Dumb Republican Sen. Richard Burr: Senate Intel Committee Has Made Criminal Referrals to Mueller


Richard Burr

Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) said on Friday the Committee has made criminal referrals to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The Gateway Pundit reported Thursday Michael Cohen’s guilty plea developed from a criminal referral from the Senate Intel Panel’s Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA).

On Friday, Burr revealed this to be true.

The Daily Caller reported:

“We have made referrals to the special prosecutor,” North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr said at a forum held at the University of Texas in Austin. “One instance just highlighted of late, is that the special prosecutor is using the transcripts of interviews that we have used in our committee to indict somebody for lying to Congress.”

“It’s a loud message to everybody who’s interviewed by our committee … if you lie to us we’re going to go after you,” the Republican added.

President Trump’s former lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen pleaded guilty Thursday morning to a new charge of lying to Congress after getting squeezed by Mueller.

The Senate Select Committee has interviewed over 20o witnesses, including Michael Cohen in January of 2017 regarding his role in building a Trump Tower in Moscow – a tower that was never even built.

The transcripts of the interview were then handed over to Robert Mueller.


Senator Burr said Friday that other criminal referrals were also submitted to Robert Mueller, however he did not offer any details.

Others interviewed by the Senate Intel Panel include Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and James Comey just to name a few.
