‘They lied’: Tucker Carlson rails against DC bureaucrats, media over disputed report on Russian bounties

Fox News host Tucker Carlson just let loose on bureaucrats in Washington and their cohorts in the media after it was revealed that a bombshell 2020 report scrutinizing then-President Donald Trump over his response — or lack thereof — to intelligence that Russia had put bounties on the heads of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan turned out to be false.

The story begins back in June of last year, when, as Carlson explained, The New York Times published a report “saying that the American intelligence community had ‘concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan.'”

“It was fake”

The Times report came on the heels of an announcement from Trump that he’d be moving to fully withdraw America’s troops from Afghanistan.

Trump was never able to accomplish his goal, which Joe Biden is now hoping to reach by Sept. 11, 2021. But as it turns out, the roadblock Trump ran into thanks to the Gray Lady and outlets that followed it may have all been premised on a lie.

The White House admitted last week that U.S. intelligence officials had only “low to moderate confidence” in the existence of the bounties from Russia, which were said to have been arranged with the Taliban, as The Hill notes.

On his Friday program, Carlson didn’t hold back in slamming the White House, the “Deep State,” and the media for allowing what he called a “lie” to perpetuate.

“Rarely has a news story had a swifter or more profound effect than this one did. By now you’ve guessed the punchline: it was fake,” he said of the Times report.

“They lied”

The New York Times story was a lie,” Carlson charged, according to Breitbart. “It was placed in the paper by neocons in order to subvert our democratic system, and it did, and once again impose their will on the country. The public didn’t want to stay in Afghanistan for 20 years, they did, and got their way because they lied.”

So what’s changed? Carlson explained it best:

They’re admitting that the story isn’t true, and they’re doing it for a very specific reason: Joe Biden has decided he now wants out of Afghanistan, but before we can leave he needs new facts. You have to fix this story or you can’t pull the troops out. And the CIA is happy to oblige.

While Biden may be backing away from Afghanistan, he does seem to be turning up the heat on Russia. According to the New York Post, the president has slapped the country with sanctions and kicked out its diplomats to America in response to a recent cyberattack and alleged interference in the 2020 U.S. election.

The White House reportedly said the moves “constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.”

Of course, the same could be said about “fake” mainstream news reports based solely on low-confidence intel. But you won’t hear Biden mentioning that.

  1. Liberal Dems love destroying America and everything she stands for. Biden is a complete loser as a leader and should be removed from office, along with Harris. Both are traitors to this nation.

  2. The New York Times is not a news organization, they are America’s rumor-mill factory. They should be punished every time they publish lies as being truth. I’ve gotten to the point that I don’t believe anything The New York Times publish.

  6. There will soon come the time to water the tree of freedom with the blood of our enemies. That will be the real scorched earth! I have seven words for the haters of every thing good. You had better buckle your seat belt!

  7. Is this any bit surprising? Anyone with half a brain should know that the Democrats and the Biden administration is based upon a significant series of LIES!!!
    History has proven that the Democrat Party and the Biden/Harris administration wallows in lies so deep that a normal individual would drown almost immediately!
    This has reached a point well beyond reason and common sense to a thinking adult and approaches the reality of Dictatorship!
    Rather than go thru the normal process of legislation the Biden/Harris administration has chosen to rule by Executive Order (ie: Dictatorial edicts)
    How many Executive Orders has Joe Biden signed in his first 100 days in office? How many executive order did any or all of his predecessors sign in their first 100 days? Who obviously feels that he is EMPEROR! (JOE)

    1. well said. Oh so true for those who actually pay attention to the shenanigans. I just have a hard time watching all that is going on and not being able to do a thing about it. The worst is they don’t care. I can’t believe we have a clueless president and a vice president seems to care about herself and not the americans they are suppose to respresent. I hope every one that voted for them are happy now.

      1. ANYONE IN PUBLIC OFFICE THAT CUTS INTO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE USA ARE TREASONESS; AND SHOULD BE TAKEN STRAIGHT TO PRISION AT ONCE. IT SEEMS LIKE THE LAWS OF THIS COUNTRY HAVE BEEN TROMPED DOWN, AND NEVER ENFORCED, WHILE THE GOV F0RCE IS PLAYING TIDDLE WINKS; TAKING THE CONSTITUTION APART, HANG THEM ALL.

  8. We’d like to know where is the Repubs. they seem to be no where to be found when it comes to news media and Democratic leader shouting lies and half truths they knew this was a false naritive but just set on it. We are getting tired of all the lies and false information and some political figures such as Maxine Waters telling folks to rise up and destroy. We always were tought people like that should be tried for treason. Two many politicians are shouting destroy & insuraction mean while sucking money off of us the tax payer.

    1. IS OUR VICE PRESIDENT ELIGEBLE TO BE OUR PRESIDENT, YES SHE WAS A ANCHOR BABY, TO PARENTS THAT I DONT BELIEVE WERE CITIZENS, AT THE TIME.
