— Tucker Carlson (@TuckerCarlson) October 31, 2017
Tucker began his segment as per the Daily Wire:
“Tony Podesta resigned as head of his company,” Carlson said. “His excuse? Us. That’s right. He blamed us. In his parting statement, Podesta said this, quote, ‘It is impossible to run a public affairs firm by Fox News and the right-wing media.'”
“Well, Podesta isn’t just complaining about us — he’s threatening us,. “This afternoon, we got a letter from Geoff Garinther. It’s a lawyer with Venable LLP, a big law firm here in D.C. The letter demands that this show, quote, ‘immediately cease and desist disseminating false and misleading reports about Mr. Podesta and the Podesta Group. It demands we retract and delete all our prior reporting on the Podesta Group and warns if we don’t do this, quote, ‘Mr. Podesta may pursue legal action, including for damages, in order to fully protect his rights,’ ” Carlson said.
“Podesta’s lawyer wasn’t trying to inform us of anything, but to threaten us — to shut down our reporting on his client,” Carlson said. “One lawyer we talked to earlier today said the Podesta people have used this tactic with others before. It’s common — it’s an effort to use fear to control press coverage. We are not intimidated. We have ample evidence from Mueller’s indictment [and] from a number of confidential sources to paint a pretty clear picture of exactly what the Podesta Group was doing for years here in Washington.” We’ll let the facts speak for themselves,” he concluded.
“And we’re confident the Mueller investigation will be revealing a lot more about Tony Podesta’s lobbying practices in the near future.” – The Daily Wire
