Senate Intel Committee Chair: No Evidence of Trump - Russia Collusion


After two years, the conclusion on whether President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia has been reached. The chairman of the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee, Republican Sen. Richard Burr, told CBS News that there is no evidence of Trump - Russia collusion.

Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat, have reportedly found absolutely no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.

“If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia,” Burr told CBS News. Things are expected to wrap up quickly and their final report will be presented soon. We know we’re getting to the bottom of the barrel because there are no new questions that we’re searching for answers to,” Burr said.

The Senate investigation has included more than 200 witness interviews and the review of thousands of documents regarding the 2016 election and foreign meddling. The investigation began around the same time as a House Intelligence Committee investigation was launched in early 2017.

“He and Democratic Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the committee, have largely operated in sync during the Senate probe,” The Daily Caller reported.

Republicans on the House committee released a report in April 2018 that also said there was no evidence of collusion. At the time, Democrats and the mainstream media dismissed the report’s findings.

House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-C.A., was accused of failing to conduct a full investigation and of being friendly with the White House.

Burr has received no such criticism from Democrats — adding significant weight to the conclusion.
