FBI Deliver Search Warrant to Senator Richard Burr Seize Cell Phone (Impartiality Optics)
The Last Refuge ^ | May 14, 2020 | Sundance

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 this year 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. The 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.

This makes sense to me, sets the table for when other indictments arrests rain down on the other side.

No one will be able to claim it's a partisan witch hunt when the arrests led off with Senator Burr, Republican from NC.

yeah ok.

Too many here (myself included) concoct the most elaborate, ridiculous reasons something was done in order to give ourselves some hope :)

Like when Sessions was playing 36DDD chess, etc :)

There’s chess being played.

But the only ones willing to move our pieces are Trump and a few others.

Oh, you work in the U.S. Attorney General's office? Why didn't you say?

Nice post. Agree. Without investigating all of them, this is a witch hunt.
Just moved back to the peoples republic of NC. May look up his record. There aren’t many conservatives in NC leadership.

There is a huge difference between Loeffler and Burr. Loeffler is married to the chairman of the NYSE and is having her portfolio managed by people who have as much and maybe more information than Congress does. She also has so much money she dumped everything just to avoid the aggravation. Burr had nothing but what he knew from hearings and the stocks made up the majority of net worth.

With wray in charge, and a good number of deep state actors, only following the orders of their DNC overlords, could just be the deep state destroying evidence.

Unlikely, but maybe playing WITH a 36DDD chest.

Dammit! I don’t care if Burr is the biggest RINO to ever be a RINO in the history of this country, this is complete BS!!! Once again, there’s a legitimate scandal of insider trading, and this time both RATS and the GOP have perpetrators. And of course, who gets visited by the FBI very publicly? The GOP Senator!! Of course! Not Dianne Feinstein....nooo way!

Burr is a low life scum bag and fits right in with the swamp dwellers.

He is not alone when it comes to dealing from the bottom of the deck, but he is so obvious, and is a pubbie, so he is an easy target.

Even hard righties have no mercy for him but the good news is that the slime bucket is not up for election until 2022 so we don't have to sweat losing another seat in 2020.
