The news is out: [Washington — The Senate Ethics Committee has dropped its investigation into whether Senator Kelly Loeffler, a Republican from Georgia, engaged in insider trading before the coronavirus pandemic roiled the financial markets, it said Tuesday.
The panel said in a letter to Loeffler that it “did not find evidence” her stock trades violated federal law, Senate rules or standards of conduct.
The Georgia Republican celebrated the committee’s dismissal of the matter, writing on Twitter “the fake news media takes another loss. Exonerated. Again.”]
Like I wrote before, everyone working for the government is involved in taking bribes and insider trading. That’s above and beyond money laundering. They are above the law. Fall-out is always unlikely.
