Tucker Carlson attacked the mainstream media as well as the intelligence community on Fox News Tuesday as he claimed American institutions are “deeply corrupt.”

The Daily Caller reports Tucker mocked the critics of President Trump by saying “Wiretapping? Come on. That’s tin foil hat stuff, it’s nuts!” in a sarcastic voice.

“Now, in another time with more trustworthy institutions that would have been the end of the story. But we live in a country with deeply corrupt institutions…” Tucker continued.

“According to a new report from CNN, Paul Manafort who for a time last year was Trump’s campaign chairman was wiretapped by the federal government both before and after the election,” Tucker explained. “Manafort, it ought to be noted, had an apartment inside Trump Tower during that time so it’s virtually certain that surveillance of him would have included other members of the Trump campaign staff, maybe Trump himself.”

The report Tucker is referencing was written by CNN. CNN admits that Manafort was wiretapped by the government before the election, leading many to believe that the President’s tweet in March referring to him being wiretapped, could actually be true.

    I watched this as it played last night. Tucker is a national treasure, and I am surprised he is allowed to continue by the corrupt media. Time to go back to Seth Rich, Tucker and Hannity!

    What he says is true, and Democrats should be ashamed for not being more concerned about it.

    The IRS, FBI, and the DOJ have proven to be partisan entities, favoring the party of Big Government. What is that a recipe for???

      Concerned? The democrat party is 100% for any damage they can do Trump. Their goal is socialism in America and they have had this goal since the 60’s and 70’s. In a 1863 congressional record there is inserted the goal of the USSR for installing communism which is the same thing as socialism with a different name only. It lists 45 things to do and the democrat party is doing at LEAST 35 of them maybe as many as 40. bernie sanders health plan – medicare for all – is part of it. Get a grip on health and you can much more easily control the people.

    The entire establishment, both DEM and REP were against Trump winning the election…and now that he’s president, they are colluding to bring him down anyway they can. If there was ever one president that can handle this onslaught, it’s Trump.

    Tucker : “Now, in another time with more trustworthy institutions that would have been the end of the story…”

    What time might that be, Tucker?
    Eerily ambiguous.

    Yes, Carlson, we do live in a deeply corrupted nation. It was always corrupt. However the last administration took corruption to levels never before seen! There are many, many of these people firmly entrenched still. McMaster is a good example. He made sure Susan Rice kept FULL security clearance. Why would a private citizen need this? Kelly, just as bad. What’s going on with Mueller is pretty much unconstitutional in my eyes. I could fill this board up. Sessions reinstated Civil Assests Forfeiture! Yet he does nothing about Clinton!
