President Trump asked Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats to intervene with FBI Director James Comey and his investigation into Trump and his campaign’s coordination with Russia to undermine the 2016 Presidential election. In the following days he also asked Coats and National Security Agency Director Admiral Mike Rogers to publicly deny existence of any evidence of collusion after Comey testified before Congress that there was an ongoing FBI investigation.
