Republican Intel Chief Sen. Richard Burr Cover Up For Trump As Russia Hacked The 2016 Election

Published

Senate Intel Chief Richard Burr (R-NC), who declared last week that the Senate intel committee found “no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia,” is now himself in the middle of the election scandal for covering up for Donald Trump as Russia attacked the 2016 election.

Burr, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, repeatedly denied evidence of Russian meddling on behalf of President Trump even after briefings from the intelligence community proved otherwise, according to a Wednesday report from Just Security.

As a member of the Gang of Eight and the Gang of Twelve—a group of top-level lawmakers authorized to receive national-security intelligence—Burr was repeatedly presented with evidence showing that Russian agents had hacked the Democratic National Committee, were working to help Trump win, and were targeting state-level voting systems.

However, on Oct. 3, 2016, he told Foreign Policy that “I have yet to see anything that would lead me to believe” that Russia was meddling in the election to help Trump. Just Security adds that Burr was also the only person who joined the Trump campaign who was privy to intelligence showing that members of the Trump campaign may have been colluding with Russia.

2nd GOP Senator Busted: Sen. Kelly Loeffler Dumped Millions In Stock After Receiving Coronavirus Briefing

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) sold millions in stock after receiving a private coronavirus briefing, days before the market plunge, a new report by The Daily Beast revealed on Thursday.

The Georgia Republican is the second senator who has gotten rid of their holdings right as the stock market went bad.

The first was Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who pocketed $1.6 million after dumping stocks after the briefing.

“The Senate’s newest member sold off seven figures worth of stock holdings in the days and weeks after a private, all-Senators meeting on the novel coronavirus that subsequently hammered U.S. equities,” The Beast reported Thursday.

“Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) reported the first sale of stock jointly owned by her and her husband on January 24, the very day that her committee, the Senate Health Committee, hosted a private, all-Senators briefing from administration officials, including the CDC Director and Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institutes of Health of the United States, on the coronavirus.”

Loeffler tweeted about it at the time.
