TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): One of the political opponents the January 6th Committee is targeting is a man called Jeff Clark. He was Assistant Attorney General during the previous administration. Before dawn on Wednesday, which is to say, yesterday, a large group of armed federal agents wearing body armor with weapons raided Jeff Clark's home. They dragged him into the street in his pajamas. Now, what did Jeff Clark do wrong? Was he selling fentanyl? Was he human trafficking on the Mexican border? No. Jeff Clark did not commit any crime. What he did wrong was calling for an investigation into voter fraud.

We are happy to have Jeff Clark join us now. He's a senior fellow at the Center for Renewing America. Jeff, thanks so much for joining us. This is an almost -- I mean, this is Soviet account, really. So, tell us what happened and why.

JEFF CLARK (GUEST): It is and good to be here, Tucker. So, yesterday at about, just before 7 A.M., there was loud banging at my door, insistent banging. So I just rushed down as fast as I could. I, you know, quickly figured out, you know, that there were agents there. I opened the door and asked for the courtesy to be able to put some pants on and was told no, you've got to come outside. So I came outside, they swept the house. Eventually, they let me go back inside and put the pants on. But then, you know, by my count at one point, you know, 12 agents and two Fairfax County police officers went into my house, searched it for three and a half hours. They even brought along something, Tucker, I've never seen before or heard of, a electronic sniffing dog. And they took all of the electronics from my house. And you know, I don't blame the agents, I think what you're talking about in terms of weaponization is really about who's pointing the agents and telling them what to do, Tucker.
