‘In a phone call with Mike Rogers he asked that Mike Rogers come out and say there’s no evidence so far of collusion between the campaign and Russia’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
SONNE: “We understand after that clip we heard from James Comey, after he came out and said the investigation will determine whether or not there was collusion between the campaign and Russia. We understand Trump did as you say contact director of national intelligence Dan coats and admiral Mike Rogers, head of national security agency. In a phone call with Mike Rogers he asked that Mike Rogers come out and say there's no evidence so far of collusion between the campaign and Russia, but also during that conversation he expressed skepticism over the intelligence community assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election.”
