Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers thinks former FBI Director James Comey could testify again about President Trump’s firing of his former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
“I don’t think he’s done here. Given what happened — the plea deal with Gen. Flynn — I think Comey will play another role in this. I’m sure they’ll bring him back,” Rogers told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.
Comey testified to a Senate panel earlier this year Trump made multiple comments to him that he saw as requests to drop the FBI’s investigation of Flynn, who pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the bureau about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador.
In a tweet Sunday morning, Trump denied ordering Comey to stop investigating his national security adviser.
“I think his testimony is going to be credible,” Rogers said of Comey. “I do believe James Comey. I think James Comey is a very good man. The FBI agents loved James Comey.”
However, Rogers said he thinks Comey showed “judgement problems” with how he dealt with the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
“I think he made some mistakes,” he said.
