    They came down on Martha Stewart for $50,000 stock sale. The trouble was that she was not a Senator or a Congress woman.

    It’s not insider trading. The disaster was common knowledge they were only pretending not to know for political purposes. It’s worse.

      Actually this is correct. The information of the Coronavirus was in the papers. Any citizen could have sold off their stock if they so chose after the first case was reported in the U.S. or even after it was reported in China. Judgement call. I don’t think Congress had inside information in this case. If they have portfolios, they have every right to act upon publicly available information as anyone else.

    This is actually an act of Treason by all 3, one of which has done insider trading for decades. All 3 should be imprisoned.

    The sad thing is that “insider trading” by politicians is completely legal. There are no laws against it. But if you or I did it, straight to jail. This is why so many politicians become millionaires.
