Two more senators made hefty stock sales before the coronavirus pandemic tanked global markets, records revealed as two other lawmakers who dumped millions in shares faced mounting calls to resign.

Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Jim Inhofe sold as much as $6.4 million worth of stock in the weeks before panic about the coronavirus sparked a worldwide selloff, according to disclosure filings first reported by the New York Times.

The additional revelations came amid widespread outrage toward GOP Sens. Richard Burr and Kelly Loeffler, who reportedly sold shares after getting briefings on the coronavirus threat.

Disgusting. They used the briefing on Coronavirus to sell their stocks before the crash. Feinstein plus 3 Republicans. Corruption on both sides of the aisle.

Wow! The fifteenth post of the same tripe! This is a typical narrative being pushed so that the DUmocrats retain Congress. They’re always pushing the “inequality” class-warfare type of stories. Until Hitlery’s “cattle futures” are investigated, it’s a non-issue.

Expected, but where do they get so much money to invest to begin with? That is the real issue!

These GD stupid assholes.

If they had any sense at all they would have figured it out and sold on the average. NOPE! Lets sell it now and get caught.

And they are passing laws!

Take all these lawyers/politicians out and shoot the SOBs.

It’s nothing but NONSENSE.

Just how long do congressional members have to hold on to stock when things are going bad.

2 days, 2 wks, a month?

That’d be a tough position to be in to have insider information and NOT act. Honestly!

Pecker puss Pelosi, Biden, and others got rich on insider trading as well. Congress needs to fix this by making congress put their assets in trusts as they serve. This will reduce the number of career politicians as well.

"Briefings"

A function of Intel psy-ops weasels, who's motives are derived from sustaining the ruling political classes.

Those giving and receiving briefings have proven without a doubt to have been misusing their positions and offices in an illegal and unethical way for the past 20 years. That goes for all three parties. The republicans, democrats, and interagency bureaucrats.

This morning, Good Morning America, only reported on the two REPUBLICAN Senators who did this. No mention at all of these Democrats......not that I’m surprised.

As far as Senators go....I like Inhofe.

But the dude has been in politics forever. How he has a stock portfolio in the millions is just....wow. Obviously it doesn’t matter what their salary is. That’s not where the money lies.

Apparently, Jim Inhofe was in Mutual Funds and his financial makes the decisions to sell or buy.

He probably had market index funds.

Which he would have had zero control over, any more than my wife and I have over our market index funds.

His Money Manager could be a freeper, who figured out that the Chicom’s mishandling of their virus would hammer the market and sold without the Senator’s knowledge.

Also, the managers of the index funds have automated sell and buy programs.

DiFi and her husband have a long history of abusing her classified info. Maybe her ChiCom chauffeur gave her a head’s up!

Outrageous. Even more outrageous when you consider there are no consequences for this stuff from the political class.

I sincerely, genuinely hope both of them get the corona virus. I was taught that you shouldn’t wish harm on others, but it would be the only justice we’ll ever see.
