Tucker Carlson Alleges That the US Government Blocked Him From Interviewing Putin

Back in July, Tucker Carlson revealed that he had been trying to arrange an interview with Vladimir Putin -- and that the NSA began reading his emails and leaking them selectively to the press.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Wednesday he had been attempting to schedule an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin before he publicly claimed last week that the National Security Agency (NSA) was spying on him.

Carlson's comments came just after Axios published a report, citing sources familiar with the conversations, that Carlson had been communicating with Kremlin intermediaries in the U.S. about scheduling an interview with Putin when the Fox News host began accusing the NSA of spying on him.

Axios noted, however, that it had not confirmed if any of Carlson's communications were intercepted and if so, why.

Carlson, during his show on Wednesday, confirmed that he "contacted a couple of people I thought could help get us an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin."

He said he did not tell anyone about the attempt, other than his executive producer, because he "figured that any kind of publicity would rattle the Russians, and make the interview less likely to happen," before again accusing the Biden administration of "reading my emails" and leaking the contents to news organizations.

He now says that the debased, tyrannical government of this shithole country "stopped" him from doing so. He doesn't mention the NSA's surveillance of him.

Tucker Carlson has claimed that he was prevented from interviewing Russian President Vladimir Putin by the United States government.

Speaking to Swiss magazine Die Weltwoche, the former Fox News host did not specify when he had attempted to conduct the interview, giving it as an example of what he saw as an attempt to "subvert a democracy" by controlling the media.

"I tried to interview Vladimir Putin, and the U.S. government stopped me," he said in the article, published on Thursday. "By the way, nobody defended me. I don't think there was anybody in the news media who said, 'Wait a second. I may not like this guy, but he has a right to interview anyone he wants, and we have a right to hear what Putin says.'

"You're not allowed to hear Putin's voice. Because why? There was no vote on it. No one asked me. I'm 54 years old. I've paid my taxes and followed the law," he said.

It is unclear which arm of the U.S. government Carlson claims blocked the interview. Newsweek reached out to the White House via email for comment on Monday.

To defeat Russia, it was necessary to become Russia.
