Former National, Security Agency Director Mike Rogers says Robert Mueller’s final report highlights just why the U.S. needs to focus on stopping foreign governments from trying to influence elections in America.

His comments came in an interview with The Hill posted Tuesday.

“That should be totally unacceptable, totally unallowable, and we ought to be focused on what are we going to do to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” Rogers said. “Because it’s not going to go away.”

Mueller, the former special counsel, in discussing his report had said: “As alleged by the grand jury in an indictment, Russian intelligence officers who were part of the Russian military launched a concerted attack on our political system.”

And Rogers encouraged people to read Mueller’s report..

“I think the breadth of the Russians’ effort, the amount of time, the complexity of that effort — it didn’t surprise me, but again, I think it’s something that ought to make people step back and say, ‘Wow, this wasn’t a casual effort,’” Rogers said. “This was a broad, sustained, comprehensive strategy about how we are going to attempt to influence and impact the 2016 election.”

Rogers also served as commander of the U.S. Cyber Command.
