Fox News’ Tucker Carlson did not seem to be buying the explanation that UPS gave about recovered Biden documents that had gone missing in a shipment.
The Fox News host informed his viewers Thursday that the materials, which were allegedly related to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter, had been found by the delivery company after previously reporting that they had vanished en route to him in Los Angeles as he prepared to interview former Biden business associate, Tony Bobulinski.
“Last night we told you about a pretty weird experience we had,” Carlson said in a monologue on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday.
“Somewhere along the way the contents of that package disappeared and inside it was a flash drive that contained primary documents pertaining to the Biden family,” he added. “And of course, we made a copy of those files before we sent them, because we’re careful.”

“We get a lot of documents from a lot of different sources all the time, but that’s especially true in election years. Before we put them on the air, we have to determine first whether they’re real — they were real — whether they’re newsworthy and whether it’s legal to show them. We wanted to assess what we had and we’re still assessing it,” Carlson explained.
“But the point is, the package never arrived,” Carlson recapped.
“Proprietary reporting on the Biden family, documents sent between journalists by supposedly secure overnight mail, disappeared. They vanished on the same day we were conducting a heavily-publicized interview based in part on documents from the Biden family,” he said.
“Unfortunately, we still don’t know what happened. This morning, UPS issued a press release announcing they had found our flash drive and boasting about their customer service,” he continued, noting the company’s statement.
While the Fox News host acknowledged that “UPS is a reliable company,” he still faulted them for the incident.
“They rarely lose anything…that’s why we use them in the first place. And yet they lost our Biden documents. How? UPS won’t tell us how,” he said. “We spent a lot of the day talking to executives there who claimed that the flash drive was found on Monday night by an hourly employee in the UPS building on 43rd Street in Manhattan and suggested it may have been sitting on the floor there.”
“They couldn’t prove that because remarkably, in a room where millions of high-value packages are handled, there are no security cameras. That’s what they told us,” Carlson continued.
“UPS says the employee who found our flash drive simply dropped it on top of the supervisor’s desk. Our documents sat there undiscovered for more than 24 hours until we announced on television that they were missing. That’s their story,” he said, adding that questions still remain.
Carlson told his audience that they spent “hours” in discussions with the company but still did not get satisfactory responses.
“How did our flash drive get separated from the package that we sent it in? That seemed like something worth knowing. The envelope was securely sealed, and we know that…UPS does not dispute that. Was the package torn open accidentally by a machine? That seems unlikely and UPS says that almost never happens,” he said.
“So we are left with the obvious explanation: Someone, for some reason, opened our package and removed a flash drive containing documents that were damaging to the Biden family,” Carlson concluded.
“We would love to know would do that and why. It would be helpful to see the envelope itself, but UPS says we can’t because they threw it away. So here we are, we got our flash drive back today, and that’s great. What we’d really like are some answers.”
Carlson went on to note that the Fox News show has opted not to share a “lot of documents about Hunter Biden’s personal life” that it has received, citing the fact that the former vice president’s son is not the one running for office. He revealed that he once knew the younger Biden well as they lived near each other in Washington and that he never thought of him as a “bad person,” just someone who lost control of the demons that plagued him.
“It’s probably too strong to say we feel sorry for Hunter Biden,” Carlson concluded. “But the point is that pounding on a man, jumping on, piling on when he’s already down is something that we don’t want to be involved in.”
