It is fucking insane to me that members of congress are allowed to trade stock— Ken Klippenstein (@kenklippenstein) August 12, 2021

Rand Paul revealed today that his wife bought stock in Gilead — which makes an antiviral drug used to treat the coronavirus — on Feb. 26, 2020, before the threat from covid was fully understood by the public. He disclosed 16 MONTHS later than required. https://t.co/ZgDkh3ivoi— James Hohmann (@jameshohmann) August 11, 2021
It is absolutely wild that members of Congress are still allowed to buy and sell individual stock. It shouldn’t be legal.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) August 12, 2021
We’ve introduced legislation to end the practice, but as one can imagine it’s a very uphill battle to pass.
This shouldn’t even be controversial though! https://t.co/lgtcASwCFz
This warrants an investigation, including whether Paul’s wife was simply a pass-through for him. Delayed disclosure can be powerful evidence of consciousness of guilt. I hope SDNY gets this investigation because that office is the most experienced with insider trading cases. https://t.co/GrJMZpguLC— Daniel Goldman (@danielsgoldman) August 12, 2021
Kelly Loeffler, Dan Crenshaw, Jim Inhofe, Ron Johnson, Richard Burr, David Perdue and Rand Paul were all committing criminal insider trading at the very start of the pandemic in or around February-March 2020.— Ricky Davila (@TheRickyDavila) August 12, 2021
Martha Stewart went to jail for far less than what they all did.
