Top Intel Officials: Trump Never Pressured Us Regarding Russia Probe
08 June 2017, 02:12 | Stacy Allen
Trump supporters may have been satisfied with the answers, but some lawmakers were not. Trump fired Comey in May.
Coats will testify on Wednesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee. They also said they never felt pressure to do so.
The question of whether the president obstructed the Russian Federation investigation is expected to take center stage this week with Comey's highly anticipated testimony on the Hill on Thursday.
Top intelligence officials in the USA government have taken a bunker mentality when it comes to the investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election, refusing to share details of presidential conversations in open Senate testimony.
Nowhere in Wednesday's hours-long testimony did Coats or Rogers deny the president asked them to intervene; they simply refused to talk about it.
Michael Rogers said that he had never been asked to do anything illegal or inappropriate during testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday.
A spokesman for Pompeo declined to comment on the closed-door discussions.
"But it seems to me that this is an effort to try to take people's attention off what is going to be the main event, at least for the next two days, the leaders of our intelligence community and the Federal Bureau of Investigation director".
While Democrats have focused on possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, Republicans have focused on leaks about the investigation.
The incidents suggest that Trump may not have appreciated the traditional barriers meant to insulate the intelligence agencies from politics.
During a campaign stop in Wilmington Ohio previous year, Trump said he would redirect billions of dollars in payments to the United Nations to combat climate change and "use that money to invest in America", including replacing the double-decker bridge.
Coats said that it "remains infeasible" to determine exactly how often USA persons' communications are collected under 702.
In that meeting, Trump asked him if he wanted to stay in his job.
They'll also want to know what conversations Mr. Coats and Mr. Rogers had with the White House related to Russian Federation matters.
The provision allows US intelligence agencies to conduct surveillance of non-U.S. persons outside the country.
Trump's son, Eric Trump, repeated that claim Tuesday in an interview with ABC News.
"The president said, 'I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.' I didn't move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed", Comey said.
The White House backed away from the idea of naming Feinberg after Coats and members of the intelligence community and Congress raised objections.
Warner said he was "disappointed" with the officials' answers.
Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election, and ensuing congressional and FBI investigations into Moscow's ties with Trump associates has dogged the president since he took office. Coats said in response to a line of questioning from Arizona Sen. Martin Heinrich, a New Mexico Democrat.
"If we have a pattern today and tomorrow, I think all these efforts to distract the public that the president may be trying to throw up may not work", Warner said on "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday.
