Carlson Defends Claim FBI Plotted Capitol Insurrection

Media Matters has the transcript:

Well, last night, clips from our show began to circulate on social media. The tech monopolies, which helped get Joe Biden elected, continue to work closely with the administration to control the news and information that you are allowed to see. Because it’s America, right?

Well, this piece of news, the one on our show last night was a problem for them so they tried to make it go away. Twitter appended the following note to our post last night. “Federal law does not permit cooperating witnesses or informants to be charged with conspiracy, despite a baseless suggestion by Tucker Carlson that some co-conspirators on the January 6th attack were not charged because they were undercover FBI agents.”

Let’s think about this. Now, leave aside for a second the most obvious question that arises from the statement, which is, how would Twitter, which is a media company — not as far as we know, a law enforcement agency — be able to confirm our reporting last night was “baseless.” How would they know that? Does Twitter somehow have access to the FBI’s personnel files? We don’t know, we hope someone finds out.
