Statement by The Honorable Mike Rogers on the Recent Developments on the National Security Council

February 15, 2017


Washington, D.C. – “The United States faces significant, complex, and serious national security challenges across the globe. Successfully navigating this dangerous landscape requires the full marshaling of our country’s national power towards carefully considered strategic objectives.

Recent developments present an opportunity to realign the National Security Council to ensure that the president and key decision makers receive the best intelligence product to make the most informed decisions possible. Regardless of whoever is the national security adviser, he or she will need to bring judgment and experience to the post, and the ability to deftly manage the national security architecture during times of crisis.

Make no mistake about it, our allies and adversaries alike are watching how we as a nation conduct our affairs.”
