The GOP is finally doing something to fight back.
GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called for an investigation into the NSA.
This comes just days after Tucker announced he was being spied on.
“Although NSA publicly denied targeting [Tucker] Carlson, I have serious questions regarding this matter that must be answered.”

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on why he’s asked House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Ranking Member Devin Nunes (CA-22) to investigate the National Security Agency:
“For the past several months, I have seen a disturbing trend at the National Security Agency.
“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. I asked that Mr. Ellis be reinstated and expressed my concern regarding undue political influence in NSA placing Mr. Ellis on administrative leave.
“Separately, it has recently come to my attention that NSA has refused to deliver information requested by the Republican Members on the House Intelligence Committee who are trying to fulfill their oversight responsibilities.
“Now, there is a public report that NSA read the emails of Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Although NSA publicly denied targeting Carlson, I have serious questions regarding this matter that must be answered.
“Given this disturbing trend, I’ve asked HPSCI Ranking Member Devin Nunes to investigate and find answers on behalf of the American people. The NSA cannot be used as a political instrument, and House Republicans will ensure accountability and transparency.”
