In Comey's written statement (we can assume has been vetted by a skilled legal team), he stated that Trump was asking for loyalty. Comey 's statement was clear that Trump was expecting something different than pledging allegiance to the USA. What do you think is going on in Trump's mind when he asks high ranking officials for their loyalty, and what does he expect from those who agree? Surely those who answer "yes, I shall be loyal" are not stupid and understand they are agreeing to something beyond doing their duty to serve the country.
It appears Trump may have asked NSA director (Micheal Rogers) and Director of National Intelligence (Dan Coats) that same loyalty question. Both refused to comment during the hearing whether or not Trump asked for their loyalty.... My guess is their attornies told them to refuse to answer such questions because if they had said "Yes" to Trump, it makes them look like they were agreeing to follow Trump 1st, everything else second.
Of course Coats & Rogers refused to give details to hearing members, giving sensitive information to those who do not have a need to know can be detrimental to Donald's position as commander in chief, as well as their own positions. It's too bad some congressional leader didn't stand up and say "you're obstructing this inquiry" and hold them in contempt. We can all assume that since they were unwilling to answer, there's something to hide, something they don't want to talk about, even though before the session began, they were sworn in to answer questions, and refused to do so. Trump's power over people is immense. Swearing on a bible means nothing to Trump's minions.
