TL;DR

evidence that the trump white house was receiving highly sensitive information about the u. targets of the FBIs investigation into Russian election interference very early on with Republican Gang of Eight member Sen. The week after Comeys briefing the White House Counsels Office was in contact with SSCI Chairman Senator Richard Burr about the Russia investigations and appears to have received information about the status of the FBI investigation. In a footnote the report says that the White House Counsels Office was briefed by Senator Burr on the existence of 4 5 targets. that seems to be a shocking new development. Richard Burr used his position as Gang of Eight member to inform the Trump White House of just which members of Trumps own inner circle were the identified targets of the FBIs Russia investigationjust as that criminal and counterintelligence investigation was getting off the ground. Instead this whole thing has turned into one big nothing burger. In holding a press conference before the release of the report Barr took one last time to tell the public exactly how to receive the report. At the same time the poll indicates that Americans are mostly unhappy with the amount of information that has been released so far. The poll shows 35% of Americans think that Trump did something illegal related to Russia largely unchanged since the earlier poll
