Democrat Attorney Says Tucker Could Be Tried for Espionage

According to an attorney who works with Gov. Newsom, Ian Corzine, Tucker Carlson risks “bogus” prosecution under the Espionage Act for interviewing Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Carlson is taking a risk by interviewing Putin, Corzine said in a video posted to X on Wednesday. He said that while interviewing Putin may be legal, there may be “some big problems ahead” for Carlson, pointing to the “super broad” language of the Espionage Act, which prohibits Americans from spying on behalf of foreign countries.

Corzine claimed the language of the law “could be construed to prohibit any sharing of information with another country with intent to harm the U.S.”

Corzine said that Carlson sharing questions with Putin’s team before the interview or Putin’s team providing the Americans with evidence supporting the war with Ukraine could be covered by the Espionage Act. But he explained why the prosecution case would still be weak.

“Does Tucker Carlson have an intent to harm the U.S.?” he asked. “This is where the Espionage Act case against Tucker gets weaker, and it gets even more weak when you consider that the U.S. government is duty-bound to follow the dictates of the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution guarantees freedom of the press, and the U.S. Supreme Court has done everything it can to protect this provision and journalists.”

Corzine also said Carlson is ultimately taking a risk that he could be “prosecuted later on in time on bogus charges.”

This man is looking to make a name for himself, but he’s not the only Democrat hoping to persecute and prosecute Tucker Carlson.

And now a real journalist interviewing, however despicable he is, the leader of a foreign country is espionage? What about Joe Briben who never met a bribe he wouldn’t take, stole classified documents going back as far is 50 years, stored them in various unsecured locations, shared them with “who knows whom,” then sends our taxpayers’ money to foreign governments who are our enemies? Why isn’t he recognized as a traitor who has and still is committing espionage? Oh, I know, he’s just an old man with a failing memory who means well.

Same people who put in jail for praying and going to church. They all aspire to be guards at ovens at the gulag.

And what about the time Barbara Walters, democrat, interviewed Fidel Castro?

Only lunatic, or a mendacious lawyer (but I repeat myself), could construe an interview as espionage. The Dims’ lawfare reeks of the kangaroo courts of the Soviet Union. The left apparently is deeply infected with Stalinism.

This is typical Marxist Democrat thinking: arrest the journalists, censor the free flow of information but permit millions of illegal immigrants to come into our country so we can house, feed and take care of. This guy is shit.
