Fox News reporter calls Tucker Carlson a liar over Sec of Defense threat. Here’s how that went.

Tucker Carlson raised eyebrows with a claim that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin threatened lawmakers over Ukraine funding and now a Fox News reporter is calling him a liar.

According to Carlson, Austin addressed House members in a classified briefing as the regime intensified its arm-twisting over the $60 million Christmas gift to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the notoriously corrupt country, and according to Carlson, told them that if they didn’t approve the money, that their own families would be sent off to fight the Russians.

‘The Biden administration is openly threatening Americans over Ukraine. In a classified briefing in the House yesterday, defense secretary Lloyd Austin informed members that if they don’t appropriate more money for Zelensky, ‘we’ll send your uncles, cousins and sons to fight Russia. ‘Pay the oligarchs or we’ll kill your kids,” Carlson wrote on X.

But Fox News chief national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin, whose beat is the Pentagon, rejected the outrageous claim which she said was “100% not true” in her own post to X, citing two anonymous sources.

“This characterization of Austin’s remarks is 100 percent not true, acc to two sources who were in the briefings. Austin warned that it is not hyperbole to say Putin won’t stop at Ukraine. If he enters NATO territory US troops could be called to fight; cheaper to fund Ukraine now,” she stated.

Before Carlson’s explosive tweet alleging that the “woke” SECDEF threatened members of Congress, Austin’s boss, President Joe Biden fumed about the stalled aid package while suggesting that American troops would be marched off to Eastern Europe to fight the Russians as replacements for the cheap Ukrainian cannon fodder.

The accusation that Carlson is lying coming from a reporter who works for his former employer had Griffin taking heavy fire from X users.

“How could Washington possibly send tens of billions more to sleazy oligarchs in Ukraine now that the whole enterprise has been revealed as a fruitless, corrupt and incredibly destructive disaster?” Carlson asked this week. “Because that’s what they always do.”

A fierce critic of the Biden regime’s proxy war against Russia, Carlson has been at odds with the regime as well as his ex-employer which is all-in on Ukraine along with every other mainstream media outlet.
