WATCH LIVE: Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats Testifies Before Senate Armed Services Committee
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats will appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee amid the ongoing developments regarding the congressional probes into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
Coats generated new media intrigue last night, after it was reported that President Trump asked Coats and other intelligence officials to join him in publicly pushing back against the FBI’s probe into Russia’s 2016 election-meddling. Coats decided that the request was inappropriate and he declined to condemn the FBI’s investigation.
The news comes as the Trump Administration has faced building pressure over the Russian investigations ever since James Comey was fired as FBI director.
