Trump Reportedly Asked Intelligence Agency Officials To Refute FBI Statement On Russian Investigation
It is an abuse of presidential authority to ask intelligence officials to get involved in domestic politics. Trump apparently does not care about any limit on his power. His request was not followed by the agency heads that he asked to intervene. They know what the rules are. Trump does not know, or he ignores any limits on his authority. The intelligence officials may be asked to testify in the investigations that underway. They did think it was proper to confirm or deny the reports.
