US Senator Stocks Up More Than Toilet Paper

Posted on: Tue 19 May 2020

The FBI have opened an investigation into Senator Richard Burr, a Republican from North Carolina, in response to insider trading of up to $1.7 million in stocks.

This took place before Covid-19 posed an obvious public health threat, but after congress had been privately briefed about the potential of a pandemic and recession.

US Correspondent, Taylor Kaplan, joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to discuss this and other news from the United States.
