Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr is a giant roadblock in the investigation into Donald Trump’s Russia scandal, as he recently refused to sign off on some documents, thereby making everyone question what he may be hiding.
Burr’s protection of Trump and his entire administration continued at Jeff Sessions’ Senate Intelligence Hearing today, as we proceeded to softball Sessions every chance he got. Why the protection of Trump and his cronies? Well, we may now know why.
It’s being reported that Richard Burr has investments in an oil drilling company linked to a Russian oil company, which doesn’t look good for him considering the fact that he refuses, as Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman, to sign off on documents that would allow the Russian probe to continue.
Scott Dworkin of the Democratic Coalition Against Trump posted documents showing the relationship between National Oilwell Varro Inc. and Russia’s Rosneft. His investment appears to be over $20,000, which is just a small part of his 2 million dollar net-worth, but it doesn’t stop there.
Scott Dworkin reports that Burr has some other ties linking him to Kremlin.
Burr was the beneficiary of $8.1 million from Mitch McConnell Super PAC, which took millions from a pro-Putin Ukrainian. Depending on how that money was divided up, it could be well above that $20,000.
The red flags on this guy should already be waving all over the place. Given his unwillingness to aide in the investigation, maybe someone needs to start looking further into where his money is going and coming from.
These men cannot be trusted. Clearly, Russian ties and money run deep in this circle.
