Scoop: The stock that Rand Paul’s wife bought in the maker of Remdisivir early in the Covid pandemic was the only time in 10 years that Paul or his wife had purchased shares of an individual stock.— Christina Wilkie (@christinawilkie) August 13, 2021

Rand Paul downplayed COVID and bought Gilead stock. DeSantis downplayed it and is pushing pricey Regeneron over a free vaccine. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue downplayed it and invested in BODY BAGS. The “pro-life” party sure loves to profit from death.— The Volatile Mermaid (@OhNoSheTwitnt) August 13, 2021
Even more damning than we thought— Lindy Li (@lindyli) August 13, 2021
The Gilead stock that Rand Paul’s wife bought in Feb ‘20 was the ONLY time in 10 years that the couple had purchased shares of a single stock
She bought the shares after the private Covid briefing for Senators
Well, this stinks to high heaven
Suspicious that Ron DeSantis is suddenly pushing Regeneron so hard— Lindy Li (@lindyli) August 12, 2021
Costs $1500 per dose while vaccines are FREE. Company has a history of kickbacks
Is this another case of insider trading?
He had a call with Regeneron’s CEO last week. Any campaign donations involved?
Rand Paul and his wife had not bought stock in an individual company in at least 10 years before Kelley Paul purchased shares of the drug company Gilead Sciences.— Julia Davis (@JuliaDavisNews) August 13, 2021
That purchase was made one day after the first clinical trial began for Gilead’s Remdesivir.https://t.co/dq81XfkM2o
Wow — Republican Sen. Rand Paul and his wife had not bought stock in an individual company in a decade. After Paul was briefed on Covid, his wife bought Gilead, the company that makes Remdisivir, CNBC reports.— Hugo Lowell (@hugolowell) August 13, 2021
In February 2020, the day after Gilead began clinical trials of Covid drug Remdesivir (a month before America learned about Covid), Rand Paul’s wife bought shares in the company, her first purchase of stock in an individual company in a decade.

Just 8 days after Rand Paul bought stock in Gilead, he was the only Senator to vote against an emergency bill to curb the COVID-19 outbreak.— Charles Booker (@Booker4KY) August 12, 2021
He waited 16 months to disclose this information.
We need a full investigation of Rand Paul’s insider trading.
Rand Paul is as crooked as a dog's hind leg.— Jon Cooper 🇺🇸 (@joncoopertweets) August 13, 2021
Did Rand Paul’s wife trade on inside information from her husband? An investigation should find out. But there’s a simple fix to financial conflicts in Washington: Politicians, their staffers and their spouses shouldn’t be allowed to trade stocks. https://t.co/tKjTvDwOZh— Tim O'Brien (@TimOBrien) August 13, 2021
