Sure looks like the fix is in.
Special Counsel Jack Smith has expressed interest in audio tapes recorded by former Fox News producer Abby Grossberg, according to her lawyer Gerry Filippatos. Grossberg has provided a spreadsheet to Smith’s team, detailing the nearly 90 audio tapes in her possession, which could provide insights into efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 election. Talks are underway for a subpoena, so Grossberg can turn over the material to Smith’s team of federal prosecutors who are leading the investigation.
“We’re in the process of negotiating a targeted subpoena for Abby’s electronic data, so they can have what they want,” Filippatos said in a statement to CNN on Wednesday.
The investigation/continuation of witch hunt centers on whether Trump and his associates coordinated with Fox News to spread false information about the election, which led to 1/6.
Federal investigators first reached out to Grossberg several weeks ago, after news outlets aired some of the tapes. Filippatos said that Grossberg is committed to fully cooperating with law enforcement, which could include an eventual FBI interview or meetings with other investigators.
“They reached out to us after we publicized some of the tapes,” Filippatos said.
Grossberg previously worked as a producer on Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends” before being laid off in 2018. She has since made the decision to come forward with the tapes in the interest of transparency and accountability.
Meanwhile, it has been learned that Grossberg never met Tucker Carlson.
Abby Grossberg’s lawyers just confirmed to me that she never actually met Tucker while working for Fox News.

It looks like another political hit job, and they are going to try and indict Tucker.
