Speaking of “fake news,” here’s a correction to a story that’s been floating around for about 18 months. Back in March, 2017, the Washington Post, citing its fabled anonymous “current and former officials,” claimed that President Trump asked since-retired NSA Director Mike Rogers to publicly deny any collusion between his campaign and Russia. Tuesday, Rogers made his first public appearance since retiring, at a panel discussion at George Mason University, and moderator Nicole Wallace of MSNBC asked about the Post’s claim.
Rogers replied, “I was never asked that.” When pressed on whether Mike Pence or some other official had asked him to deny Russian collusion, Rogers reiterated, “I was never asked that.” He said he never had any conversations about collusion with Trump or Pence, adding, “I’ve never been directed to do anything.”
When asked why he hadn’t said anything until now, Rogers said he’d never have gotten anything accomplished if he spent all his time correcting every erroneous press report.
That certainly has the ring of truth to me! You wouldn’t believe how much time I spend correcting erroneous press reports for you folks, and trust me, I don’t even get around to a third of them!
