Co-hosts of “The View” on Monday suggested the Department of Justice investigate Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for allegedly being “Russian propagandists” and “shilling” for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The segment began with a video clip showing comments Carlson and Gabbard recently made regarding the Russian war on Ukraine. They have each alleged that the U.S. is funding biological laboratories in Ukraine. Carlson has also claimed that American Democrats have “mandated” that U.S. citizens hate Putin.
Host Ana Navarro said that the DOJ should probe Carlson and Gabbard, claiming that they are “foreign asset[s] to a dictator.”
“I think DOJ, in the same way that it is setting up a task force to investigate [Russian] oligarchs, should look into people who are Russian propagandists and shilling for Putin,” Navarro said. “If you are a foreign asset to a dictator, it should be investigated.”
