Senate Committee Hearing With Intelligence Chiefs

Eric Trump: We have no dealings, no projects with Russia

"You can clear an bad lot up by simply saying it never happened", Heinrich later said.

ROGERS: I stand by my previous statement, sir.

"I don't understand why you're not answering our questions", Sen.

Senator Angus King (I- ME) grilled the intel chiefs testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee today about why they weren't answering any of the questions being posed to them.

WARNER: Do you feel that those conversations were classified? Is there an invocation by the President of the United States of executive privilege. Rogers told the Senate committee he never felt pressured by the White House.

"What you feel isn't relevant, admiral", King fired back. The answer is, why are you not answering the questions?

"It's hard to avoid the conclusion that the President's decision to remove Director Comey was related to this investigation", said Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), Chair, Senate Intelligence Committee. Rogers said he hoped he would be able to answer the senators' questions during a classified briefing in the future.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the second-ranking official at the Department of Justice who signed a letter recommending Comey's dismissal, will testify, a day ahead of Comey's own hotly anticipated testimony in the investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 USA election. There are reports out in the press that the president privately appealed you, Admiral Rogers, and to you, Director Coats, to downplay the Russian Federation investigation. I'm disappointed with that answer, but I - and I told you I was going to bring this up.

"The committee requested a hearing on the re-authorization of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act - a critical tool that protects our national security - and that is what the deputy attorney general will be there to discuss tomorrow".

"The chair is going to exercise its right to allow the witnesses to answer the question, and committee is on notice to provide witnesses the courtesy, which has not been extended all the way across", Burr said.

Those questions did not get far.

In an interview on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" following the hearing, Republican Sen. - Coats also declined to comment, noting that it would be "inappropriate" to share such information in a public session.

Following the hearing, Wyden vented to reporters that the intelligence community witnesses did not say "much of anything except what they wanted to in talking points". "Coats discussed the conversation with other officials and decided that intervening with Comey as Trump had suggested would be inappropriate".

The conversation occurred the day after the president asked Mr Comey to end the investigation into Mr Flynn during a private dinner, according to the New York Times.
