The two intelligence officials refused to comply with Trump's request to publicly deny any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Washington: President Donald Trump urged two senior intelligence officials in March to publicly deny there was any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, the Washington Post reported on Monday, citing current and former officials.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency director Michael Rogers refused to comply with Trump‘s requests because they believed them inappropriate, according to two current and two former officials, the Post said.
