The New York Times reported on the Obama administration's late-stage scramble to preserve intelligence linking the Trump campaign to Russian Federation.
The report claims that former President Barack Obama had not been personally involved in what the senior officials did, but it seems that President Trump does not believe it.
Warner also said he expects Coats cooperate fully with the committee's Russia probe, including any "inappropriate" contacts that individuals associated with Trump may have had with the Russians.
Coats said he would cooperate fully with the committee's investigation into reports that the Russian government meddled in last year's US presidential election by hacking into Democratic Party computers.
Obama White House officials therefore reportedly pursued a deliberate strategy aimed at preserving evidence for investigators and ensuring any interference was not repeated.
Among other bipartisan concerns raised Tuesday was whether Coats would support efforts to renew the NSA's authority to collect information on Americans' phone calls to prevent more attacks, under what is known as Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act. Reports were also kept at a relatively low level of classification to ensure as wide a readership as possible across the government and, in some cases, European allies.
In one instance, the State Department sent a cache of documents marked "secret" to Sen.
"Until that evidentiary burden has been satisfied, I don't know why Republicans or Democrats are talking about special counsel", said Gowdy, a House Intelligence Committee member. The information they smuggled out before the ash rained down shows that the connections between the Trump team and Russian Federation were even more numerous than expected. "You had me at hello for going after foreign threats, but I'm not there on innocent Americans".
Regardless, things are still tense between the United States and Russian Federation, and things have been that way for quite some time despite efforts to the contrary, so you will have to forgive me if I feel less than optimistic about the president's ability to incite some sort of politically miraculous reversal of ill will. In terms of him being behind things, that's politics.
Not long after, news organizations reported that Trump was considering bringing in a friend, financier Stephen Feinberg, to do a "review" of the intelligence community.
February 14: Spicer says Trump asked for Flynn's resignation because of trust issues with the national security adviser.
The intelligence agencies and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are looking into the extent of contacts that Trump's associates may have had with Russian officials before and after the November 8 election.
It appears that President Trump would be much more comfortable if the United States had a news service like the Russian government. But they made clear their confirmation votes hinge on the Indiana Republican's commitment to help them in ongoing Russian Federation probes. And the Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI investigated Sessions' Russian contacts as part of the broader Russia probe. "The call centered around the logistics of setting up a call with the President of Russian Federation and the President-elect after he was sworn in, and they exchanged the logistical information", Spicer says.
The White House has since said it would revise its goals for the National Security Council and Trump has cast doubt on whether he'd actually order the review to be undertaken by Feinberg. "There continues to be no there, there", he told the newspaper.
