Tucker Carlson’s Insane Theory that Feds Recruited Pence in a Botched Plot to Take Down Trump

The epidemic of wayward classified documents is spreading like wildfire. It began with Donald Trump being caught with hundreds of such documents at his Mar-a-Lago hotel/home. Then President Biden came forward voluntarily to disclose that his lawyers had found a few documents at his Delaware abode. And most recently, former VP Mike Pence joined the club.

There are stark differences in the details of these revelations. Most notable is the fact that both Biden and Pence discovered the mishandled materials, that they claim were taken inadvertently, and immediately notified the proper authorities. Trump, on the other hand, admits to having taken the documents deliberately, lied to the FBI about having them, and refused to return them.

However, you have to credit Tucker Carlson of Fox News for concocting the most preposterous conspiracy theories about these affairs. On the Tuesday night episode of his primetime crackpottery, Carlson dived head first into an empty pool in a frantic attempt pollute the news cycle with utter nonsense. With a chyron declaring that “Mike Pence Swoops in to Save Joe Biden,” Tucker spun that…

“Just days ago, Mike Pence sent his personal attorney to search his family’s home in Carmel, Indiana, for classified documents. Now, if Mike Pence didn’t think he had classified documents, why would he send his lawyer to go look for classified documents? We can’t say for certain, but it’s entirely possible – in fact, it’s likely – that Mike Pence was asked to do this by federal prosecutors who are trying to build a case against his old boss, Donald Trump.

“Now, the point would be to show that not every federal official walks off with state secrets. Donald Trump was uniquely evil in that regard, as in so many others. See, Mike Pence didn’t do it. So if that was the plan – and we suspect that it was – it backfired spectacularly because Mike Pence’s lawyer promptly discovered classified documents. He immediately loaded these documents into his car and drove them back to Washington to hand them over to authorities.”

Wow. Just WOW! Carlson is puzzled that, after all the hoopla about Trump and Biden, Pence would seek to ascertain if he were similarly susceptible to the classified docs melodrama. Turns out he was, so it was a good call. But from Carlson’s perverse perspective there was more to the story. He asserted, without any factual basis, that it was “likely” that Pence had been recruited by federal prosecutors “to build a case against his old boss, Donald Trump.”

Carlson’s theory, like almost everything that he says (see his recent pro-cancer advocacy of tobacco), doesn’t hold water. Why would the discovery of classified documents at Pence’s home in Indiana have any bearing on the legal consequences for Trump? Trump remains at risk for his purposeful purloining of sensitive national security materials, and for his obstruction and dishonesty, regardless of whether or not anything was found at Pence’s home.

What’s more, Carlson’s conspiratorial contrivance was buried in a broader bucket of bullshittery that involved – who else? – Hunter Biden. Carlson cited a report in Rupert Murdoch’s slimy New York Post that he said proves that…

“Hunter Biden had classified information in his possession. Almost certainly that came from his father, then the vice president. And that he used that information to make piles of money for the Biden family while working at a fake job in Ukraine.”

Of course, there is absolutely no evidence of anything remotely resembling that accusation in the New York Post or anywhere else. Carlson just made it up. Which is typical for a deceitful propagandist whose own Fox News lawyers defended him – successfully – in a defamation lawsuit by arguing that “no reasonable person” would take him seriously. And even Tucker has a rather insightful opinion of himself. He began Tuesday’s segment saying that…

“A lot of what you read at this point feels not like news, but instead, like some highly curated version of reality crafted to manipulate you.”

Yep. That’s exactly what it feels like when watching Tucker Carlson and most everything else on Fox News. It was nice of him to point it out.

  1. Somehow, i knew this Hunter Biden thing would come up in the conversations between these two rabid baboons. And there are actually millions of dumbasses that believe this crap from Fox Spews and Mr. Ignorant himself, Carlson Tucker..

    • John, back again. My family should know that if they don’t want me to concentrate on politics, they should stop watching the rabble rousers on Fox. For now, since they saw fit to watch Mr. Third Ignorant on tv last night, you might add Jesse Watters to your list of rabid baboons. And why do these loudmouth crackpots insist on using the facial contortions of a Cheshire Cat? Do they feel that it will rope in even more of their deranged following? Watters was defending Kevin McCarthy who obtained his job as speaker by caving into votes received. from Republican extremists in the House. By kicking off Democrats Schiff, Swalwell. Omar from Committee assignments, and replacing them with such crackpots as Marjorie Taylor Greene and Gosar, both of whom should not be within hundreds of miles of government. What does McCarthy want? Popularity or notoriety.

      • I am so glad to see you are back on here, i was feeling a bit sad not seeing you here for the past 2 or 3 days. I am happy that no one in my house watches this comedy-horror show called Fox Spews. That Kevin McCarthy is almost as bad as TUMP is. The Rethuglican members of the House of Representatives are hell bent on trying to get their Fascist/ Nazi bills established that will never get passed by the Democrat majority Senate. And Biden has already said he will veto any of their Nazi bills that goes against our Democracy. These deranged asshats, Marjorie Traitor Goon, Gosar, and that tramp Lauren Boebert most certainly don’t need to be within 100 miles of the Federal Government, they should be in Russia cleaning filthy toilets and living in a rotten, run down old shack with no running water and a dirt floor. That is exactly where people like those evil, deranged, despicable need to be. The one and only reason that Shiff, Swalwell and Omar were kicked off from their Committee assignments is out of pure spite and revenge against them because they are so outspoken about the King baboon Donald TUMP. They are full of hate and evil. So glad you are back, Judy..
