The former CIA director said he was not aware of President Trump asking members of the intelligence community to stop their investigation into Michael Flynn.
Former CIA Director John Brennan told the House Select Committee on Intelligence on Tuesday that he is unaware of any attempt by President Trump or the Trump administration to enlist the help of people within the intelligence community to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn.
CNN reported that President Trump asked two top intelligence chiefs to publicly deny any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, according to multiple sources.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) asked Brennan about these reports, and whether Brennan has heard from any members of the intelligence community that President Trump had attempted to enlist their help to drop the investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
“No sir,” Brennan replied.
Schiff followed up by asking Brennan if he is aware of any efforts President Trump has made to enlist the help of intelligence community personnel to push back on reports of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Brennan told Schiff he is unaware of any such efforts.
