Man, do we hate when we have to call out our fellow conservatives for doing something wrong.

We’d like to think that most conservative politicians are doing the RIGHT thing in every situation – but the fact is that conservatives are as fallible as anyone else. Regardless of their values, they’re just as likely to fall to temptation as the next person.

But we, as their fellow conservatives, do tend to hold them to a higher standard…

Which is why it’s so disappointing when one, or, in this case, three, of them fall.

If you haven’t heard yet…

Four different senators, including three Republicans, dumped MILLIONS in stocks after a private briefing on the Wuhan virus warned of a potential market crash—a move that roughly amounts to insider trading.

If this is true—and all signs point to the fact that it is—then all four of these people should have to face the consequences of their illegal actions.

As bad as this is…

It’s more disheartening to know that conservatives made up 75% of the people who dumped HUGE amounts of stock before the markets went haywire over the Wuhan virus.

The Perpetrators

The three GOP senators—Richard Burr, Kelly Loeffler, and James Inhofe—dumped a combined $5.2 million in stocks the day after the Senate Health Committee and Senate Intelligence Committee were briefed on the extent to which COVID-19 could impact America and its economy.

Richard Burr, Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, sold off $1.7 million in stocks…

Loeffler dumped $3.1 million.

Inhofe either wasn’t that greedy—or just didn’t have that much invested to begin with—as he only sold $400K worth.

That’s bad…

But none of them were as bad as longstanding Democrat mouthpiece Diane Feinstein, the fourth Congressperson involved in the scandal. This almost 30-year tenured senator and member of the Burr’s Senate Intelligence Committee singlehandedly sold upwards of $6 million in stock.

What makes it doubly bad is the fact that Feinstein’s stock was in a biotech company—making it look just like the insider trading that sent Martha Stewart to prison.

This looks bad on EVERYBODY involved…

And while it’s good to see that greed is bipartisan, what’s NOT good—at least in the eyes of this writer—is the fact that these public servants had THAT much money in the markets in the first place.

A WORSE Crime Than Insider Trading

Think about this…

On a yearly salary of $174,000, these four senators were sitting on MILLIONS of dollars in stock equity.

How does this happen?!

It seems that if you’re serving your country, then you should be actually SERVING your country…

Not getting rich.

How these people have become millionaires in the service of the American people is beyond baffling.

Are they corrupt?

Are they using their positions, power, and connections to get themselves, their spouses, or their family members opportunities the rest of Americans don’t get?

It’s hard not to see how easy this would be for them to do…

Remember, Nancy Pelosi’s net worth jumped from about $11 million in 2008 to over $100 million by 2016.

How did she increase here wealth by 1,000 times when the rest of the world was getting poorer?

It’s shameful…

At least Trump came into office rich. He made his money from work and sacrifice over a long career. How exactly did they make theirs?

Either way, this is something that needs to be looked at when the worst of the pandemic has passed us by—and, if warranted, arrests SHOULD be made.

We can’t tolerate this kind of behavior from elected officials, Right or Left…

We need to let them know their crooked ways will not be tolerated and that we’re sick of politicians getting WEALTHY off the backs of the American people.

This is a wake-up call, folks…

And hopefully, the bureaucrats in DC are hearing it loud and clear.
