Fiery 'You're Going Insane on TV Right Now': Tucker Battles Clinton Adviser on Trump-Russia
Tucker Carlson debated former Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein regarding whether former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was a "foreign agent" working on behalf of another nation while advising President Donald Trump.
Carlson appeared to reference a report from the Washington Times that said BuzzFeed, which published the Russia dossier, purportedly hired a former White House official to try to corroborate the salacious details within.
He asked Goodstein why anyone would believe contents of the dossier which have yet to be formally proven accurate, as well as his characterization of Flynn.
Goodstein said there are substantive allegations that the Russians aided Trump to help him win the 2016 election.
"Michael Flynn was a foreign agent... of Turkey," Goodstein said, adding that there are wiretaps detailing conversations the retired general had with Russian envoy Sergey Kislyak.
He told Carlson that Flynn assured Kislyak prior to Trump's inauguration that there would be no further sanctions against Russia.
Carlson said whether or not Trump planned to enforce stricter sanctions on Russia is a political matter.
"Are you allowed to have a different view on sanctions than the one Barack Obama had... or is that criminal?" Carlson asked.
"Do you realize that you're going insane on TV right now?" he asked.
