Weeks before most Americans had any idea of the impact Covid-19 would have on the American economy, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) sold off millions of dollars in stock and started telling wealthy constituents behind closed doors to prepare for the worst.
This week the FBI seized Senator Burr's cell phone as the agency continues to move forward on the investigation. In response, Senator Burr resigned from his position as Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
That's not good enough. Even in an era of nonexistent ethics and unfettered corruption, this despicable behavior cannot go unaddressed. Senator Burr must resign from the U.S. Senate immediately.
