(JustPatriots.com)- MSNBC legal analyst Andrew Weissman claimed this week that Fox News host Tucker Carlson could have caused problems for Fox News in the Dominion lawsuit by presenting clips of surveillance footage from the January 6 riot.
While appearing on “Deadline: White House” Tuesday, the anti-Trump Resistance lawyer, who formerly served as Robert Mueller’s pitbull during the special counsel’s Russian collusion investigation, claimed that Tucker’s Monday night segment on the January 6 riot could be a problem for Fox News. He suggested that the lawyers representing Dominion in its $1.6 billion defamation suit, must have been “licking their chops” during Tucker’s broadcast.
He said Tucker Carlson will likely be called as a witness in the trial that begins next month and claimed that what Tucker said during Monday’s show was “misleading and phony.” He said Tucker “hurt himself” by saying things that the lawyers for Dominion could use as “fodder” during cross-examination.
Weissmann isn’t the only one losing his mind over Tucker Carlson featuring surveillance footage from the January 6 riot.
Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and former January 6 Select Committee members Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney have all blasted Fox News and Tucker Carlson for broadcasting the surveillance footage.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Senator Schumer called on Fox Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch to keep Tucker Carlson off the air that evening claiming “our democracy depends on it.”
Senator McConnell told reporters that it was a mistake for Fox News to air the surveillance footage.
In a segment on Tuesday, Carlson blasted Schumer and McConnell for their histrionic responses to Monday’s coverage, calling it “hysteria.”
Tucker pointed out that both Schumer and McConnell are “on the same side,” adding that it isn’t an issue of left versus right or Republican versus Democrat. He said the politicians in Washington have “shared interests.”
