Tucker Carlson criticized Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee for lofty rhetoric against critics and those who wanted the FISA memo to be declassified.

Carlson said Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell of California attacked those who wanted the Republican chairman of the committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), to release the memo.

He said Americans must be able to trust that their government and intelligence agencies have not "misused power," calling such a possibility a "disaster in a democracy."

"Release the documents, all the relevant documents," Carlson said. "Let the rest of us decide what they mean."

He said Schiff roughly characterized the memo as a "deadly threat to America," adding that the real reason for Schiff's apprehension is that the memo could embarrass him and his party.

Carlson later played tape of Schiff appearing to say that casting a pall of doubt over the federal law enforcement agencies could lead to a domestic attack of some sort.

Schiff gave an example of a neighbor worried about their own identity being examined failing to contact the FBI when a neighbor who does not have a lawn purchases large amounts of fertilizer.

Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh used fertilizer - with the explosive ingredient ammonium nitrate - to take down the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and kill more than 160 people in 1995.

"This is demented," Carlson said, calling such rhetoric Schiff and Swalwell's best attempt to negate the results of an election they do not yet accept.

He said the men are sounding like former Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.), whose "red scare" led to numerous people being accused of acting as Soviet agents, thereby destroying their reputations.
