Tucker Carlson has accused the NSA, National Security Agency, of spying on him and in return the agency released a statement in the form of a tweet denying the accusation. The tweet, see below, has blocked all replies and many have concern that Carlson may be right when he says the agency is spying on him.
Tucker Carlson says a whistleblower told him that he is being spied on by the NSA and that he filed a FOIA request for information:

In 2016 the FBI engaged in a highly dubious mission to spy on the Trump campaign, this resulted in the FBI lying to FISA court in order to obtain warrants in order to get communications from Trump team members. The NSA was also exposed by Edward Snowden for spying on American citizens. These things considered it should not come as a surprise that the government agency may spy on political voices such as Tucker Carlson.
