(PresidentialHill.com)- Because Twitter employs people who have previously worked for specific U.S. government agencies, Tucker Carlson, a host on Fox News, claimed that the company has been acting as a ward of the deep state.
On Tuesday, Carlson even urged the newly appointed Twitter CEO Elon Musk to disclose details regarding these employees’ company-related actions, which he claimed would support his claim.
Carlson speculated, asking if you were to staff a social media site, what number of spies would you employ?
Most likely none, he surmised, because spy activities have no bearing on a social media company’s mission. And you wouldn’t need to hire any opera singers, he concluded snarkily. “Twitter seemed to require a lot of spies for some reason,” he said.
Tucker continued by saying that “at least 15 of these people” and possibly many more “were absolutely loaded with people who once did intel work for government agencies” in Twitter’s upper management ranks.
James Baker, the organization’s former deputy general counsel, was mentioned as having worked for the FBI. As evidence that the company is rife with spies who have worked for the bureau and other organizations like the CIA and NSA. Carlson then named a few more Twitter employees who had previously worked for the government.
Carlson said that a former Twitter employee claimed that foreign government “operatives” worked at the company and had access to private user data.
“…It wasn’t just American intel officers that found a home at Twitter.”
Carlson turned to look at Musk.
“Elon Musk was recently questioned regarding the number of former FBI agents Twitter employs. But he remained silent. Everything is pretty odd.”
Then he added, “Twitter has been collaborating with the government’s intelligence community.” “Twitter’s internal documents will contain information about a wide range of topics if it has acted as the arm of government intelligence agencies, which it has undoubtedly done.”
Carlson said that Musk might have access to data that will purportedly demonstrate that Twitter acted on behalf of the government, and he expressed a desire to see that information.
The Fox host said that the most extensive collection of classified information to ever be in private hands is now under Elon Musk’s control,
“Up to this point, we haven’t seen much of it, and you have to wonder why. Let’s hope that we do.”
