Senate records show that NC Senator Richard Burr and his wife sold between roughly $600,000 and $1.7 million in more than 30 separate transactions in late January and mid-February, just before the market began to fall and as government health officials began to issue stark warnings about the effects of the virus.

Burr was not alone. 

According to stock sales disclosures by Senators after a closed door briefing on January 24 about the Coronavirus threat, the following senators sold stocks: Senator Richard Burr Senator Kelly Loeffler Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Ron Johnson 

Senator Jim Inhofe

 Loeffler is the wealthiest senator, worth over $500 million and her husband is head of NY Stock Exchange. 

People are calling for them to resign and to be arrested and prosecuted.

Guess Senator Johnson (R-WI) understands numbers when it comes to his wealth so he can't be entirely stupid, just doesn't care about people.

Senator Johnson (R-WI) voted against the aid package because he said it will only affect at the most 3.4% of our population. It should be noted to the mentally deficient Johnson that 3.4% of our population involves 9 to 10 Million people. That's 9,000,000 10,000,000! Glad he thinks that's a small amount because he's accustomed to giving much larger sums of dollars to his donors.

They should all be hunted down like rabid animals. There is ample precedent for their prosecution. Rep. Collins from NY?

The commonalities in term of moral leadership between the left and right polulists couldn't be more evident than Tucker Carlson's call for Burr to be prosecuted and Krystal Ball's praise for his dong so.

3/20 - "Krystal and Saagar discuss Saagar's interview on Fox News as Carlson calls on Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., to resign if Burr doesn't explain why he sold millions in stock before the market fell amid the coronavirus pandemic." (Go to Rising)
