Over the years we have come to find out that Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is a bit of a… Well… Liar. And I don’t just mean all the baseless and categorically incorrect claims he makes about everything from vaccines and mask-wearing to the President and the election on his Fox segment. It seems Tucker’s avoidance of the truth goes further than that. Deeper, if you will, to a more personal level that’s not always seen on TV.
Like the time we reported that Tucker allegedly told some Fox guests that he didn’t even vote for Donald Trump, and no one could really tell if he was joking or not.
And now it seems that Carlson may be hiding the truth once again, this time about his real feelings on the President’s son, Hunter Biden.
Recently, we reported that Trump-loving, GOP lawyer Lin Wood released a recording of what was alleged to be a phone conversation between himself and former national security advisor Michael Flynn, in which the voice allegedly belonging to General Flynn admits that he doesn’t actually believe all those batshit crazy QAnon conspiracies that he’s regularly touting in public.
Now it seems Lin has set his sights on one of Fox News’ most notable talking heads.

Taking to the messaging platform Telegram recently, Wood posted a screenshot of what he claims is a 2014 email exchange between Fox’s Tucker Carlson and President Biden’s son Hunter. The screenshot of the alleged email, which we absolutely cannot verify the authenticity of, appears to show a conversation between the two, in which Carlson is heaping his praises on Hunter, thanking Biden for penning a letter of recommendation for his son to Georgetown University.
“Hunter! I can’t thank you enough for writing that letter to Georgetown on Buckley’s behalf. So nice of you. I know it’ll help,” the screenshot supposedly showing the 2014 email conversation between Hunter and Tucker reads. “Hope you’re great and we can all get dinner soon.”
In the email, a response that is purported to be from Hunter Biden reads, “Hey buddy- I need Buckley’s CV if you have one handy- Thanks[.]”
“Of course,” Tucker allegedly responded. “Getting on a plane now but I’ll ask Susie to send it right away. Thanks again. It’s really nice of you to do this.”
Hunter Biden has, as we’re all well aware, been a favorite target of Tucker Carlson’s since pretty much the moment his father announced his candidacy for President of the United States. Tucker, along with the rest of Fox News, regularly spew conspiracy theories about the President’s son, especially the controversial, infamous alleged laptop.
Author, journalist, and popular debunker for the likes of CNN, WaPo, and the NYT, Mike Rothschild gave a thorough assessment of Wood’s recent postings on Telegram.
In an extended Twitter thread on the topic of Wood’s recent revelations, Rothschild wrote, “People have been asking me if this is real, and I have no reason to suspect it’s not. Say what you want about Lin Wood’s rampage, but he hasn’t posted anything fake that I know of so far.”

Want to clarify one quick thing: Lin Wood has 100% posted conspiracy theories and hoaxes about the 2020 election. But all the calls and documents he’s posted during his recent rampage against Tuck, Flynn, Byrne, etc, have held up to scrutiny.”

Of course, Tucker, Biden, or anyone else in between has not yet confirmed or denied the legitimacy of the Lin Wood leak. However, it’s worth noting that Carlson himself admitted to once knowing Hunter quite well, during a Fox segment back in October of 2020:
There are a lot of documents about Hunter Biden’s personal life that we haven’t brought you and that we’re not going to bring you, and we should tell you why. One is the obvious answer: He’s not running for president. Hunter Biden is a fallen man at this point. I should also say that I knew Hunter Biden fairly well. We lived near each other in Washington for quite some time. I knew his wife, who’s an absolutely outstanding person, a good person.”
Now, the entire situation has managed to get that much worse for the controversial Fox hot, after the Washington Post released a bombshell new report, in which they officially verified the correspondence between Tucker Carlson, his wife, and the president’s son.
A copy of the laptop hard drive was provided to The Post by Jack Maxey, an activist who received a copy from Rudy Giuliani in 2020, at a time when Maxey was working with Stephen K. Bannon and his “War Room” podcast. Two security experts who did a forensic analysis of the data at the request of The Washington Post were able to verify a portion of the emails as authentic communications. The emails cited in this report were either verified by the analysts or recently corroborated by a person familiar with the communications.”
Do with that information what you will, friends.
