EU politicians look to impose a travel ban on Tucker Carlson following his trip to Moscow to interview President Putin --According to a member of the EU's parliament, Carlson could be subject to economic sanctions and a 'travel ban' | 7 Feb 2024 | Talk show host [and journalist] Tucker Carlson could be subjected to sanctions from the European Union due to his activities in Russia, a new report says. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been interviewed by Carlson, the Kremlin confirmed Wednesday... Carlson released a video from Moscow on Tuesday in which he said he would be interviewing Putin; less than 24 hours later, the Kremlin confirmed the sit-down took place. Former Belgian Prime Minister and current member of the European Union Parliament Guy Verhofstadt told Newsweek as the Russian president is considered a "war criminal," it's "logical" that an investigation be held into Carlson. Verhofstadt has also called for a "travel ban" against Carlson and described the host as a "mouthpiece" for Donald Trump, who has long been criticized for his pro-Kremlin views. Any investigation into Trump would be conducted by the EU's European External Action Service, or EEAS, which is essentially the 27-nation bloc's foreign ministry.
