If Obamagate wasn’t bad enough, Democrats now have another massive scandal on their hands.
And it involves one of the biggest names in the party.
The FBI knocked on the door of a Democrat Senator. Then all hell broke loose.
Washington, D.C. buzzed about the FBI seizing the cell phone of Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr as part of an investigation into insider trading.
Burr was on a committee that received a classified briefing back in February about the dangers the coronavirus posed to the American economy.
After that briefing, Burr allegedly sold $1.7 million in stock the week before the stock market began a sell off leading to a 10,000 point crash.
But Burr was not the only Senator to execute suspicious stock trades.
California Democrat Dianne Feinstein’s husband also allegedly sold off stock after that briefing, which led to the FBI paying Feinstein a visit.
A spokesman for Dianne Feinstein says the FBI asked her “basic questions” in April about her husband's stock trades, and that she provided documents showing she had no involvement.
A spokeswoman for Kelly Loeffler said the FBI had not contacted her. https://t.co/rooGHkUoTn

Democrats are planning to try and turn one of Donald Trump’s strengths – his message to “Drain the Swamp” – into a weakness by launching a smear campaign based on false claims about the President presiding over a culture of corruption.
But Dianne Feinstein – one of the most senior members of the Democrat Party – getting caught up in a FBI investigation over shady stock trades will severely undercut that message.
