Some Senators Face Allegations of Stock Dumping

Their actions followed briefing prior to coronavirus crash.

Allegations have been made that four members of the Senate sold off stocks worth millions of dollars in the days before the coronavirus outbreak crashed the market. The information comes from data reported on a U.S. Senate website that contains financial disclosures from Senate members.

It appears that, in at least two cases, shares were sold after the senators received a briefing on the virus and shortly before the market began to tumble. Calls for investigations and possible resignations are already being heard.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to be at work in the hearts and minds of our leaders and that they would always act in ways that are above reproach.
  • For our leaders to work together to solve the issues in the nation and to not be tempted to take advantage of the system.
  • For integrity in the federal government and the leaders of the nation.
