• As if Things Aren’t Bad Enough: Possible Congressional Coronavirus Corruption?

    Surge Summary: Reports that a handful of U.S. Senators used insider information concerning the coronavirus outbreak to dump stock holdings before the financial meltdown that followed. If true, there is no excuse for this, it is possibly illegal. This needs to be pursued.

    There was very disturbing news this morning about four U.S. senators – three Republicans and one Democrat.  I’m not going to name them yet because we only have partial information, and I want a few questions answered so I don’t inappropriately smear several senators.

    Here’s the gist of it:  These senators reportedly got a briefing on the growing signs that the coronavirus was going to be a huge problem before the American people were fully informed.  There’s nothing wrong with that.  They are policy makers and need to have all the information possible.

    But here’s the rub: These senators then reportedly unloaded millions of dollars of stock before the financial meltdown.

    If the allegations as reported are true, it is morally despicable and possibly illegal.  There are questions about whether these senators violated the STOCK Act, legislation passed in 2012 intended to prevent insider trading by members of Congress and other government officials.

    I’ll update you as we learn more.
