Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Demands $1 Million in Bitcoin for Interview with Tucker Carlson

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who has been vocal in his support for Ukraine’s defense against Russian invasion, has reportedly demanded $1 million for an interview with Tucker Carlson, the former Fox News host who recently interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Carlson, who returned from his trip to Moscow last week, revealed the shocking request on Blaze TV, where he gave his first interview after his controversial meeting with Putin. Carlson said he had reached out to Johnson for an interview after the former prime minister called him “a tool of the Kremlin” for his sympathetic stance towards Russia.

However, Carlson said he was stunned when an adviser of Johnson told him that the interview would cost him $1 million, payable in U.S. dollars, gold or bitcoin. Carlson said Johnson wanted the money to explain his position on Ukraine, which Carlson described as a “shakedown” and a “money laundering scheme”.

Carlson accused Johnson of being one of the many profiteers of the conflict in Ukraine, and claimed that Johnson was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people for blocking a peace deal between Ukraine and Russia a year and a half ago, at the request of the U.S. government.

Carlson also compared Johnson unfavorably to Putin, saying that the Russian leader did not ask him for any money for the interview, and that Johnson was “a lot sleazier, a lot lower than Vladimir Putin”.

Carlson questioned the merit of spending $60 billion to support Ukraine’s defense, saying that it would not allow Ukraine to prevail over Russia, and that it was a “money laundering operation” that benefited a lot of people who were making money off of war.

Carlson’s interview with Putin, which aired on Fox Nation, drew criticism from many quarters, including the Biden administration, which accused Carlson of giving Putin a platform to spread propaganda and misinformation. Carlson defended his interview, saying that he did not support Putin, but that he wanted to hear his perspective on the issues affecting the world. Carlson also said that he challenged Putin on some of his claims, and that he did not trust him.

Johnson has not responded to Carlson’s allegations, or confirmed the $1 million request. Johnson stepped down as prime minister in 2022, after losing a vote of no confidence over his handling of the Brexit negotiations. He remains a member of parliament, and a leader of the Conservative Party. Johnson has been a staunch ally of the U.S. and NATO, and a vocal critic of Russia’s aggression in Ukraine and elsewhere.
