Burr sold townhouse for $900K to lobbyists

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Burr, previously under the scanner for selling shares ahead of the market crash following COVID-19 briefings, is now reported to have sold a townhouse to lobbyists. Burr sold his Washington, D.C., townhouse in 2017 to a team led by lobbyist for $900,000, which as per estimates was tens of thousands of dollars above market value. The sale was off-market.

As much as I want the swamp drained, selling a townhouse over value was very common in 2017. He sold a townhouse in one of the most in demand regions in the country for 10% over value, around the same time we sold my grandmother’s house for 20% over asking in a less desirable area. Now with that said Barr selling off stocked because of insider knowledge on covid is probably illegal or at least pretty scummy.

This is why we should have term limits for congress as well the presidency. Any sniff of corruption should be investigated by a bipartisan committee of judges outside of the supreme court. No senator or Congress person should be allowed to vote on a committee in which they or their family are likely to profit. For example, Pelosi sat on a committee which decided that certain banks would be given a billion dollar bail out when her husband had a huge amount of shares in that bank.
