Richard Burr参议员因为非法使用内幕消息抛售股票辞职。

The Republican chairman of the US Senate intelligence committee will step down while an insider trading inquiry is carried out.

Richard Burr of North Carolina said he had decided to do so because he did not want the investigation to distract the committee from its work.

Mr Burr's phone has been seized by the FBI as part of the inquiry.

The senator, who denies wrongdoing, allegedly used inside information to avoid market losses from coronavirus.

He declined a request for comment.

Mr Burr and his wife sold as much as $1.7m (£1.4m) of equities in February, just before markets plunged on fears of an economic crisis.

It is illegal for members of Congress to trade based on non-public information gathered during their official duties.

Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and James Inhofe of Oklahoma, as well as Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, also reportedly sold holdings before the downturn, but are not confirmed to be under investigation.

Ms Feinstein said she had answered questions from the FBI regarding trades made by her husband, however.

作为参议院情报委员会主席,他可以每天阅读情报机构输送的情报文件。

这个参议员在1月下旬至2月中旬之间卖出了30多只股票。一些股票属于现在被冠状病毒影响的行业,例如旅馆,饭店和航运业,而且他还和北卡一个私营企业警告了疫情可能失控的判断。

现在burr已经被FBI调查。

在Reddit上讨论也很激烈,有这个内幕消息明明应该去贷款加杠杆买空一波,三次熔断可以增值百倍。说明还是智商没到那个程度。
w我还以为是attorney general Barr最后发现是Burr

个人认为难以定罪,人家也有可能根据public information作出的判断。除非从他手机or邮件里搜出了实锤
很令人吃惊,参议院设计的初衷有在模仿罗马时期的元老院体制,而众议院类似于罗马的公民大会,参议员应当是和罗马元老院议员富有见识,对国家具有责任感,并且基于理智进行判断的公民。Burr先生展现了见识和判断力,唯独缺乏了责任感,作为参议员情报委员会主席却只关心自己1.7m美元的股票,不告诉全体人民而是告诉自己本地的一个私营企业。在罗马时代,这种不称职的议员应该被流放。
他是什么党派呢
共和党的

符合我的心理预期。
如果他有关注品葱新闻的话,那么就不用等到February, January就可以卖了。😂
