Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Burr on Suspected Terror Attack in Florida

WASHINGTON – Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) today made the following statement on the suspected terror attack that killed fifty at a nightclub in Orlando, FL:

“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this morning's horrific attack in Orlando and their loved ones.  Law enforcement authorities are investigating the attack as a terrorist incident, and we should allow the investigation to unfold.  I am confident the Federal Bureau of Investigation and its law enforcement partners will be able to present a full picture of the suspect, his motives or inspiration, and his background.”
