Reporting from ProPublica reveals that Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) possibly exploited early knowledge of the coronavirus pandemic – obtained by way of his position as Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman – by selling off millions in stocks last month… just weeks before the stock market began to nosedive because of the coronavirus outbreak.
While Senator Burr was providing public assurances that the U.S. was prepared for a potential coronavirus outbreak (and sometimes even DOWNPLAYING the risks to the public), he was telling a very different narrative in private meetings with others from his state.
Since the story broke regarding Senator Burr, additional reporting indicates that other members of Congress may have engaged in similar behavior in stock selloffs of their own. Any members of Congress who exploited their positions to provide themselves with a financial windfall deserve an exhaustive investigation into the legality of their actions.
