the sole right to say what should happen” to their unborn children, because, after all, no one creates children alone. It takes two people. That’s obvious.”

    “In fact, Biden concluded Roe had gone ‘too far.’ And of course, it had gone too far. That was obvious then. It’s obvious now. Then, as now, many Americans believe that abortion is murder. Many other Americans consider abortion a prerequisite to happiness,” Carlson further noted.

    During the monologue, Carlson called Roe vs Wade “the most embarrassing court decision handed down in the last century,” but noted that the leak of the draft opinion written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito was dangerous and that “people could get hurt”.

    Carlson suggested that the leak was an intentional attempt to pressure conservative justices not to go through with overturning the ruling.

    Watch:

    Recent polls have revealed that almost half of Americans believe that states should decide for themselves on the issue of abortion, with many of the opinion that terminations should be capped at 15 weeks.

    In a Marist poll, 44% of people said it should be down to individual states to decide, while 48% said they would support the same law to apply after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

    A Wall Street Journal poll also found 42% would support a ban on abortion after 6 weeks, while 48% supported a ban after 15 weeks.

    A Gallup poll also found that 48% believe abortion should only be legal under certain circumstances.
