NCDP Statement on Senator Burr Leaking Information to the White House

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after the Muller Report outlined how Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr apparently supplied the White House with information about the Russia probe:

“Senator Burr betrayed the trust of every North Carolinian when he chose allegiance to President Trump over the good of our state and our country. While disappointing, this isn’t shocking: Senator Burr previously put President Trump before his constituents when he served as Trump’s henchman to knock-down damaging news reports. Once again, a North Carolina Republican reveals that staying loyal to a dangerous president matters more to them than maintaining the trust of their constituents. The entire North Carolina Republican Party, from Senators Burr and Tillis to our Republican House delegation, would rather do wrong by our state and our people than stray from President Trump’s side.”
