WHILE LIFE AS WE KNOW IT HAS BEEN COLLAPSING AROUND US, four US Senators, who were privately briefed in advance of the severity of the coronavirus epidemic, apparently used the information to sell millions of dollars of stocks before the stock markets began to crash! Illegal? Insider trading? Listen and you be the judge!

Here is the scoop from Tom's guest, journalist Robert Faturechi of Propublica.

NPR obtained a secret tape of Senator Richard Burr on February 27th, 2020 cluing in big contributors about what was coming while Donald Trump and his supporters were calling the then-coming pandemic "a hoax". Burr later sold off his stocks in 33 separate transactions before the stock markets actually crashed.

Here's even more from TheHill.comFour senators sold stocks before coronavirus threat crashed market.
