Fox News host Tucker Carlson has claimed that the United States is engaged in a direct war with Russia, citing the leaked Pentagon documents. The newsperson told viewers that American soldiers are fighting Russians on Ukraine’s behalf and accused the U.S. government of committing a crime. Despite reports from his own network denying his claims, Tucker Carlson continues to assert the United States’ involvement in the conflict.

On Thursday, a 21-year-old Air National Guardsman was arrested by the FBI for allegedly leaking intelligence documents online. The leaked docs pointed to information regarding Russia’s war in Ukraine, where the United States and its allies have been providing aid. The material showed that U.S. soldiers were present in Ukraine, but White House spokesman John Kirby clarified that the soldiers were there as part of an embassy defense attaché.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson declares the United States is at direct war with Russia 

Tucker Carlson addressed the information from the leaked classified documents to make his own deductions about an ongoing war. He claimed that it was not “any Eastern European regional conflict” and in fact, a war about two nuclear superpowers.

He stated that the U.S. government’s briefing slides had appeared on Twitter, revealing that the war in Ukraine is not Ukraine’s, but America’s war. He claimed that American soldiers are fighting against Russian soldiers as direct combatants. Tucker Carlson accused the U.S. government of committing a crime by violating American law since this war has never been formally declared or authorized by Congress.

Following this, Fox News White House Correspondent Jacqui Heinrich fact-checked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Twitter. She denied the claim that U.S. troops were on the ground and fighting in Ukraine. Fox News reporters Peter Doocy and Greg Norman also relayed Kirby’s remarks denying U.S. soldiers were on the battlefield in Ukraine.

21-year-old suspect arrested for leaking classified documents

A 21-year-old Air National Guardsman is under arrest in connection to the leaked classified documents that contained sensitive national security information. FBI agents arrested Massachusetts Air National Guardsman Jack Douglas Teixeira after he leaked US intelligence documents about the war in Ukraine and Chinese relations on Discord.

Political experts feel stunned by the incompetence of allowing a 21-year-old kid to expose sources and methods of spying. The leaked information revealed that the Chinese People’s Liberation Army has a new hypersonic missile that can reach the United States and exposed the US’s penetration of the Russian Defense Ministry, potentially affecting the war in Ukraine. 

The leak wasn’t ideological, but instead, it was a young man trying to impress his friends in a gaming chat room, which had a global impact on national security.
