I admit I don't know much about insider trading laws, but if Sen. Feinstein sold said shares with the expectation that their price would drop based on what she found out, wouldn't that still be insider trading? All it would say is that Sens. Burr and Loefler are better at stock trading than Sen. Feinstein.

The point is, she says her stocks are in a blind trust, and the fact that the stock sales the MSM is point to as "proof" are the opposite of the kinds of moves you'd expect if she was using her insider knowledge to play the stock market kind of hints that's the case.  Actually, Gohmert and Johnson's stock moves are similar; the only ones that SCREAM insider trading are Burr and Loefler, because the stock moves they made line up perfectly with the expected fallout of the Coronavirus hitting the market.  And then there's Burr being caught telling rich Republican donors that the fallout from COVID-19 was going to be as bad as the Spanish Flu, while telling the public it was a hoax...

Oh, and as pointed out, Loefler's husband is the head of the NYSE.  He also made a bunch of questionable transactions around that time... Probably on a tip-off from his wife.

Which could still be on a tip (even if a bad tip) from Sen. Feinstein.

Whatever else happens, she should be included in the investigation, at least, because something looks shady even if nothing actually is in her case.

Trump is scared. Now he's saying that he wants to open up all businesses throughout the country and get people working again because people are really seeing how small his dick is without a booming economy. I hope this really shows his true colors to the voters that he cares only about himself instead of the health of the population.

Trump said that a Malaria medicine is a cure for Covid-19. Elderly couple saw that some aquarium cleaning powder that they had in the house had a similar name and now one of them is dead from poisoning.

And yes, though they took the wrong chemicals, they specifically did it because they were trying to follow instructions from the president of USA.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I feel so bad for Fauci. I feel like he really wants to do the right thing and do this job right, but in order to keep his job he has to pretend he agrees with Trump who is just fucking everything up.

The stock that was sold was for something that wasn't even connected to the Coronavirus.

Sure, then the investigation will exonerate her and she won't have the questions hanging over her head, except from the people who will never let go of it no matter what.

What should happen (at a minimum) is that Congress should pass AOC's bill to ban stock trading entirely by members of Congress. (Better yet, ban stock ownership, but that's got absolutely no chance.)

I'm tempted to say that they should agree, as long as the statement can contain a reference to the 1918-1920 Kansan flu pandemic.

(For those unaware: a) the 1918-1920 pandemic probably started in Kansas but was covered up due to wartime censorship laws that forbid the reporting of news that would lower morale, and was associated with Spain because that country was neutral and did not censor the news, especially as regarded the illness of Alfonso XIII; b) Pompeo used to represent Kansas's 4th Congressional District.)

And yes, though they took the wrong chemicals, they specifically did it because they were trying to follow instructions from the president of USA.

Here's the fun part: even though we don't yet know if chloroquine even works (clinical trials are ongoing), there are already shortages because of Trump's tweet. Chloroquine is also an immunosuppresant used to treat lupus. Sucks to be you if you were already using that drug, I guess.

Plus, of course, while malaria is not a serious problem in the US, it still kills hundreds of thousands of people every year in the developing world.
