How to use burr in a sentence?

  1. Mitch McConnell:

    I'm sure that Senator Warner and Burr will take a look at it, they'll get to the bottom of what happened.

  2. Bob Trout:

    When I heard about the search warrant for Senator Burr's cell phone, my first thought was' speech or debate clause,' in the case of the FBI's Saturday night raid on Congressman Jefferson's office in the Rayburn House Office Building, Rayburn House had the look and feel of an invasion of Congressional sacred space. And on a bipartisan basis, Congress raised holy hell. Showing up at a Senator's personal residence and politely taking possession of a cell phone ? Not the same vibe.

  3. Mark Warner:

    Chairman Richard Burr and I have been pretty clear that we don't think that information should even be shared with us, we've turned down the opportunity to have that kind of briefing, because, because of the threat of leaking. Because there are other bodies on the Hill that get information, and very quickly afterwards that information appears in the press. We wanted to make sure that weren't going to be subject to any, even those kind of allegations.

  4. Mike Lee:

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., supports the legislation and had hoped to pass it last Thursday, but Mitch McConnell was forced to delay consideration past the expiration date after Mike Lee, R-Utah, and two other senators Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Ron Wyden said they would object. The House legislation, negotiated by White House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Republican leader Kevin McCarthy, would renew several provisions the FBI sees as vital to fighting terrorism but also aim to ensure stricter oversight of how the bureau conducts surveillance. PAUL : MY FISA AMENDMENT WILL KEEP Mike Lee had proposed a deal on the Senate floor Thursday extension of the current authorities if the Senate would consider several amendments to the White House bill that would further limit them. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, speaking on the floor for Mitch McConnell, objected to that deal, saying the Senate should instead pass the House bill. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has pushed for FISA reforms. ( AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite) Were not a rubberstamp for the House of Representatives, were certainly not a rubber stamp for the Deep State.

  5. Alice Fisher:

    The law is clear that any American -- including a Senator -- may participate in the stock market based on public information, as Richard Burr did. When this issue arose, Richard Burr immediately asked the Senate Ethics Committee to conduct a complete review, and Richard Burr will cooperate with that review as well as any other appropriate inquiry.
