Director of the National Security Agency Admiral Mike Rogers testified before the US Senate today. What NSA Director Mike Rogers just said, however, shows that Trump isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Newsweek reported that while testifying before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Wednesday, Rogers said that nobody in the Trump administration ever pressured him to do anything wrong.
“In the three-plus years that I have been the director of the National Security Agency, to the best of my recollection, I have never been directed to do anything I believed to be illegal, immoral, unethical or inappropriate,” Rogers said. “And to the best of my recollection, during that same period of service, I do not recall ever feeling pressured to do so.”
When asked about reports that Trump had asked him to publicly deny that his campaign had colluded with Russia during the election, Rogers wasn’t having any of it.
“I’m not going to discuss the specifics of conversations with the president of the United States,” he replied.
Director of National Intelligence Director Dan Coats was asked if he had been encouraged to influence an ongoing investigation by Trump, he had a similar answer.
“What I’m not willing to do is share what I think is confidential information that ought to be protected in an open hearing,” he said. “I’m just not going to go down that road in a public forum.”
