Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released a statement earlier that Senator Richard Burr is stepping down as Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman during the investigation into potential insider stock trading.

Last night, reports indicated that the FBI served a warrant and Burr’s cell phone was seized, as well as having his house searched.
Given that news, it’s not surprising that he chose to do this, although Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer had said earlier today that it was “premature” for him to call for Burr to step down as chairman. Clearly, they wanted to get ahead of such a call.
