The Observer reports this week that the Director of the NSA, Admiral Mike Rogers, has admitted in a private town-hall-style meeting of NSA staffing that Donald Trump did, in fact, collude with the Russians.
The story really begins when President Trump attempted to sway several top intelligence and security officials into joining his cause of derailing then FBI Director, James Comey. According to The Observer, these officials included, but were not limited to, Rogers and Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence.
Trump was dealt a huge setback, however, when both of these men made it clear to the Trump that their loyalties lied with their oaths to defend the United States Constitution, not with the President’s political agendas.
In a testimony last week before the Senate Armed Forces Committee, Coats declined to answer questions about Trump’s attempt to undermine the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between Trump and Russia. He intimated the public setting would be inappropriate, and that he might be more forthcoming in a classified setting.
