@Zero Hedge | Not surprisingly, today's hearing on the review of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act quickly morphed into another Trump witch hunt as soon as the first Democrat on the committee, Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), was allotted time for questions.
Unfortunately, Warner didn't get the response he had hoped for when he asked Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Admiral Mike Rogers whether they had ever been pressured by the Trump administration to downplay the Russian investigation. Here are the headlines:
And here is the full quote from Coats:*NSA'S ROGERS: I'VE NEVER FELT PRESSURED TO DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL*NSA'S ROGERS: I'VE NEVER BEEN DIRECTED TO DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL*COATS: I'VE NEVER FELT PRESSURE TO SHAPE ONGOING INVESTIGATION
