Charles Krauthammer cautioned Fox News viewers Wednesday against jumping to conclusions after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes revealed President Trump’s personal communications may have been incidentally collected by the intelligence community during the 2016 campaign.
“Well, we don’t know,” the Fox News analyst admitted in response to questioning from “Special Report” guest host James Rosen. “There’s so much about this Nunes report that we don’t know.”
“There appears to have been for sure illegal, if not illegal improper, unmasking of Americans,” the conservative pundit added. “We know that’s so because of the Flynn the unmasking.”
“What we didn’t know until today was, did it apply to others? Did it involve wiretaps that did not involve the Russians?” (VIDEO: Trump — ‘I Very Much Feel Appreciate The Fact They Found What They Found’)
“We now know that is a yes,” he continued. “But we don’t know if this is listening in on Trump operatives, on Trump himself, or whether it’s chatter by others about the Trump transition.”
“Until we know about those questions, we are in the dark, the same way the leading Democrat on the committee is in the dark.”
