Oh, How The Republicans Complained About Hillary's Investing in Cattle Futures.

[quote]On Jan. 23, as word spread through Congress that the coronavirus posed a major economic and public health threat, U.S. Sen. David Perdue (R-Georgia) sold off $1 million to $5 million in Cardlytics stock at $86 a share before it plunged, according to congressional disclosures.

Weeks later, in March, after the company’s stock plunged further following an unexpected leadership shakeup and lower-than-forecast earnings, Perdue bought the stock back for $30 a share, investing between $200,000 and $500,000.

Those shares have now quadrupled in value, closing at $121 a share on Tuesday.[/quote]

Seems like insider trading

If I were running the DSCC, I'd be running an ad about that day and night thru January 5th.

I don't think one is particularly effective.

I'd tell the DSCC: K.I.S.S. - Keep it simple, stupid.

Leave Trump out of it entirely. He's immaterial to what Perdue did.

Put in numbers. The millions he made on the stock deal.

When you are a member of the GOP, you don't have to follow the rules concerning insider trading.
