WASHINGTON (AP) - National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers says a foreign official who used a private email server to communicate would present a spying opportunity for the U.S.

Rogers told senators at a hearing Thursday that he didn’t want to get dragged into the Hillary Clinton email controversy. But he acknowledged to Arkansas Republican Tom Cotton that the communications of senior U.S. officials are highly sought after by foreign intelligence agencies.

Rogers says that if he learned that a top foreign official was emailing over a private server, he would consider that an intelligence-gathering opportunity.

Clinton has said she is sorry she used a private email server as her exclusive email account for government business when she was secretary of state, but the issue has continued to shadow her presidential campaign.
