Daily Caller co-founder and former Fox News host Tucker Carlson retweeted a post Monday featuring a statement from author Chadwick Moore, who claimed to know why Fox decided to part ways with its top-ranked anchor.
Moore has spent the last year writing the “definitive biography” of Carlson, which is based on more than 100 hours of interviews and thorough research, according to the tweet. The book is set to be released in mid-July, but Moore apparently felt the need to share some of the information he uncovered well ahead of the official release date.
“I was working closely with Tucker when he was taken off the air by Fox. And as some of you know, I was also a regular on his show, and I happened to be a guest on the final episode of the show, which was on April 21,” Moore noted in the video. “I’ve also seen the monologue that Tucker planned to deliver on Monday, April 24, before his show was abruptly taken off the air.”

Moore claimed that the monologue was focused on the events of Jan 6., and “particularly Ray Epps.” Epps is the “only person captured on video inciting people to violence at the capitol that day, and allegedly an FBI informant who has not been arrested or changed,” according to Moore. Epps has denied that he was acting under orders from the FBI or any other federal agency. (RELATED: Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Attempts To Incite People Into ‘The Streets’ Outside Supreme Court)
Moore went on to reiterate claims that Carlson’s firing was part of the Dominion Voting Systems settlement with Fox. Dominion has denied these claims, but Moore says his sources state otherwise. “They have assured me, even before this news leaked, that is in fact the truth,” he stated.

“If that is true, it would mean that a small group of people, who have a controlling interest in Dominion, have managed to silence what is arguably the most important and influential conservative voice in the country, possibly until after the next presidential election,” Moore noted.
Moore’s book, “Tucker,” is set for release on July 18.
