Ex-FBI Assistant Director Accuses Tucker Carlson Of Aiding And Abetting Terrorism

Frank Figliuzzi said the Fox News personality's parroting of Russian propaganda has "gone way beyond free speech."

Frank Figliuzzi, the FBI’s former assistant director for counterintelligence, this week torched Tucker Carlson for pushing pro-Russian talking points on his prime time Fox News show.

Figliuzzi, during an appearance on the Really American PAC’s “Talking Heads” show, said Carlson’s on-air parroting of Kremlin propaganda before and during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has “gone way beyond free speech.”

Most recently, Carlson suggested that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy should be audited before the U.S. sends more aid to the country.

“I took an oath of office when I became an FBI agent to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution,” said Figliuzzi. “That means I was willing to risk my life for somebody like Tucker Carlson’s right to free speech.”

But Putin is committing war crimes and terrorism in Ukraine, and “those who aid and abet him are aiding and abetting terrorism,” he continued.

And with clips of Carlson’s comments being broadcast by Russia’s state media, Figliuzzi said “you’ve got to stop and say, wait a minute, this isn’t free speech anymore. This is now being our own people deliberately being used by an enemy against us.”
