The public demands the resignation of one of 4 Senators who got rid of stocks before the market collapsed

129

Previously convicted of selling more than $ 1.7 million worth of stocks, Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.) must step down, as the public demands. As one of the authors of the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act, he knew about the catastrophic effects of a pandemic on the US market and economy, reports ProPublica.

Amid accusations, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also called on Burr to resign.

Richard Burr had access to classified non-public information, which the senator later decided to use to get rid of stocks that would have devalued in a few days.

Also, according to an investigation by ProPublica, Burr informed his influential friends of an impending stock price drop and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) also saved their money.

Fun fact about Senator Richard Burr, “(he) was one of just three senators who in 2012 opposed the bill that explicitly barred lawmakers and their staff from using nonpublic information for trades and required regular disclosure of those trades,” reports ProPublica.

Twitter has already hit Senator Burr. All users, without exception, demand his resignation.
