The chairman of the Senate intelligence committee says the guilty plea from President Donald Trump's former lawyer sends a message that "if you lie to us, we're going to go after you."

Michael Cohen confessed that he lied to Congress about a Moscow real estate deal he pursued on Trump's behalf during the heat of the 2016 Republican campaign.

North Carolina Republican Sen. Richard Burr wouldn't say Friday how many referrals his intelligence panel has made to special counsel Robert Mueller. But Burr says they're not afraid to refer anything they believe is criminal and says lying to Congress is "right at the top of it."

Burr was speaking at a national security forum at the University of Texas at Austin. He was joined by Republican Sen. John Cornyn and Democratic Sen. Mark Warner, who are also on the Senate intelligence panel.
