Demand Senators Resign for Profiting from COVID-19 Insider Trading

UPDATE (04/02/20): Vanity Fair is now reporting that a few weeks after their massive stock sell-off, Sen. Loeffler and her husband invested over $200,000 in Dupont de Nemours. The company is a major manufacturer of personal protective equipment. Meanwhile, the FBI and DOJ have contacted Sen. Burr about his suspicious stock sales.

Despite publicly downplaying the coronavirus crisis, at least four Republican senators and one Democratic senator (who did not make misleading statements) made massive stock sales weeks before the market crashed over pandemic fears.

On Wednesday, March 18th, the same Republican senators who made oddly prescient stock sales opposed an amendment to expand paid sick leave to millions of Americans.

Senators Inhofe, Loeffler, Johnson, Burr, and any other political representatives who have profited from insider knowledge of the coronavirus crisis while misleading the public must resign immediately.

Senator Feinstein needs to make thorough public statements that fully explain her role, if any, in her blind trust’s lucrative stock sell off, timed so close to classified briefings.
