Last quote by Richard Burr

I think it's more important that we get the person who's most capable of talking about the technical aspects of what they need to do to identify foreign money that may come in and what procedures, if any, need to be put in law that make sure elections are not intruded upon by foreign entities.feedback

After more than two years of litigation, the federal courts have ruled that the Senate intelligence committee's 2014 full report on the CIA's detention and interrogation program is a congressional document.

May 23 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

We're taking options that we feel are appropriate right now. That's not our preference today. We would like to hear from General Flynn. We would like to see his documents.

I think this was a good decision.feedback

May 16 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

As close as (Sen.) Mark Warner and I have worked with the director over the past many months now, I actually believed the director might have told us if there had been a request like that (from Trump). And it was never mentioned by him. I'm getting really, really tired of anonymous sources.feedback

May 16 2017

My committee's got the jurisdictional responsibility to investigate this. We are going to do that.feedback

May 10 2017

I am troubled by the timing and reasoning of Director Comey's termination. Director Comey has been more forthcoming with information than any FBI Director I can recall in my tenure on the congressional intelligence committees. His dismissal, I believe, is a loss for the Bureau and the nation.feedback

May 09 2017 - US voter fraud

The decision ... raises profound questions about whether the White House is brazenly interfering in a criminal matter ... The same president who has called the investigation into the Russian hacking of our democracy and the potential complicity of his campaign a 'fake,' cannot pretend to have made such a decision uninfluenced by his concerns over Comey's continued involvement in the investigation.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Russia

The unfortunate thing is we do a majority of our work behind closed doors, versus the public process that seems to go on the other side of the Hill. But we're satisfied with our progress.feedback

If the reports are right, then she will be of interest to us.feedback

Apr 02 2017 - French politics

Russia is interfering in the French election just as it did in the U.S. presidential campaign last year. What we might assess was a very covert effort in 2016 in the United States is a very overt effort, as well as covert, in Germany and France. So we feel part of our responsibility is to educate the rest of the world about what's going on, because it's now into character assassination of candidates.feedback

Mar 31 2017

The vice chairman and I realize that if we politicize this process, our efforts will likely fail. The public deserves to hear the truth about possible Russian involvement in our elections, how they came to be involved, how we may have failed to prevent that involvement, what actions were taken in response, if any, and what we plan to do to ensure the integrity of future free elections at the heart of our democracy.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Russia

We're within 30 days of what is a primary election in France. It could be that the Russians have done enough to make sure that a candidate that went to Russia recently, a socialist, made the runoff. We could end up with a pro-Russian government in France.feedback

Mar 30 2017

Mar 30 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

Mar 29 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

Mark and I work hand in hand on this. ... We're partners to see that this is completed and that we have a product at the end of the day that we can, in bipartisanship, support. It's safe to say that we have had conversations with a lot of people, and you would think less of us if General Flynn wasn't in that list. Absolutely. I'll do something I've never done. I'll admit I voted for him (Trump). ... But I've got a job in the U.S. Senate and ... it overrides any personal beliefs that I have or loyalties that I might have.feedback

Mar 29 2017

It's not something that can be done quickly. Let me remind you, the last public investigation that we did was the Senate investigation into Benghazi … it took one year, and in comparison to the public hearings that happened in the House, our report and findings were out much quicker than what they were. We're not asking the House to play any role in our investigation. We don't plan to play any role in their investigation.feedback

Mar 29 2017

It would be crazy to try to draw conclusions from where we are in the investigation.feedback

Mar 29 2017

I've got a job in the United States Senate and I take that job extremely seriously and it overrides any personal beliefs that I have or loyalties I may have. Mark and I may look at politics differently, we don't look at the responsibilities we have on the committee differently.feedback

Mar 29 2017

Mar 02 2017

I trust Jeff Sessions to make that decision.feedback

Feb 28 2017

I'm in a comfortable place. I didn't do anything to jeopardize my investigation.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

Washington, D.C. can be a rough town for honorable people, and Flynn – who has always been a soldier, not a politician – deserves America's gratitude and respect for dedicating so much of his life to strengthening our national security. I thank him for his many years of distinguished service.feedback

Jan 13 2017

We believe that it is critical to have a full understanding of the scope of Russian intelligence activities impacting the United States.feedback

Nov 01 2016 - Supreme Court

If Hillary Clinton becomes president, I am going to do everything I can do to make sure four years from now, we still got an opening on the Supreme Court.feedback

Capt. Khan is an American hero in every sense of the term, and the Khans deserve our sincerest gratitude.feedback

Jul 01 2016 - Bangladesh

This is the second significant terror attack in one week, in vastly different parts of the world. Extremist groups are no longer challenged by the distance to their targets and we are likely no longer protected by the vast oceans beyond our borders. The terrorist threat is truly global.feedback

Jun 23 2016

The threats facing our nation continue to grow and this year's legislation provides the Intelligence Community the resourcing and authorities it needs to keep America safe. The bill also strengthens the Committee's ability to conduct vigorous oversight over the intelligence activities of our government to ensure they are conducted effectively, efficiently, and within the rule of law.feedback
