The NSA admitted that Carlson’s emails were “unmasked”. That’s a word for hacked.
The report from The Record stated:
… the nation’s top electronic spy agency found that Carlson was mentioned in communications between third parties and his name was subsequently revealed through “unmasking,” a process in which relevant government officials can request the identities of American citizens in intelligence reports to be divulged provided there is an official reason, such as helping them make sense of the intelligence documents they are reviewing.
Renegade left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Live on Wednesday night where he discussed the implication of the news that the National Security Agency (NSA) leaked Carlson’s communications with regards to Russia.
Carlson had reached out to Russian President Vladimir Putin for a potential interview, something that other popular media figures have done in the past. Carlson has obtained evidence showing that the NSA leaked these details to left-wing reporters as part of a smear campaign meant to impugn his reputation. Greenwald believes that the NSA committed a criminal act with these leaks, either intentionally or unintentionally.
“There was either a failure to hide your identity as required by law which is illegal, or an attempt to unmask it after it was minimized which is also a crime given that there’s no national security justification for doing it,” Greenwald said.
“It is one of the gravest crimes in the U.S. code for the NSA to leak the contents of communications that it intercepts between a foreign official and an American citizen,” he added.
Greenwald explained how the deep state leaked information to the Washington Post in order to implicate General Michael Flynn in 2017, and how the fake news hacks looked the other way because they wanted to damage the incoming Trump administration.
“That’s the reaction here, ‘Oh, it’s Tucker Carlson, he’s a conservative, we don’t like him, and so we don’t even care if the NSA was doing this,’ but it is illegal,” Greenwald said.
Greenwald also brought up a years-old clip of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) where the swampy lawmaker admitted that the intelligence community destroys anyone in Congress who doesn’t bow to their illicit agenda.

Carlson addressed the entire NSA leak scandal during the opening monologue of his show as the Biden regime destroys the rule of law and ramps up the police state in the homeland.
“I learned from a whistleblower that the NSA planned to leak the contents of those emails to media outlets,” he said of his attempt to reach out to Russian President Vladimir Putin for an interview.
“We can’t have intelligence agencies used as instruments of political control. Both parties used to agree on that. Democrats were especially adamant on the point, but not anymore, so that is exactly what is happening here,” Carlson added, calling for NSA Director Paul M. Nakasone to give answers about how this flagrantly unconstitutional act took place.
