Burr and Loeffler

Burr, the powerful chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and a North Carolina Republican told Senators only in a private meeting about two weeks ago the problem was coming. He had unloaded his stocks on February 13. The Senator, according to AlterNet...
"has access to the government’s most highly classified information about threats to America’s security. His committee was receiving daily coronavirus briefings around this time, according to a Reuters story."
The guy's a crook, along with Loeffler, and both should resign. No doubt they both will be protected by an even bigger crook, Senate head, Moscow Mitch McConnell. "A week after Burr’s sales, the stock market began a sharp decline and has lost about 30% since." Do these people live and work in a vacuum Because if they were aware of the consequences, we have some of the nation's dumbest people in the U.S. Congress. Well, guess we knew that.

 And Burr even wrote an opinion article for Fox News, according to the New York Times...
"suggesting that the United States was “better prepared than ever before” to confront the virus. At least three other senators sold major stock holdings around the same time, disclosure records show."
Here's what Burr said in that meeting two weeks after selling his stock...
“There’s one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything we have seen in recent history,” Mr. Burr said, according to a recording obtained by NPR, which reported on his remarks on Thursday. “It’s probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic.”
Another AlterNet article reported...
"Much like Burr, Loeffler publicly voiced optimism about the strength of the economy and the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus crisis even as she unloaded stock holdings."
You have to believe that these two minions of the Trump administration were sucking up to the White House maniac to help him support a diving stock market. It didn't help and now the two may be guilty of a felony. There were others but apparently noo directly involved.

You're on Progressive Street,,,Where Liberals Walk...

Is racism still a dirty word, or...just accepted today?

Racism is worse than that old weather saying. People have been talking about it for years, but no one has seriously done anything about it...
