Tucker Carlson has issued a legal threat against a political action committee (PAC) that was launched to push the former Fox News star into running for president in 2024.
The Draft Tucker PAC was shut down by Carlson’s lawyers, who argued that spreading false rumors about Tucker running in 2024 is “defrauding his supporters.”
The PAC was launched after Fox News took Carlson off the air and canceled his primetime show.
Carlson is still under contract with Fox News and likely bound by a non-compete clause from relaunching another show.
However, launching a new show is something he has promised to do after announcing plans to continue on Twitter.
He is reportedly locked in legal negotiations regarding his departure from the network and the remainder of his contract.
The Draft Tucker PAC was launched amid speculation that Carlson might enter the presidential race.
Harmeet Dhillon, Carlson’s attorney, shut down that speculation on Monday in a cease-and-desist letter
