POLITICO: “Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, NSA Director Mike Rogers and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats repeatedly stonewalled when asked about news reports that Trump asked each of them to downplay or refute the FBI’s probe, which is examining whether Trump’s associates colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.”

“Reports about the president’s interactions with his intelligence chiefs have raised serious questions about Trump’s involvement in the politically sensitive investigation — an investigation helmed by FBI director James Comey until he was abruptly fired on May 9. Trump has said his decision was based in part because of Comey’s pursuit of the Russia probe.”

“Comey will testify before the Senate intelligence panel Thursday in one of the most intensely anticipated Capitol Hill hearings in years.”
