Tucker Carlson has been one of the very few mainstream media figures to even consider reporting on the alleged corruption scandals of Hunter Biden, first reported by the New York Post.
That article in the Post wasn’t exactly ironclad, thanks in no small part to the involvement of Rudy Giuliani, who, for months, has been doing more harm than good when it comes to President Trump’s reelection. In fact, Fox News had originally passed on the primary material itself, on account of the fact that nothing could truly be verified.
Tucker Carlson opted to cover the story, but from a different angle, interviewing a former Hunter Biden business partner at length after the man did authenticate at least one email detailed by the Post.
Now, however, Carlson is claiming that the only copy of some further Biden-damaging documents have been stolen from the mail on their way to him.
“There is always a lot going on that we don’t have time to get to on the air,” the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host told his audience, “but there is something specific going on behind the screens that we did feel like we should tell you about.
“On Monday of this week, we received from a source a collection of confidential documents related to the Biden family,” Carlson went on. “We believe they are authentic, they’re real and they’re damning.”
“We texted a producer in New York and asked him to send those documents to us in L.A, ” Carlson explained. “And he did that, so Monday afternoon of this week, he shipped the documents overnight to California with a large national carrier, a brand-name company that we’ve used, you’ve used, countless times with never a single problem.”
But the documents never arrived in Los Angeles, Carlson said.
“Tuesday morning we received word from the shipping company that our package had been opened and the contents were missing. The documents had disappeared.”
Twitter users weren’t so sure about the story, however, and festooned Carlson online.
UPDATE 1:35pm: UPS has located the contents of the missing package and are working to return them to Tucker Carlson.
