Dem Lawmaker’s House Raided by FBI in Connection to Tucker Carlson Leaks – Report

Published on

According to a report published on Friday, the search of a Florida Democratic elected official’s residence by the FBI is related to the disclosure of Fox News documents involving Tucker Carlson.

This month, the federal agency conducted a raid and inspection of a Tampa residence, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Lynn Hurtak, a member of the Tampa City Council, and her spouse, media consultant Tim Burke, reside in this residence.

Following his firing from Fox News last month, Carlson has been the target of a series of selective disclosures, with Media Matters disseminating off-air content in which he made offensive remarks.

WARNING: The following video contains vulgar language that some viewers may find offensive.

Conservative detractors of Fox News have accused the network of disclosing the video in an attempt to tarnish his reputation following his precipitous dismissal.

According to sources familiar with the operation, the search was conducted as part of an FBI investigation into the disclosures.

A federal prosecutor furnished Fox News with a letter detailing the investigation.

The FBI is investigating alleged computer hacking and intercepted network communications.

According to the report, the search occurred on May 8.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Burke has worked for the left-leaning publications Deadspin and The Daily Beast.

Burke declined to comment in response to a Times inquiry.

According to The Daily Beast, prosecutors have urged a judge to conceal the probable cause affidavit underlying the search of Burke’s residence.
