Tucker Carlson: ‘Which Is Potentially a Greater Threat to You? Mike Flynn or the FBI?’

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson joined The Five today and clashed with co-host Richard Fowler over the Michael Flynn plea deal. Carlson said he was not defending Flynn, and made it clear he does think his lobbying for the Turkish government was a serious problem. But he went on to say this:
“I don’t want to appear to be defending someone I just attacked for lobbying for Turkey, but we’re vesting far too much trust in the FBI. Do you have any idea what it looks like when they come after you? Do you know anyone who’s been gone after by the FBI?… My question is, you know––I like the FBI and I support American law enforcement, but which is potentially a greater threat to you? Mike Flynn or the FBI? It’s not a close call. So I don’t think we should just assume that because someone has pled to that there’s an actual crime in that.”
