Intel Chiefs To Mueller: Trump Suggested We Deny Collusion

Intel Chiefs To Mueller Trump Suggested We Deny CollusionAmerica’s top intelligence officials reportedly told Senate investigators and special counsel Robert Mueller’s team that President Trump asked them to publicly refute allegations of collusion between his 2016 campaign and the Russians, CNN reports. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers told investigators about their interactions with the president in two separate meetings last week, according to the report. Both men said the suggestion from Trump made them uncomfortable—and was surprising—but that it was not perceived as an order to interfere in the probe. Mueller’s team, which has just begun its investigation in earnest, will ultimately decide whether such interactions are relevant to the Russia inquiry.
