Demand an Investigation into Stock Dumping by Members of Congress!

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission:

New reporting from ProPublica reveals that Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) sold a large quantity of his stocks last month, at around the same time that he was receiving daily briefings on the severity of the coronavirus outbreak. Since that story broke, more potential bad acting by other members of Congress around the coronavirus outbreak has surfaced, meaning that a full investigation by both the Senate Ethics Committee and the Securities and Exchange Commission must be conducted swiftly.

I urge that any member of Congress who participated in similar stock selloffs be thoroughly investigated by the SEC.

    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.
