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.

Video: Biden Appears To Yell “My Butt’s Been Wiped” At A Reporter

It’s anyone’s guess what the hell he’s shouting here

As Joe Biden doddered up to a gaggle of reporters Sunday with all the grace of a reanimated corpse, he also seemed to yell “My butt’s been wiped” right into the face of one reporter who was shouting questions about immigration above the whirring of a helicopter.

Watch:

Maybe that’s not what he said, but yes, it is real:

The reporters all laughed as if this is completely normal behaviour for the so called leader of the free world.

Before shuffling off Biden said “There needs to be a pathway to citizenship whether it needs to be in immigration remains to be seen.”

Eh?

Anyone got any ideas what he actually yelled?

Truly bizarre.

Video: Capitol Defendant’s Attorney Says Detainees Are Being Subject To “TORTURE!” In Car Crash CNN Interview

“Are you OK with people being tortured five miles from the White House?”

An attorney for one of the defendants charged with infiltrating the U.S. Capitol building on January 6th alleged that his client and others are being brutally tortured “five miles from the White House” in an awkward interview on CNN Tuesday.

Joseph McBride was asked for comments relating to the eight month prison sentence given to Paul Hodgkins for merely walking into the building and sitting at Nancy Pelosi’s desk.

McBride, who represents another of the accused told CNN host John Avlon that “there are people who showed up to attack the Capitol, there are people who showed up to protest, and there are people who showed up to protest that got involved with the greater events of that day. And it is very important not to lump everybody in, not to define every protester that showed up that day as an insurrectionist — which, by the way, no one has been charged with.” 

Avlon then asked McBride about a comparison he made between the conditions the suspects are being held in and Nazi gulags, pouring scorn on the notion.

McBride urged that “People are being tortured. Tortured!” asking Avlon “Are you OK with people being tortured five miles from the White House?”

Avlon responded by saying that the claim was “an extraordinary statement that would seem to be utterly un-based in fact.”

McBride shot back yelling “Torture is never OK! TORTURE! TORTURE! TORTURE! TORTURE! TORTURE!” prompting Avlon to end the interview

“Keep yelling torture. We’ll stick with the facts,” he said.

“The facts are torture!” the attorney yelled back.

Watch:

It isn’t the first time that the claims of torture have arisen in regards to the Capitol ‘rioters’ who have been held for months without trial.

The inmates and some of their lawyers have alleged that they are being held in solitary confinement and have been subject to beatings, threats and verbal abuse by guards.

On attorney described his client Ryan Samsel’s face as looking “like a tomato that was stomped on,” after a beating by correctional officers that left him “blind in one eye, [with] a skull fracture and detached retina.”

Inmate Ronald Sandlin has also alleged that minority guards are targeting the mostly white inmates with racial abuse, specifically noting that one guard shouted “I hate all white people and your honky religion.”

Report: 9/11 Families Sick Of Democrats Saying Capitol Infiltration Was Worse

“They just dehumanize our families for political gain.”; “It’s a deliberate ploy.”

Families of those who died in the 9/11 attacks have slammed Democrats for repeatedly comparing the worst terrorist atrocity in U.S. history to the January 6th Capitol building infiltration, saying that the rhetoric is “inflated and ridiculous”.

Fox News reports that some families of 9/11 victims are ‘outraged’ over the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden claiming that. Jan 6 was “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War,” or that there should be a “9/11-style” commission.

Retired New York Deputy Fire Chief Jim Riches who lost his son, also a firefighter, told reporters “They’re comparing it to score points politically.”

“Are they kidding me? 3,000 people died, plus we have more people dying from the air that was down there,” Riches continued, adding “The families are really [angry]. When I talk to them, when they compare it to that, they find that outrageous.”

Debra Burlingame, whose brother was murdered aboard American Airlines Flight 77 before it crashed at the Pentagon, urged “There are a lot of young people who have no living memory of 9/11 … When you have all these comparisons and analogies, which are inflated and ridiculous, it minimizes what actually happened, and that’s what’s happening here. It’s a deliberate ploy.”

Joe Connor, who lost a cousin in the World Trade Center, noted “They just dehumanize our families for political gain. I guess they call it gaslighting.”

Connor continued, “They can say these things that will make people believe that these riots were worse than the worst thing that happened on American soil. Either they’re ignorant or they’re just really devious and clever, and you can put nothing past them, because if you’re willing to lie to that degree … It’s a disturbing trend to me.”

Don Arias, who lost a brother in the South Tower told Fox that “Clear thinking people see these inflammatory statements as the bulls–t they are. There’s no comparison.”

Another American, nicknamed “Grizzly Joe” lost four friends on 9/11 and told reporters “It strikes me that if folks need to compare January 6 to 9/11, they have no faith in their ability to portray January 6 as the unfortunate criminal act that it was.”

The report also notes that leftist “journalists” are mimicking the Democrat ploy:

Some among the Capitol Hill press corps have also complained that they are traumatised by the event that they “survived”, and refuse to go back into the building.

Democrats have used the Capitol breach to consolidate power and initiate a stasi-like security crackdown, beefing up the Capitol police.

Those arrested after the breach have been treated like terrorists.
