Ahead of Coats' testimony Wednesday Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) spokesman Brian P. Hale told The Post in a statement that Coats "does not discuss his private conversations with the President".
The same committee will hold a hearing Wednesday on US surveillance laws, featuring Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

"I had understood the president to be requesting that we drop any investigation of Flynn in connection with his false statements about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in December", added Comey, who was sacked by Trump in early May.
On Thursday, millions of Americans will tune in to watch former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey testify before the Senate Intel Committee that the the President of the United States basically attempted to commit obstruction of justice - although not in those exact words. "He then said, 'I need loyalty.' I replied, 'You will always get honesty from me.' He paused and then said, 'That's what I want - honest, loyalty.' I paused and then said, 'You will get that from me'".
The poll found that 61% of American adults believe Trump fired Comey to protect himself, not the country.

Two weeks later, on February 14, Trump kicked Vice President Mike Pence, Sessions and other senior administration officials out of the Oval Office so he could have his one-on-one conversation with Comey, according to people briefed on one of Comey's memos. "I hope you can let this go".
The meeting also addressed the unverified dossier published by Buzzfeed that contained salacious material regarding a Trump visit to Russian Federation. It was the last time Comey spoke to Trump. "I expect loyalty" during a January dinner.
But that raises one of the questions Comey will have to answer in his testimony on Thursday. "There, unprompted, Sweet Baby James wrote that Trump, ".said he had nothing to do with Russian Federation, had not been involved with hookers in Russian Federation". Trump's shifting explanations for removing Comey provoked questions about his motivations, as did an interview with NBC News where Trump said he made his decision with "the Russian thing" on his mind. Democratic lawmakers told reporters on Capitol Hill yesterday they plan to nail down as much information from Comey as possible about his conversations with Trump. Sen. But Mr. Sessions could not guarantee that the president would not try to talk to Mr. Comey alone again, the officials said. "These are very serious matters, and I think Comey's testimony will probably be really important in terms of basic facts".
"What was the basis for that if that is an accurate statement?" When did it occur?
Justice Department spokesman Ian Prior declined to comment.
"The question for West Virginians is, 'If you knew, or you thought that there was obstruction of justice, why didn't you act on it?" "What were his concerns, and if there were deeper concerns, why wasn't anything done at that time?"
