DOJ drops probes of 3 senators who sold stock after coronavirus briefings

The Justice Department closed investigations into three senators: Kelly Loeffler; Jim Inhofe; and Dianne Feinstein, who had made significant stock transactions ahead of the market crash caused by the spread of coronavirus. A probe into stock transactions did not find sufficient evidence they had broken the law. A separate investigation into the stock sales of Sen Richard Burr remains ongoing.

Huh? Burr waited until after it was public knowledge and he had lost money, while the others sold stock between the senate briefing and the declaration of emergency. He also sold the smallest amount of stuck of the people implicated. Don't get me wrong, Burr is a douche, but he played this one legally.

The funny part is I was selling stock a month before the hearing. It was public knowledge that supply lines were going to be disrupted in early December. Not sure how this is considered inside information.

Truly another dispicable Barr-led corrupt action to allow wealthy and powerful people bypass laws and restrictions. Any one else would be in court as defendants.

Why would they need his cell phone? If they are trying to pull texts, what's stopping him from deleting them or factory resetting his phone at any time? I do that every 3 months or so.
