Skip to comments.DNI Director Coats To Testify In Closed Session Before Senate Intel Committee
Posted on 06/15/2017 2:21:33 PM PDT by blam
According to NBC, the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats will go back before the Senate Intelligence Committee tomorrow to answer questions in a closed session. This new hearing comes after Coats testified before the same committee in an open session last week but refused to discuss direct conversations with the President in a public session.
Of course, just like with Comeys private session, somehow we suspect that if anything material is divulged in tomorrows private session with Coats it will be promptly leaked to the media.
As we pointed out last week, Intel Committee Vice Chair Mark Warner didnt get the response he had hoped for when he asked DNI Director 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:
*NSAS ROGERS: IVE NEVER FELT PRESSURED TO DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL
*NSAS ROGERS: IVE NEVER BEEN DIRECTED TO DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL
*COATS: IVE NEVER FELT PRESSURE TO SHAPE ONGOING INVESTIGATION
And here is the full quote from Coats:
In my time of service in interacting with the President of the United States, or anybody in his administration, I have never been pressured, I have never felt pressure to intervene or interfere in any way with shaping intelligence in a political way or in relationship to an ongoing investigation
But, and to our complete shock we might add, democrats and the mainstream media ignored the most relevant comments of the entire hearing, namely that, like Comey, none of the witnesses had ever felt pressured by Trump to intervene or interfere in any way, and instead decided to focus on Coats unwillingness to openly discuss his private conversations with the President.

This will go on forever.
“This will go on forever”

Maybe these bastards are threatening/blackmailing them with a deal they cant refuse to recant and change their testimony.
PEOPLE ARE NOW GETTING SHOT BECAUSE OF THIS! PLEASE PRESIDENT TRUMP SHUT THIS SHIT DOWN NOW! LIBTARD FEELINGS BE DAMNED!!!
Why are only Republicans being scrutinized while Dems get immunity?
If you think really hard you know the answer, and it contains the word globalism.
Thank Republicans. We need a list of the problem Republicans so if we can’t get them out in primary we can have someone run third party to get them out. They really are the worst.
