These agents were sent to Burr’s home to serve a search warrant and ended up seizing a cell phone from the Republican lawmaker. This is part of the ongoing DOJ probe into possible insider trading, but Burr is not the only one who needs to be looking over his shoulder right now, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.
