Tucker Carlson has issued an "update" after a segment on his Fox News show about voter fraud allegations drew backlash.
On Thursday night, Carlson delivered a monologue in which he discussed President Donald Trump's attorney Sidney Powell and her claims that rigged voting software switched millions of votes from Trump to Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
According to Carlson, Powell refused to send him evidence supporting her claims, despite multiple requests from "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
"When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her," Carlson said in the Thursday segment. "When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either, nor did she provide any today at the press conference."
Earlier this month, a national coalition announced there is no evidence that any voting software deleted or changed votes in the election, per USA TODAY. The security group — which includes the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the National Association of State Election Directors — described the election as "the most secure in American history."
"There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised," the coalition concluded.
Carlson's comments drew backlash from Trump's supporters online, who argued Powell is saving her evidence for court rather than revealing it to the media first.
The Fox News host later updated his statement on Powell, in a clip shared to his Twitter account Friday.
