Tucker Carlson Knocks the FBI Over New Trump-Russia Report

Tucker Carlson blasted the FBI in reaction to the stunning new report that they opened an inquiry into whether President Donald Trump was secretly working for Russia.

The New York Times dropped this bombshell report tonight, detailing how this inquiry was opened after the firing of James Comey, and how it ended up under the purview of Robert Mueller.

Carlson reacted by telling viewers “this is why you should never criticize the FBI”:

“You think it’s your birthright as an American. You can do it. I wouldn’t try it though. They might open an investigation into you without your knowledge into something appalling. Maybe it’s beating your wife, maybe it’s dealing fentanyl to kids, maybe it’s betraying your country in some alliance with Vladimir Putin. You don’t need to have done it. But once they investigate you, they can always leak two years later that they were investigating you for this crime that you didn’t commit or at least they found no evidence you committed. At least they never charged you for it, which is how our system is supposed to work. But it doesn’t matter because you’re instantly discredited. Don’t criticize the FBI. Very unwise.”
