Last quote by Richard Burr

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. We would like him to tell his story because he publicly said: 'I've got a story to tell.' We're allowing him that opportunity to tell it.feedback

Richard Burr quotes

Sure there were FBI employees that disagreed with how he handled the Clinton email announcements. The lion's share of FBI employees respect the former director and it shows the professionalism that he brought to the role that he was in.feedback

I think this made our task a little more difficult but it didn't make it impossible so we'll continue. I'm very confident we can get to the bottom of it, but we've got to be given the time and access to interview the right people.feedback

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

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

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

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

I think it's safe to say by everybody's judgment that the Russians are actively involved in the French elections.feedback

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

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

The committee will go wherever the intelligence leads us.feedback

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

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

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

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

I trust Jeff Sessions to make that decision.feedback

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

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
