One the stories that has recently been making its rounds is the curious case of Senator Richard Burr’s sudden sell off of 1.56 million dollars worth of stock before the stock market took a nose dive. That in of itself stinks like three day old rotten fish and is clear example of the corruption in DC where insider trading is happening and now is raising serious questions. Richard Burr heads up the select intelligence committee which is no secret that it is the most corrupt committee in all of DC, especially considering Mark Warner sits on the same committee who was caught up in a prank call by two Ukrainian comedians posing as Russian Operatives who played him for the fool that he is, is also a ranking member of this committee. The two put together have played major roles in foiling the DOJ and prosecutions of certain individuals such as James Wolf who basically got a slap on the wrist for leaking classified information.
The point is, this latest bit of news is going to put Burr in the hot seat and he will have to explain how he was able to unload such a large amount of stock in a short period of time and right before the Stock market posted heavy losses while he goes unscathed, doesn’t sound like the he was being clairvoyant of future events, nor a trading savant that this is by any means just a coincidence, but that he had a heads up with insider information. The latter is something that politicians in DC is aware of seeing it was them that had legislation on the books to prevent such things from happening (congress and Senate members being able to own and trade stocks while serving in office)
This needs to be seriously looked at and investigated.
Good on Tucker to raise awareness on this issue to apply the heat on Burr.
