Double Standard – After Burr’s Raid FBI Politely Asks Dianne Feinstein About Coronavirus Stock Sales

Back in March, news broke out that four Republican senators are being accused of dumping their stocks after being briefed on the coronavirus in private meetings.

Richard Burr of North Carolina, Kelly Loeffler of Georgia, James Inhofe of Oklahoma, and Ron Johnson from Wisconsin.

The mainstream media was quick to attack the GOP members but fail to mention the Democrat who was also connected to suspicious stock trades.

Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein of California is also accused of insider trading.

Feinstein, who serves as ranking member of 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, Fox News reported.

Senator Richard Burr is stepping aside temporarily as chairman of the Intelligence Committee amid a Justice Department investigation of his stock trades, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Thursday.

A senior Justice Department official told NPR that the FBI executed a search warrant Wednesday and seized Burr’s cellphone. The Los Angeles Times first reported the news of the search.
The FBI politely asked Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein for documents about her husband’s stock trades prior to the Coronavirus crash.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office said Thursday that she was contacted by the FBI about stock sales she made early in the coronavirus pandemic.


Feinstein, Burr and two other senators face scrutiny for large stock sales early in the pandemic, when senators received non-public warnings about potential economic havoc.

Feinstein spokesman Tom Mentzer said he believes that two other Senate offices — those of Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and James Inhofe (R-Okla.) — also were contacted by the FBI.

The question remains why no pre-dawn raid as in Burr’s case?
And will Feinstein have the honor to step down too!
