Tuesday the Washington Examiner reports that Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr doesn’t believe a Comey memo exists that was purported to be read over the phone to a New York Times reporter.

Burr says he met with James Comey the day before President Trump fired him, and that Comey may have even said on another occasion that such documentation did not exist.

“I actually believe the director might have told us that there’d been a request like that and it was never mentioned by him,” the North Carolina Republican told reporters. “So somebody’s going to have to do more than have anonymous sources on this one for me to believe that there’s something there.”

Burr’s committee is probing potential Trump ties to Russia and he’s no flack of the President’s.  Neither is Lindsey Graham.

“If this happened, the FBI director should have done something about it or quit,” Graham said. “If the president asked the FBI director to do something inappropriate, the FBI director should have said no and quit.”

Graham said if such a conversation took place, the onus would be on Comey to tell Trump no and quit.  Comey did neither. Burr seems to call bullshit on the entire story.

“I could write something and I could read it over the phone and tell them that it came from [Comey],” he told reporters. “I think the burden is on the New York Times, if they’re reporting it and they’ve got somebody that’s got the document, they need to get the document and get it released.”

Both Congressional and Senate leaders have suggested they want to see the memos. Unlike the Washington Post stories about intel leaks Trump may have made to Russia, at least some GOP notables appear to actually be defending Trump from a new wave of fake news.
