No charges for ‘Tricky Dick’ Burr
Apparently, there’s ONE set of rules for the elite in Washington and New York, and another set for us little people. You and I would be behind bars if we had tried the crap Richard Burr has appeared to have gotten away with:
A Justice Department insider trading probe into Sen. Richard Burr — who sold up to $1.7 million in stocks early in the COVID-19 pandemic — has ended without charges.
“Tonight, the Department of Justice informed me that it has concluded its review of my personal financial transactions conducted early last year,” Burr said in a statement.
“The case is now closed. I’m glad to hear it,” the North Carolina Republican said.
Burr was among four senators investigated by the Justice Department for their stock sales. He made the sale while at the same time publicly downplaying the virus threat.
The cases against the other three — Sens. Kelly Loeffler, Dianne Feinstein and James Inhofe — were dropped by the feds last May.
That same month, Burr’s cellphone was seized by the FBI as part of the insider trading investigation, leading him to step down as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The senators’ stock sales had sparked widespread, bipartisan outrage.
At the time, Burr sat in confidential coronavirus briefings on a near-daily basis while publicly downplaying the threat of the soon-to-be pandemic in media appearances and op-eds he authored.

The Patriot Party will destroy the 2 party system in America. Republican Establishment have underestimated the Trump Base’s loyaltyonce again and for the LAST time !
I wonder if Congressman Rino Murphy wishes he would have supported Trump now that he is starting his own party? With the exception of Congressman Budd the entire House and senate delegation will be removed! What a terrible joke the Republican Party has been on the naive American people.! The Republican Party is finished!
How do these Congressman who often have no real career before entering politics amass such fortunes?
The Republican Party Establishment has done nothing but enable the Democrats for decades. It needs to die. We have to build a new conservative movement. We have no choice!
