The director of national intelligence dispelled reports regarding President Trump and investigations on Wednesday.
Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Director Dan Coats told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday that he has never felt pressure from President Trump to intervene in an ongoing investigation.
Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) was finishing up his questioning of Coats and National Security Agency (NSA) Director Michael Rogers when he stated that it appears there is a pattern developing with President Trump trying to stop the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“In my time of service, which is in interacting with the president of the United States or anybody in his administration, I have never been pressured, I have never felt pressure, to intervene or interfere in any way, with shaping intelligence in a political way, or in relationship to an ongoing investigation.”
Coats’ statement seems to refute a Washington Post report which claims that Trump asked him to intervene with then-FBI Director James Comey’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
