Trump Obstruction Of Justice Confirmed By Intelligence Heads To Special Counsel

Trump Obstruction Of Justice Confirmed By Intelligence Heads To Special Counsel

Now, a CNN report says that Coats and Rogers admitted to Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Trump suggested they publicly refute accusations that his campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers told investigators about Trump's request, and said that they did not feel Trump was trying to interfere in the probes, CNN reported.

Coats and Rogers also met individually last week with the Senate intelligence committee in two closed briefings that were described to CNN by Democratic and Republican congressional sources.

Known as "the Special One", the 54-year-old Mourinho is one of the most prominent and successful coaches in football today. The Portuguese global is now in Russian Federation competing for the European champions in the Confederations Cup .

It doesn't matter for the obstruction of justice investigation related to Comey of Rogers and Coats believed that Trump was giving them an order or not because they were not running the federal investigation into the Russian Federation scandal.

Even though both Rogers and Coats participated in joint and individual hearings with Mueller, the team of investigators could not extract many details about the interactions between the president and the intelligence officials.

Senators from both parties were frustrated June 7 when neither Coats or Rogers would tell them what the president had said during those meetings.

Coats and Rogers appear to have carefully framed their statements, and while talking to the Senate, they stressed that Trump (as he did with Comey) wanted them to publicly say that he wasn't under investigation. However, sources said that neither Coats nor Rogers raised concerns that Trump was pushing them to do something they did not want to do. Sessions kept on refusing to give a straight answer to most of the questions asked by the senate members by claiming that the interactions between him and the president is covered under executive privilege, even though the latter had not exercised the same before Sessions' testimony started. These came a few days after Comey publicly confirmed for the first time the existence of the federal investigation of potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. However, both men had said they never felt pressure to do anything improper, the website said.

That one-page memo, written by his deputy Richard Ledgett, contains few details, unlike a memo created by Comey about his private meeting with Trump. They strengthen the motive behind why James Comey was sacked from his job as FBI Director.

Coats did not document his conversations with the President about the issue, the source said.
