NSA director Rodgers openly says Trump complicating U.S. alliances


Follow me as we connect the dots. Many were voicing concerns over Trump keeping Admiral Rodgers as director of the National Security Agency. His charge was mainly cybersecurity and a hold over from Obama. When I caught Rodger’s negative statements at the Comey hearing it was time to see what he was about. Even more disturbing is to find that NSA General Counsel Glenn Gerstell, a major bundler for Obama is still in his role and has not been removed. If Trump is to survice he best empty these pieces of garbage pronto. Here tis:

A stunning moment in the House Intelligence hearing — the director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael Rogers, acknowledged on live television that President Trump’s loose talk has complicated relationships with Britain and Germany.

  1. On Britain: Rogers was asked about Trump’s repetition of an unsubstantiated claim that Britain’s top spy agency wiretapped Trump on behalf of President Obama. Rogers gave a forceful “no,” said he agreed with the British that the claims were nonsense, and acknowledged that Trump’s allegation was unhelpful and “clearly frustrates a key ally of ours.”
  2. On Germany: Rogers was asked about Trump’s suggestion to German Chancellor Angela Merkel last week that they both had something in common because they’d been wiretapped by Obama. Rogers said it was unhelpful for Trump to raise this controversial incident, which became public due to leaks by Edward Snowden. “It certainly complicates things,” Rogers said. More at Axios 

Enter Glenn S. Gerstell:

Mar 2, 2017We were delighted to have Mr. Glenn S. Gerstell, General Counsel of the National Security Agency, as our keynote speaker for the Saturday …topic:

NSA General Counsel Glenn Gerstell on “Confronting the Cybersecurity Challenge”

And just who is Glenn Gerstell?

NSA Appoints Obama Bundler As New Top Lawyer (2015) 

Washington attorney and Obama fundraiser Glenn Gerstell gets tapped for the top legal post at the nation’s largest intelligence agency.

As the NSA’s top lawyer, Gerstell would be a part of the agency’s senior leadership team and advise the director, Admiral Michael Rogers. In the wake of the Edward Snowden leaks, the general counsel has also been tasked with speaking publicly about the NSA’s actions and defending their legality.

In 2011, Obama appointed Gerstell to the National Infrastructure Advisory Committee. The group, which is part of the Homeland Security Department, advises the president and other U.S. officials on matters of infrastructure and cybersecurity. Gerstell served in a volunteer part-time position, according to his online résumé.More at Daily Beast

    Conservative TreeHouse has Rodgers as a White Hat – someone who is helping President Trump. Then again, CTH banned me because I said they were wrong about a Constitutional power…so what do they know??? 🙂

      I looked but could not find it. My opinion is he is a mole. Supposedly he was going to be fired by Obama right after Trump won the election. Why would Obama go to so much trouble. Funny, google doesn’t bring up the stories I wanted to quote back in 2015 when there was concern about him. If you have the link and you have a chance please post.. Thanks.

        I think Sundance believes Rodgers is the one who gave Nunes the intelligence reports.

        Thanks for the links Laura. I will have to re-read but nothing jumps out at me that Rodgers should be in the white hat group of good guys. Why is Gerstel still hanging with him? A lawyer that had no experience in cybersecurity but a cover for their nefarious activities. So far my mind is not changed.. sure wish I could find the old stuff. Spent about an hour trying to dig up the old stuff on Rodgers.

      Great catch. Before it is over, Trump will be vindicated if he gets out the Obama spies he has left to remain in his administration.
