Fox News host Tucker Carlson said on his Wednesday evening show that "confidential documents" that are "damning" to the Biden family have disappeared from the custody of a major national shipment company while they were en route to him.
Carlson was in Los Angeles with a producer to interview Tony Bobulinski, who was previously involved in Biden family business deals that he insists involved Joe Biden himself. Meanwhile, Carlson's office in New York received the documents and shipped them on Monday, at his request, to his location in Los Angeles. But the documents never arrived. Carlson said the carrier notified his team on Tuesday that the package containing the documents had been opened and the documents were gone.
"Now, to it's credit, the company took this very seriously and immediately began a search," Carlson explained. "They traced the envelope from the moment our producers dropped it off in Manhattan on Monday all the way to 3:44 a.m. yesterday morning. That's when an employee at a sorting facility in another state noticed that our package was open and empty — apparently it had been opened."
Despite security team interviews of all employees who handled the package and searches of the vehicles used to transport it, of Carlson's New York office and of the company's sorting facility, the documents remain missing.
"They went far and beyond, but they found nothing," Carlson told viewers. "Those documents have vanished. As of tonight, the company has no idea, and no working theory even, about what happened to this trove of materials, documents that are directly relevant to the presidential campaign just six days from now. We spoke to executives at that company a few hours ago; they seemed baffled and deeply bothered by this, and so are we."
UPS confirmed to Business Insider that it was the company used to ship the documents.
UPS Corporate Media Relations Director Glenn Zaccara said Carlson's "package was reported with missing contents as it moved within our network."
"UPS is conducting an urgent investigation into this matter and regrets that the package was damaged," Zaccara said. "The integrity of our network and the security of our customers' goods are of utmost importance. We will remain in frequent, direct contact with Fox News as we learn more through our investigation."
