Ethics Complaint Filed Against Senate Intel Chair Richard Burr As GOP Russia Cover-Up Exposed

An ethics complaint has been filed against the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) for obstructing the progress of the investigation into the Trump campaign’s potential collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

The Democratic Coalition Against Trump has called for an investigation into why Sen. Burr is impeding the Trump/Russia probe.

Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor Senior Adviser to The Democratic Coalition Against Trump, said in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, “Senator Richard Burr has made a complete mockery of the office he holds. The American people deserve to know what really happened. What’s Burr afraid of? What’s he working so hard to hide?”

Executive Director Nate Lerner added, “This investigation has stalled because Republicans are more focused on taking away people’s healthcare and cutting taxes for the rich than they are about the erosion of our democracy. That’s just gross. They should be ashamed.”

Sen. Burr served as the national security adviser to Trump’s campaign, so if Trump colluded with Russia, Burr is up to his eyes in it too. Sen. Burr also bragged to North Carolina voters during the 2016 campaign that there was “no separation” between himself and Trump, and he took credit for getting Hillary Clinton’s emails investigated.

The reason why the Russia scandal poses a threat to the entire Republican Party is that it reaches beyond the White House. The scandal impacts the House and Senate too. One should not look at the Russia/Trump scandal as an Executive Branch only issue. The Republican-controlled Legislative Branch of the federal government is also deeply involved, which is why it impossible to see how the Legislative Branch is capable of carrying out the type of investigation that is needed.

An independent investigation that will take place outside of partisan politics is needed to get to the bottom of the Trump campaign’s relationship with Russia.

Richard Burr is Devin Nunes in a nicer suit, which is why Burr must be investigated and removed from overseeing the Senate Judiciary Committee’s probe into Trump and Russia.
