Senator Burr apparently fed info on FBI's Russia probe to White House, Mueller says

Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr apparently supplied the White House counsel's office with information about FBI investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to a report from special counsel Robert Mueller that was made public on Thursday.

The report says that on March 9, 2017, then-FBI Director James Comey briefed Congressional leaders and intelligence committee heads on the ongoing investigation into Russian interference. That briefing included "an identification of the principal U.S. subjects of the investigation."

Burr (R-N.C.) then corresponded with the White House a week later about the Russia probes and the White House counsel's office "appears to have received information about the status of the FBI investigation," the special counsel report said.

The Senate Intelligence probe has been widely viewed on Capitol Hill as more productive than its corresponding House investigation. There's been far less infighting and Burr has taken steps to distance himself from conflicts of interest, including skipping meetings with President Donald Trump while he's been overseeing investigations. Former House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), now the committee's ranking member, was seen by Democrats as far more partisan than Burr in his probes.

1. Why isn't Burr in jail !?!? Not understanding Mueller's team logic on declaring crimes like this and

... not doing anything about it.

2. Burr will be resigning soon.

I don't believe an honest rethuglicon exists. They are all a bunch of crooks.
