Tucker Carlson brands Joe Biden a tyrant over Rudy Giuliani raid and claims anti-Trump Lincoln Project had advance tip-off after it touted on Twitter 'something big' was going to happen

 Tucker Carlson accused the Biden administration of 'having all the hallmarks of tyranny' over an FBI raid on Rudy Giuliani's Manhattan apartment, and claimed activist group The Lincoln Project were tipped off about the search.

Giuliani's home was searched in a dawn raid, as part of an investigation into his work in Ukraine, and electronic devices were seized. No charges have been brought against the former New York City Mayor turned Donald Trump fixer. 

Last week, on April 24, the anti-Trump media group The Lincoln Project tweeted: 'Multiple sources confirming something BIG is coming this Wednesday.'


Carlson said that this was a sign the organization, which has been riven by accusations of sexual harassment and questions over its use of donor money, was 'the Democratic Party's campaign operation'.

'The Feds notified their allies and the Democratic Party's campaign operation, The Lincoln Project,' said Carlson.

'The Lincoln Project then bragged online that they knew this raid was coming.

'Now, you may have thought The Lincoln Project was done.

'We told you that, in fact. We believed it was permanently discredited by a child molestation scandal. But it wasn't.

'Under this administration, The Lincoln Project is strong stronger than ever. Strong enough to know about a FBI raid before it happens.'


He said the group, started by disillusioned 'Never Trump' Republican strategists, was 'an ally of the White House.'

He added: 'So, by definition, they can do whatever they want and they do.'

On Wednesday afternoon, hours after the raid on Giuliani's apartment, The Lincoln Project was trolling him, retweeting a 2018 tweet of his in which he wrote the word: 'You'.

The activist group added: 'Have the right to remain silent.'

Giuliani is yet to comment on the raid, and is it unclear if The Lincoln Project's earlier tweet was a reference to the planned bust.  

The Lincoln Project launched in November 2019 as a super PAC that allowed its leaders to raise and spend unlimited sums of money. 

Since its creation, the Lincoln Project has raised $90 million - more than $50 million of which has gone to firms controlled by the group's leaders.

Its founders represent a who's who of prominent Republican strategists on cable television, including Schmidt and Reed Galen, both former advisers to John McCain; conservative attorney George Conway; former New Hampshire GOP chair Jennifer Horn; Florida-based veteran political ad maker Rick Wilson; and John Weaver, who has long advised former Ohio Gov. John Kasich. 

Backed by its founders' commanding social media presence, the organization quickly attracted a massive following of Trump critics in both parties that exceeded even its own founders' expectations.  

Earlier this year, however, Weaver, a 61-year-old married father, was accused of sexually harassing young men.

Questions were also asked about what happened to the huge sums of money donated to the group. Conway, Schmidt and Horn have all resigned, and Conway says the group he co-founded should close. 

Only three of the Lincoln Project board's eight co-founders now remain at the organization
