'Tucker Carlson said a top Democrat who has issued a drumbeat of warnings against making contact or facilitating possible collusion between Russian actors and the United States seems to have engaged in similar conduct himself.
Carlson said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, has repeatedly denounced alleged efforts by Russian actors to disseminate propaganda in the United States.
He said Schiff has also warned of a "Russian conspiracy" that led to the Kremlin-favored installment of then-New York City businessman Donald Trump as president of the United States.
Carlson appeared to reference video published by the Media Research Center that shows Schiff telling an audience that Russia is trying to promote the Bill of Rights - chiefly the Second Amendment - as a weapon against the American people.
“They also trumpeted the Second Amendment. Apparently the Russians are very big fans of our Second Amendment. They don’t particularly want a Second Amendment of their own but they are really glad that we have one. The Russians would be thrilled if we were doing nothing but killing each other every day, and sadly we are," Schiff said on the tape.
"The Russian conspiracy is so subtle, so crafty, such a bewildering Slavic hall of mirrors, that the people warning us about Russia are in fact key players," Carlson said. "The leaders of the witch hunt are witches."
Carlson said Schiff himself, however, appeared on Russian-owned news outlet RT America in 2013.'
