Obstruction of Trump Agenda Continues: McConnell’s Decepticon Republican Richard Burr, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Subpoenas Donald Trump Jr.

Elder Patriot – Republican Decepticons will never forgive Donald Trump for his hostile takeover of their party.

They were perfectly happy serving the needs of the global community – multinational corporations, international banking interests, Wall Street investors, the Koch brothers, and foreign governments – in return for payments to their families and themselves.

They’ve never gotten over the fact that their happy sellout of America’s interests was immediately challenged with the election of Trump.

Now, after four – count ‘em F-O-U-R – fruitless attempts to find evidence with which to remove Trump from office, including one by the Senate Intelligence Committee, its chairman, Richard Burr, is reopening his committee’s investigation.

This not only exposes Burr as an ungrateful scumbag – when it looked like Burr might lose his re-election bid in 2016, Trump embraced him, and even named him a national security advisor to the campaign – Burr has turned on President Trump in the same fashion that he turned on the hard working people of the country.

Yesterday, Burr issued a subpoena of Trump, Jr., despite Don, Jr.’s history of open cooperation on the Russia investigation. The younger Trump has been repeatedly cleared, as has his father, President Trump.

Suspiciously, this comes immediately on the heels of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s declaration that the case against Trump is closed:

McConnell must now declare his commitment to that declaration by replacing Burr as chairman of the Senate Intel Committee.

Burr derives his authority as chairman from Leader McConnell, who, as the party leader in the Senate,  is the ex officio chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

McConnell either intervenes, reassuring President Trump that the feckless Burr has gone rogue, or he exposes himself, once again, as the duplicitous Decepticon Trump has come to know him as.

Breitbart was in contact with one of McConnell’s top donors who made clear what he expected of the Senate Majority Leader:

“What Burr’s doing isn’t just a slap in the face to the President and his family, it’s a slap in the face to Americans across the country.  It’s incumbent that Leader McConnell steps up to the plate and strips Senator Burr’s Chairmanship of the Intel Committee. If he refuses to do that, then he shoulders just as much blame for this travesty of justice as the Senator from North Carolina.”

Frankly, it’s unfathomable that Burr acted before consulting with McConnell.

It’s more likely that Burr’s action was meant to shield McConnell (who has significant financial fealty to China) while delivering a not-so-veiled warning to President Trump as talks resume tonight with Chinese Vice-Chairman Liu He.
