White House news Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre called claims that US President Joe Biden's administration attempted to prevent journalist Tucker Carlson from meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin "ridiculous" at a daily news conference on Tuesday.

Putin and the former Fox News anchor spoke on Tuesday, according to confirmation from the Kremlin. But according to Carlson, Washington has been trying constantly to stop him from making overtures to the president of Russia.

"The Biden administration unlawfully spied on our text exchanges over three years ago, and then they disclosed their contents to their aides in the press media. "They took this action to thwart our planned Putin interview," he said. We are very sure they repeated the exact same action last month. However, we still traveled to Moscow this time.

When asked about Carlson's accusation, Jean-Pierre first said, "absolutely not," but she subsequently had second thoughts. "This administration was the subject of a foolish assertion and premise," the speaker said.

Carlson has often said that he learned from a source that US intelligence was listening in on his contacts while he was attempting to set up a one-on-one meeting with Putin. He said that the monitoring was confirmed by quotes from his texts that were sent back to him.

Although the NSA has denied that it was targeting the journalist, the Axios news website has partly confirmed his account by quoting anonymous US government sources who claim that the agency was aware of his attempts to gain an interview with Putin. The publication said that Carlson had contacted "US-based Kremlin proxies" who had released the messages.

In his preview, the journalist who broadcasts a program on X (previously Twitter) said that the US media was not adequately educating the people on the nature of the crisis in Ukraine and the broader standoff between the US and Russia. Elon Musk, the owner of X, backed him, he added, promising not to prevent the interview from airing on his platform.

Contrarily, Western governments will undoubtedly do their hardest to block this video on other, less moral sites since that is what they do. He anticipated, "They are terrified of knowledge they cannot control.

There has been no indication from President Putin's staff that this kind of interview has been allowed. On Monday, Dmitry Peskov, the spokesperson for the Kremlin, informed reporters that he would "not comment on the travels of the American journalist."
