Sen. Burr: Can’t confirm that Russia wanted Trump to be elected President

Although the storyline is that the Russia wanted Trump to get elected that is seemingly becoming less and less of the case.


While Burr sidestepped questions about whether the Russians were trying to help Trump, one of the conclusions the intelligence community found, he warned that the efforts to interfere are still ongoing and must be addressed ahead of the next round of US elections later this year and in 2018.
“We have not come to any determination on collusion or Russia’s preferences,” the North Carolina Republican said. “It seems that the overall theme of the Russian involvement in the US elections was to create chaos at every level. And I would tell you the fact that we’re sitting here nine months later investigating it, they have been pretty darn successful.”

So it went from Trump colluded, to they wanted to help Trump, to well we have no idea in they wanted to back any candidate.

As I have said from the beginning there is no doubt that Russia wanted to influence our election. Every country is always trying to influence the elections of other countries worldwide. What I knew was that they had no candidate they preferred and they didn’t change any vote tallies. Both of these points are becoming true as this witch hunt aimed at undermining our Democracy continues.
