Coats said several investigations of Trump campaign links with Russian Federation "are in place to get us to the right conclusion with a known result", so the country can move on to deal with other issues.
In an ironic twist, current and former Trump administration and campaign officials are reportedly being represented by the WilmerHale law firm, where Mueller worked as a partner prior to his appointment as special counsel. The Post said Trump, acting after then FBI Director James Comey revealed there was an investigation into the matter, made the same request of National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers. Jack Reed, D-R.I., pressed Coats on whether a president reaching out in such a manner would be appropriate.
Mr Coats later said that the Russian Federation probes - which are being conducted by a special prosecutor, as well as by committees in the Senate and House of Representatives - "are in place to get us to the right conclusion so we can move on". Coats refused to comment on a news report that PresidentDonald Trumpasked him to publicly deny any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.
Finally, there are Trump's own comments in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt when he said that he chose to fire Comey after saying to himself, "this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won".

The White House has denied that Trump pressured Comey in any way.
Current and former senior intelligence officials viewed Trump's requests as an attempt by the president to tarnish the credibility of the agency leading the Russian Federation investigation.
One source added that part of Mueller's investigation is expected to focus on obstruction of justice.
Democrats have been calling for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint a special prosecutor to oversee the case, and last week they got their wish as Rosenstein tapped former FBI Director Robert Mueller to take the reins.
