TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I'm agnostic about this. I don't know exactly if this is the whistleblower or not. I know we learned an awful lot about a federal employee who is working as a political activist. What -- what does that tell you about the way the city works?
NED RYUN: You think about this person that's now been named by Real Clear Investigations, The Federalist, Washington Examiner, not -- not only was he not a whistleblower, but a partisan political operative. He didn't just show up at the White House. He was detailed from the CIA. He was not picked by random. I would argue that he was there to represent [former CIA chief John] Brennan's interests, the CIA interest, and if you take it to its full extent, Tucker, again I think this person was more of a confidential asset of John Brennan inside the White House.
CARLSON: So, I -- unpack, if you would, because I -- I like how you're framing this. I think it's interesting and true. You can't have, you said, an administrative state in the middle of -- of a democratic republic.
