Republican Matt Gaetz wants an investigation into the NSA over spying allegations, which were brought to the public’s attention on Monday night by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. The NSA spying against Americans has been an ongoing problem that hopefully has reached a turning point.
“The most watched cable news host has been stating for the last several nights that the NSA has been monitoring his communications. I am equally outraged over spying whether it is upon the media I like or the media I destest. ” Gatez said at US House Judiciary Hearing on Wednesday on the “Secrecy Orders and Prosecuting Leaks: Potential Legislative Responses to Deter Prosecutorial Abuse of Power.”
Key Point: The Biden administration is alarming people with the rapid escalation of Government authority to spy on and detain Americans over new definitions of “domestic terrorissm” which seem to be defined by well-funded and leveraged Marxist social justice movements.
“I believe that the DOJ and the Intelligence committee should not spy on and threaten the media, our staff, or the American people for politics. Biden says he would not allow the weaponization of spying on the news media,” Gaetz told the House Committee.

The Bottom line is that Gaetz is suspicious of the NSA and referred to their defense of spying on Carlson in their recent statement about the matter.
Gaetz felt that the statement did not deny they were spying on Carlson and referred to the MO of how they “catch people up” who they want to get information on by finding a reason to spy. The FISA court was intended to prevent the NSA from such practices. Still, as evidenced during the administration of Donald J. Trump, the safety protocols to protect Americans have been hijacked by political power-seekers who have designed go-around to the system and who have left journalists and others in danger of the powerful US Government.
“This is functionally an admission,” Gaetz said. “Which allegation are they talking about? There is no denying that they were not monitoring Carlson, even if he is not the target. This is how they caught up with Carter Page to go after Trump. They only say they are not trying to get his show off the air.
The NSA lied to us already; they said there was no bulk collection of American data. There is a bulk collection. They can not police themselves. This is bi-partisiand. We need an Inspector General investigation into what has happened with Tucker Carlson,” Gatez said.
These denials are very couched and specific, don’t you think? https://t.co/7RVZIPdsdD

Going Down A Rabbit Hole:
The Biden administration has made bold moves this month to lay out what appears to be a plan of action to spy upon and to detain Americans, as domestic terrorists, for doing no more than reporting on things that are unfavorable to the Biden Administration. A report was released in early June that should shock Americans:
People who were arrested for being at the US Capitol on Jan. 6th are still being detained in DC prisons and under inhumane solitary confinement as reported here:
