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!

Burr later sold off his stocks in 33 separate transactions before the stock markets actually crashed.
