FBI Deliver Search Warrant to Senator Richard Burr – Seize Cell Phone…

It likely takes a lot of main justice approvals to serve a search warrant for the device of the Chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI).  The Chairman of the powerful committee also sits on the congressional oversight team known as the gang-of-eight.

According to the Los Angeles Times the FBI served a search warrant on North Carolina Republican Senator Richard Burr Wednesday. The warrant appears connected to an ongoing investigation on whether or not Burr violated a law that prevents members of Congress from trading insider information they learn from their work.  According to the report federal agents seized Burr’s cell phone after they served the warrant at his residence in the Washington DC area.

The sketchy guardian of swamp secrets is retiring at the end of his term so he’s probably just willing to wait out the investigation and negotiate with the DC justice-tier to pay a fine and move on.  DC has a totally different set of laws and outcomes than everywhere else.  Any fine, and any resulting legal expenses, will likely be paid by a lobbying firm or political interest group who previously contracted with, and received benefit from, Senator Burr.

It’s the way of the swamp.

    hmm…wonder what he has to wrap up that he needs to stay on through Friday. Also, wonder who his replacement will be.

    It’s a lot of fun speculating what is going on, but it should be more revealing when Mitch names his replacement.

    In a similar way a heat shield protects a space capsule on its fiery return to earth, I suspect this action against Burr is an alabative armor to protect the Deep State. By allowing the outer surface to absorb the heat, it is then discarded, carrying away the heat and preserving the host.
    This is nothing but a diversion. They are throwing a bone to hungry dogs (us).

    I hope they do the same to Congresswoman Donna Shalala (remember her from prior admin.?)! https://www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/article242178846.html

    Replace Burr with a unchained pitbull and put a leash on Warner. Shift some things around and move Rand Paul over to Burr’s slot. Unfortunately, jellyfish McConnell probably won’t do that…. unless he figures it’s time to prove he has a spine.

    I also note that Andy Lack was pushed out at NBC last week.

  8. Now that we’ve displayed nonpartisanship by going after Burr, we can move forward and get Nasty Pelosi for the $3mil she invested in CV benefited companies and nail Diane Frankenstein without them crying the whole thing was politically motivated.

    I hope Mitch appoints Senator Tom Cotton as new Senate Intel Chairman rather than Rubio or his fellow RINOS Coryn, Shaky Collins, Risch, or Blunt. No wonder Warner has been able to rule over Burr so easily. I have not seen any pushback from the Rinos about the joint Warner-Burr Russia-Russia-Russia report. Start calling Mitch to stop being a douche-canoe and appoint Cotton as he is the ONLY MEMBER to have faced our enemy in combat!!!

    You have this wrong. This is the Deep State making sure evidence doesn’t end up in Durham’s hands.

    Note to Mitch: Give Tom Cotton the Chair. The scope of a search warrant is spelled out in the warrant. If additional evidence is found of other crimes, the scope of the warrant can be expanded.

    Burr NC-RINO) is a good choice to go after. He’s a weak sister, who, if handled roughly enough, would pee his pants and drop a dime on Warner and the rest of SSCI co-conspirators.

    While this couldn’t happen to a better RINO, I’m wondering why we’re not hearing about search warrants and seizures of phones from Loeffler, Feinstein, Pelosi and the rest of the fabulously rich, insider-trading congresscritters, who have lavishly profited for decades, from exactly the same criminal behavior.
