NSA Director Says Clinton’s Private Server “Represents Opportunity” For Foreign Governments

Adding to the chorus of experts pointing out the security risk of Clinton’s private server today, NSA Director Mike Rogers told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence that a foreign official using a private email server “represents opportunity”:

Sen. Tom Cotton: “If an NSA employee came to you and said, ‘Hey boss, we have reason to believe that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov or Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif is conducting official business on a private server,’ how would you respond?”

NSA Director Mike Rogers: “From a foreign intelligence perspective, that represents opportunity.”
