Carlson was the talk of Twitter on Thursday night after he demanded to see evidence of the Trump campaign claims of a rigged election.
Many Fox News fans, who have become disenchanted with the network, accused Carlson of stabbing Trump in the back the way they believe the entire network did.
“What (former Federal Prosecutor) @SidneyPowell1 was describing would amount to the single biggest crime in American history”
Yes @TuckerCarlson it would be
This is why it must go to court
Judges receive & assess evidence

“We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour,” Carlson said on his show.
“But she never sent us any evidence, despite a lot of requests, polite requests. Not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her,” the host argued.
“She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another. Not one,” he said.
He cast doubt on Powell and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s claims that the election was stolen, though he did not dismiss that it could be possible.
“What Powell was describing would amount to the single greatest crime in American history,” he said.
