Senator Burr: Intelligence Committee Has Found NO EVIDENCE of Trump/Russia Collusion

WASHINGTON, D.C. – File this under: Duh! After two years, hundreds of interviews, and granting the benefit of the doubt to every Trump-hater out there, the Senate Intelligence Committee has found no – ZERO – direct evidence of a conspiracy in which the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who chairs the committee, has given ample opportunity for such evidence to be proffered. So much so that it seemed as if he may have wanted to find evidence of collusion.

The reality is, though, there was never anything there beyond a smear campaign contrived by Democrats and some sloppy behavior by Trump associates that extended the narrative.

Further, Burr suggests that the Russian attempts to ‘influence the election’ were not, in his view, so motivated.

“This was not,” he stressed, “‘Let’s go screw with the Americans in 2016.'”

Burr added that they are nearing an end to the investigation as there are ‘no new questions to ask.’ You can read Burr’s full interview with CBS News here.
