Top Republican Lawmakers in Both Chambers Slam Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr For Issuing Don Jr. Subpoena

Richard Burr

Top Republican Senators and Representatives slammed Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr for issuing Donald Trump Jr. a subpoena over ‘Russia matters.’

The GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. to answer questions about his prior testimony to Senate investigators related to the Russia investigation by May 15.

Axios reported on the subpoena of Don Jr., the first subpoena of one of President Trump’s children (that we know of), citing “sources with direct knowledge.”

The Senate Intel Panel, chaired by RINO Richard Burr (R-NC) and co-chaired by the incredibly corrupt Mark Warner (D-VA) are purposely dragging out the Russia investigation and won’t be releasing a final report until the end of summer.

Republican lawmakers from both Chambers lashed out at Burr.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) slammed Burr — “Apparently the Republican chair of the Senate Intel Committee didn’t get the memo from the Majority Leader that this case was closed…” Paul said in a tweet.

In the other chamber, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) defended Donald Trump Jr. Wednesday.

“Donald Trump Jr has already spent dozens of hours testifying in front of Congressional committees. Endless investigations—by either party—won’t change the fact that there was NO collusion. It’s time to move on. It’s time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations.” McCarthy said.

Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY) suggested Burr is taking orders from the unhinged ‘resistance’ Democrats (Mark Warner).

Other notable conservatives such as Dr. Gorka slammed Burr. “The Senate should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this,” Dr. Gorka said.

Political operative and close friend to Donald Trump Jr., Arthur Schwartz posted a cryptic warning.

“Politicians who can’t keep their zippers closed shouldn’t start wars in Washington,” Schwartz warned.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has not said a word yet about the subpoena — he must speak out about this abuse of power under his watch because he just said from the Senate floor Tuesday that as far as the Trump-Russia witch hunt is concerned, it’s “case closed!”
