USA (bbabo.net), - Once Tucker Carlson discovered that the US government and its intelligence agencies, the NSA and CIA, were targeting American citizens, he became determined to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin. An American journalist stated this on CNBC.
According to Tucker Carlson, he tried to interview Putin for three years.
“The US government prevented me from doing this by spying on my communications and leaking them to The New York Times. So I tried to do this, but my country's intelligence agencies were working against me illegally, and this angered me. Because I am an American citizen, I am 54 years old, I pay taxes, I obey the law. And it’s hard to believe that in the America I grew up in, the government and its intelligence agencies, the NSA and the CIA, which have always been focused on external enemies, will be turned against American citizens.
I was shocked by this and I was furious about it. And once I discovered that this was actually happening, once I was convinced of it and they themselves admitted it, I became determined, maniacally committed to the idea of doing this interview.
Not only because I want to know what Vladimir Putin is like and what he thinks about a war that is rebooting the world and causing serious damage to the economy of my country, but also because they told me that I cannot do it, based on illegal means and without a really clearly formulated justification,” said Carlson, as quoted by the Pool No. 3 telegram channel.
As bbabo.net reported yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s interview with American journalist Tucker Carlson has already received about a billion views across all sources. This was stated on the air of the “Evening with Vladimir Solovyov” program on the Rossiya-1 TV channel by the chief editor of the Rossiya Segodnya media group and the RT TV channel, Margarita Simonyan.
“I asked my colleagues to count. This is complex and difficult because you need to take all the languages, all the sources in which it was published, all the views in all these sources. I assure you that this figure is about a billion,” Simonyan said.
As bbabo.net reported, press secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov in an interview with the “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin” said that the Russian President quickly agreed to an interview with American journalist Tucker Carlson. The fragment was published by journalist Pavel Zarubin in his Telegram channel. According to Peskov, Carlson himself approached Vladimir Putin’s administration with a corresponding proposal.
Let us recall that the Ukrainian lobbyist, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, whose efforts disrupted the Istanbul peace negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow, took advantage of Tucker Carlson’s interview with Vladimir Putin to once again ask for money for Ukraine from gullible Americans. Johnson outlined his reasons in a column for the Daily Mail.
“Putin's interview with his servile puppet Tucker Carlson was straight out of Hitler's script. I pray that the Americans will unravel this unholy charade,” is how Johnson titled his next creation.
bbabo.net recalls that Putin’s long interview with Carlson appeared on the Internet on the night of February 9. This is a two-hour conversation, a significant part of which is devoted to the conflict in Ukraine and Russian-American relations, as well as the confrontation between Moscow and NATO. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz also managed to comment on the interview, although for some reason he found it “ridiculous.”
