BREAKING: Senator Richard Burr has been accused of having inside knowledge of the global pandemic and withholding the info for many days following a major stock trade.
If in fact true, Burr’s actions look to fall directly under the Stock Act, which was designed specifically to stop activity of this nature.
AProPublica noted Thursday said Burr made 33 separate transactions, selling a significant percentage of his stocks a week before the market crashed.
“He had inside information about what could happen to our country, which is now happening, but he didn’t warn the public,” Carlson said during his show Thursday night. “He didn’t give a primetime address. He didn’t go on television to sound the alarm.”
Carlson went on to say,“Maybe there is an honest explanation for what he did. If there is, he should share it with the rest of us immediately. Otherwise, he must resign from the senate and face prosecution for insider trading.”
“There is no greater moral crime than betraying your country in a time of crisis,” Carlson added. “And that appears to be what happened.”
Senator Richard Burr must be arrested.
F-ck this guy.
