Burr? Helms he is surely not!
I’m just wondering how much dirt the RATs have on Burr.
Pull his chairmanship immediately!
Does anyone know the procedure for picking a new chairman? Can the members vote another one in? Are there enough rinos to stop if if they have a vote?
When youve lost Tillis, you know youve really gone full retard...
Burr has always been Warner’s bitch. He should be stripped of his chairmanship.
LOL!! He is going to get an offer he can’t refuse.
When you’re dealing with the RINOs-—THERE IS ALWAYS ONE LEFT!
Not anymore. The circle against them is much larger and more ruthless than you can possibly think.

I have zero problem with Burr’s subpoena and I see the freakout about it as a sign of weakness/panic on GOP’s part (Don’t care much either tho). But I love the line from Rand Paul making it sound like GOP senators should just do whatever Mitch tells them.

Burrs biggest donor was Paul Singer. Singer was the funder of Fusion GPS when he was pushing Romney in 2016. Now Romey is considering a 2020 run.
Draw your own conclusions
Committee chairs are almost always based on seniority, with the condition that a senator can only chair one ‘major’ committee and can only chair the same committee for six years.
It is possible to have a secret ballot in committee to switch chairmen, but in reality it’s almost impossible.
Note that then-Judiciary chair Grassley took the lead on the ‘collusion’ charges to keep it out of Burr’s hands. Graham lacks the savvy of Grassley.
Limbaugh like his brother is incorrect. The Dems are saying that Barr got two lettesr from Mueller (25 and 27 March) after he sent his letter to Congress on March 24. The 27th letter said there were some summaries in the 25th letter that Barr should release to the public. "There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation" meaning "we want to smear Trump and you didn't go along with that" Then Barr answered possibly related questions in the appropriations hearings in April.
From the fake news:
No, I dont, Barr said, when asked by Rep. Charlie Crist (D-Fla.) whether he knew what was behind reports that members of Muellers team were frustrated by the attorney generals summary of their top-level conclusions.
I dont know, he said the next day, when asked by Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) whether Mueller supported his finding that there was not sufficient evidence to conclude that President Trump had obstructed justice.
With that, the dem/media says Barr is lying. To say the issue is only about Barr's public letter on March 24th is an oversimplification. The Dem/media claim is that Barr should have released the Mueller March 25th and 27th letters and summaries as the answer to the questions in the appropriations hearings, or acknowledged the existence of those. But Barr obviously can release whatever he wants from Mueller or not, his choice. Furthermore Barr specifically acknowledged there were other summaries and he didn't want to release those. Mainly, Barr has no need or requirement to speculate on the motives of Mueller's team who obviously sent the letters and leaked the March 27th letter to the media. Their motivation is probably that they hate Trump. But arr has no requirement to read their minds.
".. Crist, April 9: Reports have emerged recently that members of the special counsels team are frustrated at some level with the limited information included in your March 24th letter, that it does not adequately or accurately, necessarily, portray the reports findings. Do you know what theyre referencing with that?
Barr: No, I dont. I think, I think, I suspect that they probably wanted, you know, more put out. But in my view, I was not interested in putting out summaries or trying to summarize, because I think any summary regardless of who prepares it not only runs the risk of, you know, being under-inclusive or over-inclusive but also, you know, would trigger a lot of discussion and analysis that really should await everything coming out at once."
And a couple weeks later he issued the full report less a few redactions suggested by DOJ only. Trump's WH did not ask for any redactions, even though they had the right to do so.
It's LameStreamMedia working with their DemonRat butt buddies pushing more lies.
I don’t think he is running again.
Very disappointed in him.
I got into an email conversation with the other NC Senator Thom Tillis over his ‘Wall’ stance. He finally voted with the Pres on that issue.
Now we have the other NC Senator turncoat.
I’m going to be very selective in the primaries this time.
Incumbent won’t mean squat this time.
Can’t the gobbler remove him from his chair assignment?
Quisling-— that’s all this sick, weak man is.
More social media riddles that turn out to be wrong.
Burr is bad news.
Traitor is what he is and punished he will be. He is not the law we are.
