Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been accused of being a Russian Agent by not a liberal, but an unlikely source.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson says a top House Republican told him to his face he’s working for Vladimir Putin.
In an interview with ex-Democrat Tulsi Gabbard on the Tuesday edition of her podcast The Tulsi Gabbard Show, Carlson said his efforts to secure an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin led to him being called a Russian Agent.
Carlson recounted an angry exchange he had with Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), who accused him of being a Russian agent on the basis of information provided by the congressman’s intel briefers.
“I got into an argument with him once last year on the phone — he had told somebody that I was a Russian agent or something, and I was outraged,” Carlson began.
The Fox host said he used “bad language” in the exchange with McCaul who responded with“‘that’s what the intel briefers told me — that you were working for Russia.’”
