Tucker Carlson is doubling down on his accusations that the National Security Agency is spying on him, despite the government publically denying his claims.
The 52-year-old Fox News host went back on his show to slam Joe Biden's administration after claiming a whistleblower told him the NSA has been targeting him in an attempt to get his show canceled.
According to Carlson, someone informed him of the alleged espionage on Sunday.
"It is not just political protest the government is spying on," he told his viewers on Monday.
Carlson went onto explain the situation, claiming, "Yesterday we heard from a whistle-blower within the US government who reached out to warn us that the NSA, the national security agency, is monitoring our electronic communication and is planning to leak them in an attempt to take this show off the air."
The NSA took to social media to deny Tucker's allegations on Tuesday.
"This allegation is untrue. 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," the agency tweeted.
Insinuating that he's unimportant, they added, "NSA has a foreign intelligence mission. We target foreign powers to generate insights on foreign activities that could harm the United States. With limited exceptions (e.g. an emergency), NSA may not target a US citizen without a court order that explicitly authorizes the targeting."
Carlson acknowledged the NSA's statement but made it clear that he doesn't believe them.
Calling the agency's statement "infuriatingly dishonest," he alleged they didn't necessarily refute his claims.
He also played a clip of White Press Secretary Jen Psaki answering a question about Carlson's allegations.
"The Biden administration ignored the story. They did not deny the story. They can't. They know it is true," Carlton responded to Psaki's generic response.
"Last night on the show, we made a straightforward claim: The NSA has read my private emails without my permission. That is what we said," he said on his Tuesday episode.
"Nakasone, in tonight's statement from the NSA, does not deny that. Instead, it comes with this, in part 'Tucker Carlson has never been intelligence target of the agency,'" he continued.
"Okay, glad to know, but the question remains: Did the Biden administration read my personal email? That is the question that we asked directly to NSA officials when we spoke to them about 20 minutes ago in a very heated conversation. Did you read my email?" Tucker said.
While Biden has remained quiet on the accusations, former President Donald Trump responded, "I think it's true. It's totally believable."
