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.

Hammer-Wielding Trump Supporter Arrested After Threatening Latino Couple: ‘Get Out Of My Country!’

Published

President Donald Trump has sparked a radical movement led by racism and hatred in America. That being said, this past weekend, a hammer-wielding Trump supporter was arrested after she threatened a Latino couple and told them to go back to their country.

According to KPRC-TV, 60-year-old Constance Lynn Bono was arrested on Sunday after she brought out a hammer and threatened Arturo Corovez and his wife, Dr. Lia Franco.

Bono reportedly told the couple to “go back to Mexico.” The couple is actually from Ecuador.

Dr. Franco has actually been stationed in New Orleans to help take care of COVID-19 patients while she finishes her medical residency.

The couple decided to take a trip to Texas over the weekend to take a break. That’s when they were confronted by the vicious Trump supporter.

They noticed a woman following behind them while driving to a restaurant, and noticed she was displaying a hammer as she drove.

“She stopped behind us,” Cordovez said. “After that she started showing a hammer through the mirror. She was shaking her arm … and cursing at us, I think. I was thinking, what did I do?”

They called 911 and pulled into a gas station, where the woman pulled alongside them and began screaming.

“She said screamed, ‘You Mexicans, get out of my f*cking country, go back to your f*cking country,’” Franco said.

Then the woman got out of her car holding the hammer and made threatening motions before police arrived and took her into custody.

According to the report, Bono was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony with a punishment range of up to 20 years in prison.

If prosecutors believe she was motivated by racism, the charge could be enhanced to a first-degree felony, carrying a possible life sentence.

“I think she needs help, she needs treatment, but that doesn’t justify the fact she needs to follow the laws of her country,” Franco said. “If she broke the laws here, she needs to pay for what she did. But for me as a physician, I think the most important thing is she needs treatment, she needs help.”
