Democratic Senator Mark Warner is partnering with Republican Marco Rubio to shoot down the scandal involving Warner’s contact with a Russian oligarch and his involvement in the effort to obtain the Christopher Steele dossier.
Grateful to @MarcoRubio, @SenatorBurr and other Republican colleagues who are focused on getting to the truth, not cable news attacks trying to make a scandal out of our bipartisan investigation. https://t.co/Wh3f1igzP5

Warner, like many other Democrats, was involved in the team effort to put together an opposition research folder on President Trump.
Warner has gained notice on Capitol Hill for other ventures, as well.
Democratic Senator Mark Warner said the potential of bitcoin is transformational in a February 6 Senate Banking Committee hearing.
“I was lucky enough to get into the cell phone business back in the Eighties and everybody said it was going to be a small business, and they were wrong, and I got rich,” Senator Mark Warner of Virginia declared in the hearing.
“I think the potential, writ large, of crypto-assets could be as transformational as wireless was years ago,” Warner said.
“I think we’re going to need a much more coordinated effort,” Warner said, referring to the federal government enforcement bureaucracy, of which he is a member.
TechCrunch noticed Warner’s starring role, writing: “When Senator Mark Warner, who expressed more familiarity with the area than most of his peers, criticized the patchwork nature of regulation that allowed Bitcoin futures while still blocking ETFs, calling for a more “coordinated effort” among regulatory bodies, both witnesses were quick to agree.”
