Several U.S. senators sold their investments in companies based on insider information about the impacts the coronavirus will have on the American and global economy. Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) began to sell her stock holdings after a briefing she received on Jan. 24, then reinvested in Citrix, a remote working company. As late as Feb. 28, Loeffler was downplaying the impact of the disease while accusing the Democrats of politicizing the virus. Republicans are not alone in being accused. Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) sold millions in a biotech company, although it is not as clear cut a case as Loeffler's. In response to the accusations, Senator Richard Burr, one of many senators accused, says his private actions are in line with his public actions—at no point did he pretend coronavirus was not a problem or big deal.
