Fox News host Tucker Carlson says there’s ample evidence suggesting that left-wing cable news network CNN “openly colluded” with former special counsel Robert Mueller during his failed Russia collusion investigation.
Exhibit A: CNN had a news crew on the ground to record the pre-dawn raid on Roger Stone’s Florida home in January. How did CNN know that Stone would be arrested at dawn that morning unless they were tipped off by someone on the Mueller team? Carlson wondered.
“[Jeff] Zucker’s puppets on the channel openly colluded with Robert Mueller’s prosecutors,” Carlson said (video below). “For one example, Mueller’s team clearly tipped off CNN before arresting Roger Stone at his home in Florida. There was a CNN crew on the scene before dawn to humiliate Stone.”
During the past two years, countless other anti-Trump tidbits from the Mueller probe were leaked to CNN, so it’s laughable that CNN would even try to deny this.
Carlson also noted that CNN was the biggest promoter of the “absurd Russia hoax,” which was covered around the clock for the past three years in a bid to bolster the network’s dismal ratings.
“Believe it or not, CNN was once a semi-serious news network. Some of us used to work there,” Carlson said. (Tucker Carlson worked at CNN from 2000 to 2005.)
He continued: “Then, a former entertainment producer named Jeffrey Zucker took over the place. Zucker has long aspired to run for office as a Democrat. He has bragged about it! And so, he decided to use CNN as his personal mouthpiece for political purposes.”

Basically, Tucker says CNN’s thin veneer as an “objective news” outlet changed dramatically once Zucker (the former executive produce of NBC’s Today Show) took over in 2013. Since then, CNN’s “news” division has morphed into the PR wing of the Democratic Party.
Zucker despises President Trump, and has ordered the network to flood the airwaves with nonstop negative coverage of Trump.
After an initial “Trump bump” in 2017, Zucker’s continuing virulent anti-Trump agenda has caused CNN’s ratings to plunge. Why? Because the coverage defies credulity.
Republican Congressman Chris Stewart asked Robert Mueller during his Congressional hearing if he or anyone on his team had tipped off CNN about the pre-dawn raid on Roger Stone’s home.
In response, Mueller stammered: “Uh, I’m not going to speak to that.”
Congressman Stewart says millions of Americans were frustrated by Mueller’s refusal to answer such a straightforward question.
“It’s a simple question. I think it was important for people to know,” Stewart said. “Were individuals within the Special Counsel leaking information?”
Stewart also pointed out that if the Mueller team’s media leaks weren’t biased, the intel that was leaked would have been a mixed bag of both positive and negative information about Trump. But that was never the case.
“In every one of these cases, all 25 of them, [the information that was leaked to the media] was always detrimental to the President,” Stewart said. “It was always embarrassing and meant to diminish him. They never leaked anything that exonerated him. It was always negative information.”
Tucker also noted with shock that the judge in the Roger Stone case has forbidden him to speak to the media to defend himself.
“This nutcase judge has now told Roger Stone that if he speaks up in his own defense, he will go to prison,” Carlson said. “He’s not allowed to talk in public at all! It’s clear that the government was leaking information against him. His First Amendment rights are null and void, but the government can leak to destroy his reputation? What country is this?”
Reminder: In June 2017, a veteran CNN producer admitted that CNN was pushing the bogus Russia collusion hoax in a bid for ratings.

John Bonifield —who has worked at CNN for over 15 years — said the network’s anti-Trump CEO, Jeff Zucker, relentlessly pushed the fake Trump-Russia narrative even though there was no concrete proof.
“Trump is good for business!” he said. “[The Russia collusion narrative is] mostly bullsh*t. We don’t have any giant proof.”
Bonifield added: “The president is probably right to say, ‘Look you are witch-hunting me. You have no smoking gun. You have no real proof.’”
