The corruption of the Republican Party is obvious and disgusting 😠😠
In the middle of a PANDEMIC 😠😠😠
To clarify, one of Inhofe's stock trades, worth up to $100,000, was made about 3 weeks after the briefing. The remaining trades (worth up to $400,000) were made on the Monday after the Friday briefing.
The 2012 STOCK act made #InsiderTrading by Members of Congress ILLEGAL.

“The 15 stocks that Loeffler reported selling have lost more than a third of their value, on average, since she reported offloading them. She initially said many of the stock was owned by her husband. Last week she amended the filing to note that most of them were jointly owned.”

Senators Burr and Loeffler should be investigated by authorities and the Senate Ethics Committee.
If the evidence suggests they engaged in insider trading, they should be charged and stand trial.

In 2012, @BarackObama signed the STOCK Act into law that bans #InsiderTrading by Members of Congress, prohibiting stock trades based on nonpublic info gotten on Capitol Hill.@SenatorBurr got classified briefings about #COVID19, then dumped his stock.💥https://t.co/qXotK5odSl https://t.co/ejxfAo9NcY

Trump says coronavirus “surprised the whole world” and it “could have been stopped in place” if we knew about it ahead of time.
Well, we knew about it at the same time as South Korea.
And they’ve largely contained it. We haven’t — and you’re looking at the reason why. pic.twitter.com/WiHK6mipLS

He told wealthy friends. Then cashed out a cool $1.4m in stock. Then voted AGAINST the covid-19 relief bill. He needs to go https://t.co/kYolBg3ycv

Let’s try this again, @realdonaldtrump:
Hospitals are already running out of ventilators and beds. Nurses are using bandanas as masks.
If you’ve already ordered more with the Defense Production Act, tell us now.
If you haven’t, you’re failing to lead and failing Americans.

🚨Mitch McConnell wants to cut Democrats OUT of direct negotiations for the TRILLION DOLlAR bailout he’s planning for corporate America. To #saveworkers we need House and Senate Democrats at that table – or we’re all on the menu. https://t.co/5oSb6sjwMp

1. This is nowhere near enough money to keep people afloat
2. They seem to be operating under the naive assumption that this will be over in weeks.
3. The next bill is going to be much, much harder to pass, so they need to treat this bill like it could be the last one. https://t.co/SRZoTfUphH

This is what happens when you elect someone on the basis of racism instead of on the basis of competence.
This is what happens when you embrace conspiracy theories and ditch science.
This is what anti-intellectualism and populism gets you. A society on the brink of chaos.

I think we see the real reason Trump wanted the numbers low. It wasn’t just about the election, he was buying time for everyone to cash out.
