Former FBI Asst Director Rips 'Preposterous' Trump Team Raids: POTUS Faced 'Conspiracy' from the Beginning

GOP Rep. Blasts Sarah Sanders, Calls for Hearings on Stormy Daniels Payment


Tucker Carlson discussed the ongoing federal special investigation that recently ensnared personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Carlson mentioned a since-rescinded report that investigators taped phone calls on Cohen's telephone. The new account says the feds simply recorded phone numbers and similar data, but did not monitor the contents of the calls.

"We really don't know what the truth is," Carlson said.

He said that many news personalities see Cohen as a "shady" character, referencing some of his mannerisms.

"Shadiness is not a crime," he said. "Sounding like a 'Soprano' or working for Donald Trump is not a crime."

Carlson said Cohen's office and hotel room were raided and that items were taken without explanation by force.

"Imagine if that happened to you. Armed men arrived at your home and seized files... [and] never explained why they were doing it," he said.

He said that if the raids were simply a reaction to allegations of a campaign finance violation or a payoff to a porn star, it would be a "grotesque violation of civil liberties."
