The directors of the Office of National Intelligence and National Security Agency testified at a Senate hearing on Wednesday that they have not been pressured by President Trump on the Russia investigation.
Liberals and the media (but we repeat ourselves) are stunned, as those statements contradict earlier reports.
Dan Coats, director of national intelligence, and Admiral Mike Rogers, director of NSA, declined to discuss details about their conversations with President Trump.
But both were adamant that no obstruction of the investigation has taken place.
“I have never been directed to do anything that I believe to be illegal, immoral, unethical or inappropriate…I do not recall ever feeling pressured to do so,” Rogers told Virginia Senator Mark Warner.
When Warner and other more-obnoxious Democrats persisted, Rogers said, “I stand by the comment I just made, sir.”
