US intelligence chiefs attacked for refusing to answer Trump-Russia questions: 'What you feel is irrelevant'

US intelligence chiefs attacked for refusing to answer Trump-Russia questions: 'What you feel is irrelevant'Democrats have attacked US intelligence officials for refusing to answer questions publicly about whether Donald Trump asked them to influence an investigation into whether the President’s campaign advisers colluded with Russian officials. In a contentious Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, Admiral Michael Rogers, head of the National Security Agency (NSA), and Mr Trump’s intelligence director Dan Coats said they did not feel that it was appropriate to comment in an open session on classified conversations they have had with the President. Senator Angus King, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, asked on what legal basis the officials were not answering certain questions.
