Testifying Wednesday in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers indirectly admitted that President Donald Trump never once pressured him to interfere with the FBI’s investigation into his presidential campaign activities.
“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,” he stated in response to questions by Democrat senators concerning an uncorroborated report from The Washington Post claiming Trump once asked his top intelligence officials to intervene on his behalf.
Published last month, the report claimed without any concrete evidence that “Trump (had) made separate appeals to the director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, and to Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, urging them to publicly deny the existence of any evidence of collusion during the 2016 election.”

Rogers “may have a bomb to drop” on the Trump administration, The Atlantic contributor Steve Clemons erroneously predicted Saturday during a panel on MSNBC, according to the far-left blog Raw Story.
