Three US intelligence chiefs push back in Senate grilling

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said he had never felt pressured (by President Trump)  to intervene in the shaping of intelligence, while National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers said he had “never been directed to do anything illegal, immoral or inappropriate.”  None of the five intelligence chiefs questioned by the committee submitted to the senators’ angry demand to discuss whether President Trump had pressured them to intervene in an FBI probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election. They refused to reveal contents of their conversations with the president on confidential maters. Their testimony was taken Wednesday by the same committee before which former FBI chief James Comey appears on Thursday.
