Austin, 70, was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center beginning Jan. 1 following a Dec. 22 surgery to treat his prostate cancer. A subsequent urinary tract infection kept him under close watch by doctors until his release Monday.
“When you and I last spoke, you promised full transparency into questions regarding the secrecy of your recent hospitalization. While you did respond to some of my questions I had for you, a concerning number of questions were not addressed,” Rogers wrote in a Thursday letter.
Rogers listed several questions for Austin to review and answer by Feb. 7, ahead of the hearing Rogers scheduled for Feb. 14.
