It seems Richard Burr is not going to let Thom Tilli$$$ earn that suckweasel certification uncontested. Burr is chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, but instead of showing some leadership he’s following Democrat Mark Warner around like a puppy on this Russian election meddling nonsense. The genius is even defending Warner in the wake of the revelations Warner was creeping around secretly communicating with the dossier crowd:
[…] An aide to Burr, the Republican chairman, told Fox News that Burr was aware of the “contact” Warner made with Steele’s representative but added, “I don’t believe he was aware of the content of the text messages” initially.
The senators released a joint statement to Fox News stressing they are working together, while blasting the “leaks of incomplete information.” […]
Well, we know Burr preferred the idea of President Bernie Sanders to the idea of President Ted Cruz. The way he’s blindly supporting this Russian election-meddling fairy tale makes you think he also preferred President Hillary Clinton to President Donald Trump.
Let’s switch gears to the recently-passed budget deal. Tilli$$$, we know, blasted Rand Paul for daring to question this orgy of new and expanded spending. Burr voted against the deal, while Tilli$$$ voted for it. Before you get excited, let’s learn MORE:
[…] Burr and Tillis both praised the bill in a joint press release Thursday noting the more than $125 million it contains for additional Hurricane Matthew recovery efforts.
Burr said in the release that the money would allow areas hit by Matthew “to not only rebuild, but undertake mitigation projects to take proactive steps to lessen the effects of future storms. … I look forward to the President signing this legislation.”
On Friday, Burr said he “voted against the final legislation because it continued the funding of certain intelligence activities without requiring authorization by the Intelligence Committees. […]
So, never mind the fact that this “deal” went against everything you’ve told us in your campaigns about smaller government, fixing the debt and controlling spending. Never mind that it grew the mountain of debt and red tape our children and grandchildren will have to deal with down the road.
The “deal” was bad because your ego was not sufficiently stroked, and your chairmanship of an unconstitutional, of questionable legality, committee was not paid enough attention ??? (#SMDH)
