Rand Paul seeks investigation into Tucker Carlson’s NSA spying allegations

Sharing is Caring!

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is requesting an investigation into allegations by Tucker Carlson that the National Security Agency was spying on him, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: The senator sent a letter to Gen. Paul Nakasone of the National Security Agency, casting doubt on the NSA’s public denial of spying on Carlson and defending the Fox News host as a journalist who should be protected by the First Amendment.

Between the lines: Paul, who sits on the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, wrote that he is “open-minded” to believe the NSA may be telling the truth.

  • However, he argues a “long train of abuses” committed by the agency must elicit more than a “carefully worded” tweet of denial to be trusted.
  • Paul requests the agency answer specific questions, including whether it will investigate if Carlson’s allegations are true.
  • He asks for lawful justification of any unmasking if it, indeed, occurred.
