Whistleblower Edward Snowden called out Fox News host Tucker Carlson for claiming Americans have grounds to believe intelligence agencies have misused their powers “for the first time.”
Carlson tweeted Tuesday: “For the first time in generations Americans have reason to believe that our intelligence and law enforcement agencies gravely misuse the powers we have given them.”
While the US government’s inclination to spy on its citizens may have come as a surprise to Carlson, former NSA contractor Edward Snowden – who leaked documents showing the agency’s mass surveillance of Americans in 2013 – begged to differ.
The first time in generations, you say? t.co/wuYSUMdKQc
