On Monday, NSA Director Mike Rogers agreed with FBI Director James Comey that he had not seen any evidence supporting Donald Trump’s wiretapping claims.
Responding to a question specifically about if the agency requested British help in the wiretapping — a claim Sean Spicer made from the press room podium while reading a Fox News Report –, Rogers said this: “No sir, nor would I. That would be expressly against the construct of the five eyes agreement that has been in place for decades.”
Then when asked if anyone else in the Obama administration made such a request, he said: “No sir, and again my view is the same as Director Comey. I have seen nothing on the NSA side that we engaged in such activity or that anyone ever asked us to engage in such activity.”
