Burrs comment about Rogers closed session was interesting.

Burrs comment was directly after Heinrich accused Sessions of 'obstructing this investigation'. Could it have been a shot across the bow saying the intel committee already has corroboration of Comey's statement?

From The Hill.

"NSA director spoke to committee in closed session

4:13 p.m.

NSA Director Adm. Mike Rogers answered the committee’s questions in a closed setting on Monday evening, Burr said.

Rogers was criticized by lawmakers on the committee for dodging a number of questions related to the Russia investigation at a recent open hearing.

According to the Washington Post, Trump made an appeal to Rogers and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to publicly deny the existence of evidence of collusion between Trump campaign associates and Moscow, after Comey acknowledged the existence of the FBI investigation.

Neither official has publicly confirmed the report.

Burr said Tuesday that Rogers “spent almost two hours in closed session with almost the full committee” and “thoroughly answered” their questions. "

Remember while Coats couldn't give a reason why he wouldn't talk about it. Rogers said he would talk about it in a closed session. Could it be he has already talked to Meuller and was told he shouldn't say anything about the ongoing case in open session?

Watch to see if trash talk toward Rogers starts coming out from the WH. That seems to be the M.O. of this WH.

3. If he was there only 2 hours, no way did Rogers "thoroughly" answered everyone's questions.

But at least he showed up in closed session to answer, unlike Coates. Coates obstructed justice by refusing to answer.
