Senator Burr is Patently And Obviously Guilty of Insider Trading

Why hasn’t he been arrested?

Soon after he offered public assurances that the government was ready to battle the coronavirus, the powerful chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Richard Burr, sold off a significant percentage of his stocks, unloading between $582,029 and $1.56 million of his holdings on Feb. 13 in 29 separate transactions.

As the head of the intelligence committee, Burr, a North Carolina Republican, has access to the government’s most highly classified information about threats to America’s security. His committee was receiving daily coronavirus briefings around this time, according to a Reuters story.

A week after Burr’s sales, the stock market began a sharp decline and has lost about 30% since.

On Thursday, Burr came under fire after NPR obtained a secret recording from Feb. 27, in which the lawmaker gave a VIP group at an exclusive social club a much more dire preview of the economic impact of the coronavirus than what he had told the public.

The FBI needs to do its job and arrest him, and the FTC needs to prosecute him to the full extent of the law.

    my comment was in mild and reasonable reaction to your assessment that trumpists don’t go to jail… but their lives will never be the same as if they had gone to jail. Names like Flynn (whom the interviewing FBI agents disagree whether they committed a crime or not), Carter Page, the other guy with Greek last name, and others, who are trumpists and now we know that MERELY because they are trumpists, they were spied on, prosecuted unfairly, and had their lives ruined by investigations based on a lying dossiê and now the proven document altering Comey’s FBI agents held-over and perhaps working for the previous administration. Yup, trumpists do get in trouble with the law. These Senators, in ANY PARTY, should not be legally allowed to use their positions to gain advantage over the regular folk. At least an ethics investigation by the Senate has to ensue if not a felony charge of inside trading!
