It has been reported that the FBI is investigating whether Vladimir Putin and the Russian government used the National Rifle Association (NRA) to help Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. The NRA spent a tremendous amount of money on 2016 Senate races, with the most going to Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina.
Senator Burr chairs the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and is in charge of the Senate investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
We are calling on Senator Burr to immediately return all campaign contributions that he received during his 2016 election campaign. If Russia was funneling money through the NRA to be used for election campaigns, there is a chance that some of this dark money made its way into Senator Burr’s re-election campaign coffers.
In order to maintain his independence and integrity in this investigation, Senator Burr must return this money immediately. If he fails to do so, this entire investigation is tainted.
