Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives will be investigating the nation’s top spy team, the National Security Agency, which has been accused of “politicization” after Fox News host Tucker Carlson credibly charged the Biden-directed government operation has been spying on his personal emails.

The Washington Examiner reported Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the House minority leader, told GOP members of the Intelligence Committee to review the NSA.

He said the Carlson case was just the latest issue to raise concerns, and others date back to Biden’s decision to remove Michael Ellis, a top NSA lawyer appointed by President Trump.

“Earlier this year, I sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Austin expressing concern over the politicization of the agency through the sidelining of Michael Ellis as NSA general counsel,” the GOP leader said in a statement. “I asked that Mr. Ellis be reinstated and expressed my concern regarding undue political influence in NSA placing Mr. Ellis on administrative leave.”

He said the NSA cannot be used as a “political instrument.”

He explained in other situations, the agency “refused” to deliver information requested by the Republican members of the Intel committee.

Carlson, this week, said he’d been contacted by a whistleblower who revealed the NSA was spying on his communications in a plan to selectively release information to try to get the show removed.

Then Carlson doubled down, warning that Biden’s operatives could come “after you.”

Carlson, host of the most-watched cable news show in the United States, confirmed Monday to his audience that Biden’s NSA spied on him electronically.

That, he explained, is a crime under federal law.
