Feinstein Asked "Basic Questions" About Her Husband's Pre-Pandemic Stock Sales

"Basic questions" like "Did you commit a crime?" and "Can you prove you did not commit a crime?"

"Senator Feinstein was asked some basic questions by law enforcement about her husband’s stock transactions, as I think all offices in the initial story were," a spokesman for the California Democrat told Fox News on Thursday.

...

Earlier this year, reports had said Feinstein, who is the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and her husband sold between $1.5 million and $6 million in stock in California biotech company Allogene Therapeutics, between Jan. 31 and Feb. 18.

But a spokesman for Feinstein at the time denied any wrongdoing and indicated the sales involved the senator's husband, saying that “all of Senator Feinstein's assets are in a blind trust" and "she has no involvement in her husband’s financial decisions."

Weird that all of these politicians have their money in blindtrusts and never profit from their offices and yet every single one of them leaves ten times as wealthy as when they came in.

Clintonworld had a motto for this: "Doing well by doing good." That is, making a lot of money by, supposedly, having the right politics.

But.... how does money end up in your pockets from doing supposedly altruistic things and not legally permitted to accept money from outside parties?

They never explain it. They just keep on getting richer. And they keep on demanding that we thank them for their "service."

Meanwhile, Kelly Loeffler previously denied being served a warrant by the FBI, but then admitted at the end of the night that she had "voluntarily" turned over documents related to her own stock sales.

"No search warrant has been served on Sen. Loeffler. She has followed both the letter and spirit of the law and will continue to do so," the spokesperson added.

Between the day of the virus briefing, Jan. 24, and feb. 14, Loeffler and her husband sold stock worth between $1.2 million and $3.1 million, and purchased stock in a maker of software that helps people work from home -- just before millions of workers were forced to leave their offices amid coronavirus business rules, The Daily Beast reported.
