    Former Fox News star Tucker Carlson is throwing his support behind Donald Trump as he seeks to oust Joe Biden from the White House.

    “I became an active Trump supporter when they raided Mar-A-Lago last summer,” Carlson said on an episode of Roseanne Barr’s podcast this week. “That can’t stand. And I agree with Trump on a lot, but even if I disagreed with Trump on a lot, I’d still be a Trump supporter because you cannot allow that.”

    He said that the search of Trump’s home in Florida as part of a federal investigation into his handling of classified documents in the summer of 2022 was a tipping point for Carlson.

    “It’s bigger than Trump, it’s bigger than Biden. It’s do you want to live in a free country with a functioning justice system,” Carlson added. “So I’m voting for Trump, and if they convict him I will send him the max donations and I will lead protests.”

    Carlson was fired from the network earlier this year shortly after Fox agreed to pay nearly $800 million to Dominion Voting Systems to settle a defamation lawsuit triggered by the 2020 presidential election.

    Throughout the legal proceedings, some of Carlson’s internal communications were made public, often viewing Trump negatively.

    “I hate him passionately,” Carlson wrote of Trump to a Fox colleague in one now widely publicized message.

    1. I have to mention the part in this article where Dominion won the lawsuit. There was one person who came forward and testified that they saw a poll worker walk up to one of the Dominion voting machines and plugged in a thumb drive and later pulled it out. I can’t remember where this happened but if this is true, that blows this lawsuit out of the water, the election at this poll should have been thrown out and done over with paper ballots only.
