Somebody find that tweet for me that I saw just a few days ago that I can't find now where Burr was QUOTED saying there was no collusion or obstruction.

And Burr is *already on the record* admitting there's been no evidence he's seen at this point of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

motherjones.com/politics/2019/…
Warner tried to implicate Burr in doing something dirty or illegal in talking to the Trump White House back in 2017 about an intel briefing the Gang of Eight got about the FBI's Russia probe.
Apparently the Trump White House was supposed to be kept COMPLETELY IN THE DARK about that Russia probe briefing the Gang of Eight got and when Burr went and told the White House about this briefing, Mark Warner & the Democrats SCREAMED he'd done something foul.
Burr said eventually HIS side of the story would be told.

If so, it *could be* Burr's not subpoenaing Don Jr. to ask him about the same stuff all over again.

It's about defending telling the White House about that Gang of 8 briefing.

It's clean up now that it's over.
If Martosko's source is correct, 'a few weeks ago' is anywhere from the release of Barr's summary letter to the public release of the Mueller report itself.

Mueller *mentions* Burr going to the White House to talk to them about this Gang of 8 intel briefing on the Russia probe.

*Warner* tries to make it sound as if something dirty or corrupt happened here and he's just *shocked* that his dear colleague would do this, etc. etc.
It would strain my credulity that Burr is calling Don Jr. in again under subpoena to....go right back over all the Trump Tower meeting stuff yet again trying to find something that can be used to claim collusion.

Seek alternative ideas, people.
Remember how many times the past 2 years the instantly formed popular narrative turned out to be 100% wrong.

ADDENDUM: I see I wasn't clear.

Warner accused Burr of being a *dirty rat* just a few days ago for running to the White House to spill the beans about that Gang of 8 inte briefing on the Russia probe.

Burr's WH visit was not revealed *until the Mueller Report was released*.
The 'soon' in Bertrand's tweet is after Warner made his accusation known to Burr. That was when the Mueller Report was released publicly just 2 weeks ago.

Burr said soon he would make his case to the Senate Intel Committee that he *did nothing wrong* going to the White House.
The Mueller SC is over and done.

The one real issue facing Burr now that he himself has publicly said 'no collusion' is demonstrating he didn't compromise anything by making that White House visit back in 2017.

He's reopening the Mueller investigation?

I don't think so

/end
If the narrative the Democrats want to sell is that Burr *rushed to the White House* in 2017 to TIP OFF TRUMP & DON JR. there was an ongoing FBI investigation into their supposed Russian collusion during the election, Burr needs Don Jr. to say under oath "That did NOT happen!"
