It seems like Tucker Carlson is following in the footsteps of his mother network Fox News on flipping against President Donald Trump after the Conservatives helped them with their ratings for the past four years.
On Thursday’s episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host called out one of Trump’s lawyers, Sidney Powell, for not showing obtained evidence on his show for alleged voter fraud.
Earlier this week, the Trump campaign lawyers, including Rudy Giuliani and Powell held a press conference, where they dropped a bombshell including hundreds of affidavits from witnesses about the 2020 election fraud in favor of Biden, which the lawyers did not read in public.
“We took Sidney Powell seriously. We had no intention of fighting with her, we’ve always respected her work,” Carlson said.
“We simply wanted to see the details. How could you not want to see them? So we invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week, actually, and listened quietly the whole time at rapt attention. That’s a big story. But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests, polite requests. Not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her.”
Being a top-caliber lawyer in the country, Sidney Powell is not stupid enough to throw away her name and credibility just for a hoax. Besides, she should show these proofs before the court first, not the media.

I understand that Tucker is trying to be a journalist but I also understand why Sidney Powell wouldn’t do the interview.

Shes not required to present any evidence to Fox News or any other “media” source.
Let’s see what happens in court.
Sorry Tucker, but having high ratings doesn’t make you the law, not everyone has to come to your show and give you what you ask.

Sidney Powell doesn’t owe Tucker Carlson or Fox News a damn thing! Why would she show her evidence so the fake news media can pick it apart. She has the goods. She told us she doesn’t say anything she can’t back up.

I’m very disappointed in Tucker tonight! He offered Sidney Powell a spot to plead her case against Dominion!
But, she wouldn’t send Tucker her evidence. So no Sidney!
She’s supposed to send you her evidence as a condition to appear? You’re a Judge now Tucker?@TuckerCarlson
