Burr Claims “No Hard Evidence of Collusion”

Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Sen Richard Burr, (R-NC) said on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” that currently his investigation yielded “no hard evidence of collusion”  between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Burr stated, “I can say as it relates to the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation that we have no hard evidence of collusion. Now, we’re not over. That leaves the opportunity that we might find something that we don’t have today. But the fact is that if this is all about collusion and our investigation encompasses more than collusion, that issue has not been finalized at all.”

He added, “If you asked me 19 months ago would we be over today, I would say yes. We found a lot of things we didn’t anticipate we would find. We’ve had to chase a lot of threads that needed to be chased. I hope to complete this at some point before the end of the year. It will take probably three to six months to write the final report. But we’ve been charged with making a determination as to what happened and conveying that with facts to the American people to let them make their minds up. I still intend to do that.”
He closed, “Maybe we find something in the next several interviews that are evidence of collusion. I don’t think so with what we’ve seen.”

    To use an old quote most are familiar with, “If the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit”. This nonsense has gone on long enough against Trump. It is harming our nation and allowing too many who have committed crimes against our democracy to not be prosecuted.

    How about just take out the “hard” and simply say “there is no evidence of collusion”.

      Thanks, that was my exact thought when I read the headline.

    As I see it plainly everyone hates President Trump for several reasons. ONE HE IS DRAINING THE SWAMP OF LOTS OF CORRUPTION,LIES,HATRED. TWO, ALL THE POLITICIANS HATE HIM BECAUSE HE CANNOT BE BOUGHT LIKE THEM. THREE HE GOES TO THE BEAT OF A BUSINESS MAN AND NOT SOME SNIVELING LOW LIFE LYING POLITICIAN WHO NEVER RAN A BUSINESS. TO BOOT HIS LIES ARE MORE TRUTH THAN THEIRS. NOT TO MENTION HE IS GETTING THE JOB DONE FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    The only collusion has been on part of Dems and Hilary, but the worst that they have found is the corruption on top FBI officials

    Hope springs eternal among Democrats, RINOs and Establishment. After nearly TWO YEARS, NO EVIDENCE FOUND, because there is NO EVIDENCE, just a WITCH HUNT.

    “These allegations are both persistent and disturbing,” “We have no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, but the seriousness of the allegations, and the weight of circumstantial information, compel an effort to establish the facts.”

      Good point, mule head should probably be gently reminded what happened to beria – after he had outlived any usefulness he may have had…………NOT a threat by any means, just a reminder.

    1) “Collusion” is not defined as a crime under US law. At no time in history has being told “I have dirt on you opponent” by someone been grounds to be prosecuted or removed from any office.

    2) No evidence exists against Trump but lots exist against Hilary and the DNC.

    3) The same screaming about FOREIGN COLLUSION or ELECTION MEDDLING are actively trying to allow NON CITIZENS to MEDDLE in our elections by UNCONSTITUTIONALLY voting in them. Not being US CITIZENS they are FOREIGN citizens and thus HAVE NO CONSTITUTIONAL rights much less the one to vote in our elections.

    When the INITIAL evidence used to start this turned out to be FAKE the investigation should have ended then and there just like any normal case against someone instead they EXPANDED even seizing without legal warrant the files of a lawyer just because Trump was ONE of his clients.

    Think about the legal response by the ACLU if they had a WARRANT to search for item a in suspect x’s living room when they could not find it there they EXPANDED by searching the entire house still not finding item a they then start searching the homes of PEOPLE who worked for x then still not finding it looking for ANY ITEM they can use to claim guilt in order to justify the entire mess they created all despite a warrant that SPECIFIED ITEM A, and THE LIVING ROOM as the extent of their authority.

    The ACLU would have them paying thousands if not millions for violation of suspect x’s CIVIL RIGHTS. Yet logically this is what has gone on with the Trump investigation not finding PROOF of the accusations made in the dossier proven fake by confession of its creator they expanded the investigation and continue to this day making new unfounded accusations as the last one is proven false just to continue investigating Trump.

    After all it worked to cost others they opposed their elections simply by using the formula of PAYING someone to make a false accusation shortly before an election with insufficient time to go to trial and “PROVE they are innocent” with the media acting as if guilt was certain they get to win the election even when it is later proved that is how they won NO PROSECUTIONS are made despite the SLANDER, LIABLE, and in some cases FALSE POLICE REPORTS filed just to destroy their political oppositions reputation going into the election.

    Remember how that one later CONFESSED they wrote the yearbook entry themselves even after that the media continue to spout she was a VICTIM that the crime HAD to have happened simply because she MADE THE ACCUSATION as if no one upset about a ruling in their divorce would LIE about the one handing out that ruling even if years later at a time when it would mess up his election to some office.
