    Senate Intel chair unloaded stocks in mid-February before coronavirus rocked markets

    Senate Intel chair unloaded stocks in mid-February before coronavirus rocked markets

    As the coronavirus outbreak began to spread across the U.S. in mid-February, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) unloaded his holdings in dozens of stocks that would lose much of their market value over the coming weeks.

    Burr and his wife Brooke sold between $581,000 and $1.5 million in publicly traded stocks on Feb. 13 and didn’t buy any new positions, according to a recent financial disclosure filed with the Senate.

    If Burr used insider knowledge to unload stocks, imprison him.

    What about the "few constituents" that he secretly warned?

    On Feb. 27, when the United States had 15 confirmed cases of COVID-19, President Trump was tamping down fears and suggesting the virus could be seasonal.

    "It's going to disappear. One day, It's like a miracle. It will disappear," the president said then, before adding, "it could get worse before it gets better. It could maybe go away. We'll see what happens."

    On that same day, Burr attended a luncheon held at a social club called the Capitol Hill Club. And he delivered a much more alarming message.

    "There's one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history," he said, according to a secret recording of the remarks obtained by NPR. "It is probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic."

    Good of him to prepare by feathering his nest instead of worrying about parochial concerns like national readiness. Now our front line medical staff are tackling this without the protective gear they need. Thanks, Dick!

    I didn't sell because I figured the dip would be quick (and it still might be) but I did buy some USO yesterday and picked up 14% in the past 24 hours. We'll see how that keeps up.

    It gets better with Burr. He’s retiring in 2022 before the **** hits the fan. He was an integral part of the trump coverups with mcconnell, beginning in September 2016 until this day.

    Burr has always been a POS, or at least since Trump got elected.
    I'm all for imprisoning him.

    This needs to be used against tillis in his senate re-election and the rest of the down-ballot races in NC, a state where the gop is in serious disarray.

    We’ll see how wise it was for the gop to hold its rnc convention in Charlotte, NC beginning 8/24, a full 38 days after the DNC Convention ends.

    Since trump got elected? If that’s your measure, your two senators alexander and blackburn should also be in jail.
