Deep State Ringer and Might-As-Well-Be-A-Democrat Senator Richard Burr Dumped $1.6 Million in Stock In Companies Right After Assuring Public That Coronavirus Could be Contained

Pump and dump.

This guy is a bad actor and has been the Deep State's agent-in-place in the Senate for a while. He's also a corporate stooge, obviously.

I want him out of office and it's not even important to me that we get another Republican in. He has to be driven out of office, period. At least if a Democrat takes the seat we can actually oppose that person, rather than having to cover up for a traitor like Burr.

Soon after he offered public assurances that the government was ready to battle the coronavirus, the powerful chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Richard Burr, sold off a significant percentage of his stocks, unloading between $582,029 and $1.56 million of his holdings on Feb. 13 in 29 separate transactions.

As the head of the intelligence committee, Burr, a North Carolina Republican, 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.

A week after Burr’s sales, the stock market began a sharp decline and has lost about 30% since.
