WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee believes there’s enough evidence against the suspected Boston marathon bomber to convict him.

Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he’s not worried that the government has decided against reading the suspect his Miranda rights. He says FBI agents need to know whether there are other bombs more than they need to use in court what the suspect might tell them.

Rogers, a former FBI agent, says there is so much evidence against the suspect that a conviction should be easy.
