Group Files Ethics Complaint Against Sen. Richard Burr for Obstructing Trump-Russia Investigation

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was hit with an ethics complaint by the Democratic Coalition, accusing him of obstructing the Trump-Russia investigation.

According to a news release, Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Super PAC, “argued that the committee must investigate why Burr is impeding the investigation that Americans broadly support.”

Dworkin said, “Senator Richard Burr has made a complete mockery of the office he holds. The American people deserve to know what really happened. What’s Burr afraid of? What’s he working so hard to hide?”

Executive Director Nate Lerner added: “This investigation has stalled because Republicans are more focused on taking away people’s healthcare and cutting taxes for the rich than they are about the erosion of our democracy. That’s just gross. They should be ashamed.”
