Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating President Trump's personal business dealing with Russian Federation, potentially crossing a red line that Mr. Trump had drawn.

"What I see on the Cyber Command side leads me to believe that if we don't change the dynamic here, that this is going to continue, and 2016 won't be viewed as isolated", he said.

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is raising a cry of alarm that the "Russians are still coming" and accusing President Donald Trump of doing nothing to defend the upcoming U.S. elections.

When Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., sought clarification, Rogers said he had taken additional steps within his purview, but "I haven't been granted any, you know, additional authorities, capacity and capability". One tweet reiterated his commonly stated belief that his 2016 general election opponent, Hillary Clinton, should be investigated for "criminality".

Investigators working for special prosecutor Robert Mueller are beginning to focus on the months leading up to President Donald Trump's June 2015 decision to run for president as they probe into whether associates of the president colluded with Russian officials to influence the election, FOX Business has learned. Two weeks ago, Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, and FBI Director Christopher Wray told the Senate Intelligence Committee that they had received no specific orders from the Trump White House on deterring Moscow.

And the Trump administration should weigh the indictment's evidence that Russian President Vladimir Putin supported or ordered the meddling and impose sanctions if they are justified.

"It doesn't mean it wouldn't be looked into", Starr said, "but it might very well be 'Mueller, you're not the person to do it, we're going to have someone else do it'".

"The challenge for us is that we have this thing called the law, a legal framework, where it shapes right now what DoD can and cannot do", Rogers said in response to a question from Sen.

"We need to put our foot to the gas pedal", Gerry Connolly, a Democrat from Virginia who introduced a bill in the House, said on Tuesday. He said that authority was held by Trump and Mattis.

"State actors have gotten more aggressive, not less aggressive", Rogers said, pointing to Russia, China, North Korea and Iran.

Rogers is finishing his term as the head of Cyber Command this spring, and the Trump administration has nominated Army Lt. Gen. Paul Nakasone to replace him. "But the point would be, it hasn't been enough".
