Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) told the Associated Press that he doesn’t think the committee should rush to wrap up its Russia investigation, saying “the worst thing we can do is to prematurely try to end” the probe.
“He says the panel still has a handful of people to interview behind closed doors and some who they may want to interview again, though he isn’t making any commitments on bringing witnesses forward publicly.”
Said Burr: “Nothing in this town stays classified or secret forever. And at some point somebody’s going to go back and do a review. And I’d love not to be the one that chaired the committee when somebody says, ‘well, boy, you missed this.’ So we’ve tried to be pretty thorough in how we’ve done it.”
He added: “If the intent is to have a show trial, I’m not a participant.”
