Under repeated questioning, Sen. Burr won’t say he’s seen evidence that Ukraine interfered in 2016. https://t.co/FyoLB7AikD
There are *so many things wrong* with Sen. Burr's responses in this interview, I don't know where to start. But I guess here's a good spot: media did *not* say that Russian officials just having a *preference* for Trump was "election meddling." And Burr saying so is *outrageous*. https://t.co/W8yxVtWA85
There have been a lot of sad episodes of pathetic Republican senator shows us how weak he/she is. But Burr ignoring his own committee’s report because he got shit on for daring to question junior is even worse than Lindsey’s endless ass-kissing.
The Ukrainian government didn’t commit crimes against Americans and then use stolen goods as part of a propaganda campaign meant to destroy one candidate. But Burr understands this and is trying to gaslight people anyway. https://t.co/AnXKmoQkRk
Y’all can keep calling him Richard if you like, but after the shit he said today, he’ll always be Dick Burr to me.
Why doesn't @SenJohnKennedy
simply ask his GOP colleague Sen. Burr what Senate Intel Committee learned abt Ukraine & 2016 election? SSCI has USGOVT evidence, or lack thereof, of role Ukraine did or did not play to interfere.
SSCI should release its investigative report ASAP. https://t.co/qMx4pyA4wn
North Carolina, can't vote out Richard Burr because he already said he isn't running for reelection in 2022.
What we can do is cancel him out by getting rid of Thom Tillis in 2020.
Let's take a Senate seat back in North Carolina now and later. https://t.co/o245zCE4Yf
Technically most of America was for Clinton, too, not really sure that's the smoking gun Burr thinks it is. https://t.co/EUD6MbCfwl
Q: Is there any evidence that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election?
BURR: I don’t think there’s any question that elected officials in Ukraine had a favorite in the election.
Sen BURR: "You considered Russia meddling with just the preference they had before you knew the rest of it. Apply the same standard to Ukraine. The President can say that they meddled because they had a preference, the elected officials, that's not the current people."
8/ So when Burr says Ukrainians supporting longstanding US policy in Europe is *the same as* Trump supporting Russian war crimes, there's no jury that'd come to that conclusion. In fact even making the argument is risible; almost like saying—as Trump did—we should kill civilians.
I wrote this retrospective on Sen. Burr’s work while a formal advisor on Trump Campaign in 2016–including his public rejection of Russian interference on behalf of Trump despite his being briefed about it by intelligence community:
Q: Would you consider that meddling?
BURR: I mean, you’ll have to define meddling, but that was something that was publicly out there.
Russia waged a deliberate and well-funded influence operation, ordered by Putin, that included the hack-and-leak of Democratic emails and widespread social media targeting, as Burr’s own committee concluded.
That is not the same thing as having a preference. https://t.co/kNm0HGzx11
Shame on Burr. Russia’s attack was NOT trivial “meddling”! It was a sweeping & systematic multi-pronged information warfare assault!! Republicans are exploiting the fact that we don’t even have language that adequately describes what happened! That’s how novel an attack it was!
WHOA -- GOP Senator Richard Burr refuses to tell reporters whether his committee’s investigation confirmed GOP conspiracy theory on Ukraine
Burr, to this point, has been inclined towards some semblance of facts and truth. This turn towards Putinesque propaganda is disturbing. Highly disturbing. https://t.co/RGS07o392E
Richard Burr is retiring in 2022.
Tillis is up next year.
Dems will take both seats.
Too many people have the impression that @SenatorBurr
is reliable simply because he’s not as loudly supportive of 45 as some. Sure he’s reliable—for the GOP only. He’s extremely partisan and not to be trusted. Compare his voting record to anyone: https://t.co/b7HeIvFiA1 https://t.co/espNDwOkPq
