Tucker Slams Dems' 'Entirely Partisan' Calls to Probe Russia's Election Meddling
Tonight, Tucker Carlson faced off with Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), one of more than 170 Democratic members of Congress who are calling for a bipartisan investigation of Russia's meddling in the U.S. presidential election.
Swalwell said the Protecting Our Democracy Act, which would give a 12-person committee 18 months to look into Russia's interference in the election, is intended to figure out what happened, why we were so vulnerable to hacking and how we can prevent it in the future.
Carlson noted that Democrats are calling this a bipartisan effort, despite the fact that no Republicans have signed on.
He said it's disingenuous for Democrats to say they want to depoliticize this issue, when their rhetoric has been entirely partisan.
He pointed out that Swalwell has called President-elect Donald Trump "Russia-friendly" and insinuated that our national defense will be compromised with Trump as commander-in-chief.
"That's an entirely partisan thing to say, because, of course, Obama was president while this hacking occurred."
