President Donald Trump reportedly asked the heads of American intelligence agencies to counter the FBI's investigation of collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian entities.

Trump requested both Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats and Director of the National Security Agency Admiral Michael Rogers to deny any collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia, the Washington Post reports.

According to officials, both Coats and Rogers refused to cooperate with Trump's request.

This reportedly occurred after former FBI Director James Comey told Congress in a hearing on March 20 that there was an investigation concerning individuals in Trump's campaign and Russia.

Senior NSA officials wrote notes at the time detailing the meeting between Trump and Rogers. It is not known if there was a memo or notes written pertaining to Trump's meeting with Coats.

Both Coats' office and the NSA refused to comment to the Washington Post.
