"senator richard burr" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis
"Senator Richard Burr. Who until last week was the chair of the Senate? Intelligence Committee made these suspicious stock trades back in February. That's when most of us were still going to work going to the movies. Riding trains and buses. The reason Burr is under suspicion for insider trading is because around the same time. He cashed out that stock. He was saying remarkably different things about the krona virus in public and in private in public. He wrote not bad for Fox. News said the trump administration's corona virus response was going smoothly. But if you later when he was privately speaking to donors and lobbyists he warned them to date krona virus threat seriously. And that's where Tim. Mack comes in part of the reason. Why senator bursts stock sales seemed suspicious is the context that we learned about them in. You uncovered this audio. Can we talk about it a little bit? This is audio from back on February. Twenty seventh right. Where's it from and what's happening? I mean I think in order to really understand that audio we have to put ourselves back in the mindset of the world was like in February right and it's hard to kind of think back to pre corona crisis era. But that's what where we were. On February twenty seventh. The stock market had crashed. We hadn't had all these stay at home orders. The first person had not died in the United States from the cord virus but on February twenty. Seventh senator. Burr went to a luncheon with a group of well connected constituents These are people who are business leaders North Carolina Who have lobbying Firms representing them in Washington. Dc. He goes to this luncheon and he says that he's worried that this crisis will be calm probably as bad as possibly as bad as the nineteen eighteen pandemic. One thing I can tell you. This is much more recipe seen in recent. It's probably working to the and he says it in this kind of like offhand way almost like just yeah might happen which it now. We see differently but at the time. I don't think people were really making that comparison as much. No he seemed to really have dug into this question of what the prices would mean for America and he seemed to have some sort of information. About how bad it would be. He warned about schools shutting down. He warned about travel being. Shut down all of these things before. Most of the public had any inkling. The vast majority of public had any inkling that this would happen. Only be sure unity's obviously North Long. Have a transmission rate where they say a close schools for two weeks relate stay home. He warned that military hospitals would need to be set up in order to create beds and provide treatment to people who were sick now. Senator Byrd never came to the Mike and warn the public of his view on this despite his expertise on bio threats and And he's spent many years working on this issue. He never decided to warn the public. Put out a press release. Go to a television. A camera go to any the mics of many reporters who stand in front. I'm in front of him every day. He never warns the public. He warns this private group of individuals. And that's pretty much. Yeah and a few weeks earlier he'd written an op Ed for Fox News where he basically said were. You're in great hands. The trump administration is going to really handle this corona virus. Well right his message was. We've got all the tools necessary to deal with this coming crisis and then as soon as you reported about this meeting other information starts to come out about these stock trades. Tell me about that right. So there's this piece of legislation called the Stock Act in the Stock Act requires lawmakers to periodically disclosed their stock transactions. And what PROPUBLICA did was that. They went through his stock transactions and realized something that I hadn't found. Which is that senator. Burr had in series of very unusual transactions on February thirteenth made thirty three stock transactions and sold up to one point. Seven million dollars worth of stock A single day. And that's remember just a few days after that op ED. You mentioned where he says. Don't worry everything's GonNa be okay so a couple of days after the op-ed he sells off a bunch of stocks and then a few days after that. He makes the speech where he says. Listen this corona virus is going to be bad now. You said he sold off. I think one point. Seven million dollars worth of stock. How big of a deal is that for? Someone like Senator Bar that that that probably is a very significant portion of his net worth senator. Burr is not a wealthy senator. Relatively speaking I mean one point. Seven million dollars is a of money to me. But for a senator And someone of his age his net worth is not particularly high among his colleagues so this would represent a pretty substantial portion of his assets and remember. He has said that he is not going to run for reelection when his term ends in twenty twenty two so he's presumably thinking about retirement and he makes a move here. It appears to secure his future. Npr teamed up with Dartmouth College analyze. Senator bursts transactions. They were looking at birth stock sales on this one day February thirteenth to see how they compared to trades made in the past so typically between two thousand twelve to about twenty eighteen. Twenty nineteen senator. Burr is a very bad stock picker on average if you look at his stocks six months after he purchases a stock. They're down point eight percent relative to other stocks in the same industry and after a year. They're typically down about six percent compared with that same benchmark and we should be clear here. Which is this is senator. Burr buying these stocks himself. Right we don't know about his history but we do know that on February thirteenth senator. Burr has said that he transmitted those decisions to his broker. Personally I don't know about his history but it may be safe to say if he did it in this case he's typically been doing. He is kind of lousy about stock. Picks he doesn't trade in high frequencies you know he would on average in a quarter. Every quarter would make an average of three point two stock sale but on February thirteenth. He makes more than thirty stock sales on a single day so ten times ten times what he would normally do in a quarter and not only that these stock sales are amazing. Stock picks incredibly well-timed incredibly well chosen after the stocks were sold the underperformed the market by eight percent Right that means that the stocks performed worse than comparable stocks in that same sector between the sale and the end of March six weeks later. I mean the stock market began the crash. Maybe a week later ten days later I was looking through your reporting and I saw that you wrote to the senator spokesperson and said Hey. Do you WanNa talk about these stocks hills and that prison back just L. O. L. Let's crack true that happened. I can't I can't speculate about why that person would do that but that that did happen. So how does the senator defend himself here? How does he explain the SOCK sales? What the defense for an allegation of insider trading is to say. Well No. I didn't use non public information. I only relied on public information information. That you or I or anyone else would have. And so. He's argument is that he made these very well. Timed very precise very successful sales based only on reporting on the coronavirus that he saw on. Cnbc. That's his argument. And we should say that this opened up interest in other lawmakers to and how they were dealing with their own stocks but it seems like burs cases different. And I wonder if you can articulate. Why well there are a number of reasons why his transactions are more suspicious than some of the other names that we've heard put out there like Senator Leffler of Georgia and Senator Feinstein of California. Those are two names of people who either themselves or their spouses made some. Interestingly timed transactions but Senator Burr. I feel remains a focus of investigators for a number of reasons. He had this enormous number of transactions on a single day that volume of transactions was very unusual for him. He sold a lot of stocks of to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth of stocks in the hospitality sector. Which as we know has really been hit by the coronavirus crisis. He is private comments. This audio that. You've mentioned that we had from that meeting with well-connected constituents show his state of mind that his personal view contradicted his public his personal and private view show that he was deeply deeply concerned about how bad the corner virus crisis would become and finally he was personally behind the sales. His statement in response to some of this reporting was that he personally directed the sales. Senator Leffler for example has said that she used a third party and didn't personally direct any of her stock sales. So if you look at the tally of those circumstances you realize these circumstances are far more suspicious than the other. The other circumstances that have been pointed to in all of this reporting. It seems strange to me. That senators are even allowed to do this. Because even if you're not the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee you are going to have information on a confidential basis important information about the country. So I guess I feel like we're setting these lawmakers up for failure by saying you can trade stocks and serve rather than say. Put your money in a trust or you know. Everything is executed by third party. Why are senators even allowed to do this? It's an interesting question I mean. They've never been prohibited from doing so but there is a groundswell of lawmakers proposing legislation. Now that prohibits personal stock transactions that some lawmakers are now coming around the idea that lawmakers should not be allowed to make these individual stock transactions mutual funds okay. Etf's fine but individual stocks should individual stock trading should be prohibited by members of Congress. So let's talk about where we are now. Senator Burr is no longer the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee for the time being. Can you talk about the significance of that senator? Burr has been a mainstay on the Senate Intelligence Committee. I mean if you talk to Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee. You'll you'll find that many of them have a lot of respect for Senator Burr and that he's worked in generally bipartisan. Way when it comes to matters of intelligence in fact since the twenty sixteen And the kind of fallout in two thousand seventeen. He's been working across the aisle on a series of reports on Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election and afterwards as chairman. Senator Burr has just not been super public Not particularly accessible to the press but I think generally speaking as a chairman a lot of folks have praised for the work is done. I was surprised to see this investigation. Move forward against a Republican senator. And maybe that's just the cynic in me but I'm curious if you can kind of tease out here The decision making because there has been speculation that senator he was among one of the more. Bipartisan senators. You mentioned how he was. You know looking into Russia interference in the election. And I wonder if you think that speculation is fair. I think the answer to the question really depends on whether you think. The Justice Department maintains its independence in the kind of Burr era. Right the attorney general is working as the Attorney General of the United States or as president. Trump's attorney general. So you think that the Justice Department has become hopelessly politicized than you might have a fair question to raise about whether or not Senator. Burr was targeted here. Because you look at the history those close to the trump White House are not fans of Senator Burr. Because if you'll recall part of the Russian investigation senator. Burr helped approve a subpoena of Donald Trump. Junior to.

Sen. Richard Burr Faces Lawsuit Over Timing Of Stock Sale
"Water members of Congress going to do about stock trading by themselves. Revelations about Senator Richard. Burr raised this question. Our colleague Tim. Mack revealed that Senator Burr gave dire warnings about the pandemic to an exclusive group. A month ago that was a time when the president was downplaying the threat then propublica revealed that Burr also sold a lot of stock before the market crashed. Npr's Tim Mack still on this story. Tim Good Morning. Hey Good morning should lawmakers be trading in stocks at all well some lawmakers believe that they should be allowed to do that at all at lawmakers in the House of introduced what they call the band conflicted trading act. Now that's a bill. I championed by Jeff Merkley of Oregon in the Senate. It would prohibit lawmakers from trading individual stocks so along with Congressman Joanna Goose and Congresswoman Alexandria. Cossio Cortez Congressman Raja Krishna. More `they is one of the lead sponsors of the legislation. I think it's time that the public knows that their members of Congress are not profiteering. Off of you know information. They gained through their public service. It's not fair and it's not right. Democrats are the initial co-sponsors to the legislation but given the bipartisan outrage at Burr's actions they have some hope that Republicans will join them and to be clear this is telling lawmakers you can still have money. You can still try. A Mutual Fund Index Fund not individual stocks. Could PROFIT OFF OF INSIDE INFORMATION? Now this is not going to apply to Senator Booker if it becomes law. Because he's done what he's done but he's being sued isn't it? That's right Allan Allan Jacobsen of California was a shareholder in Wyndham hotels and resorts one of the stocks that bursts sold. And he's alleging that Senator Burr exploited information available to him as a senator for personal gain. Thomas O'Brien is lawyer representing Jacobson. And he said that they are trying to take the lead holding burr accountable. Back there. We're not waiting. For the Federal Government Regulatory Agencies. Were moving forward to remedy the wrong. With senator straight against are not I should note. I reset senator. Burs office for comment for the story but received no response Previously. He said that he relied only on public news stories to make his decision to dump stocks. He's also asked the Senate ethics committee to open an investigation into his own. Actions could face other scrutiny. Well the big question is whether the Justice Department and or the Securities and Exchange Commission will open up an investigation based on the facts. We already know in the public domain so to answer that I tried to ask around to people who had some experience in this manner. I spoke to Katie Goldstein. Who used to hold who used to lead these sorts of investigations in the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York? When I first read the allegations the thought that crossed my mind was it seems likely to me that there will be a grand jury investigation of this conduct. The circumstances were such that. I thought it was likely that. Us Attorneys Office. Perhaps the southern district of New York would open an investigation. So that's her view and her estimation but to be clear there's no evidence to the actual investigation has started. I also reached out to the Justice Department and the SEC. And they had no comment so a couple of things going on people saying there. Oughta be a law and also maybe impressions about whether Burr broke an existing law. Tim thanks so

Mondays so much I guess but not maybe it's worth a try maybe we'll try it at the office a forty percent productivity that is a lot anyways okay so California recently passed a bill that said that athletes are allowed to profit off of their lightness and their intellectual property now of course this fly in the face flew in the face of the NCAA which didn't allow it at the time but since then the NCAA actually voted to allow it now this is not saying athletes this is saying that if you want to and your popular enough and someone to give you money for your intellectual property for your likeness then you can actually take it and while you're in school and so I think that's kind of a big step and we did talk about this a few weeks ago on the show I'm you can always refer back to it but eight I in California started this and now the NCAA seems to be it opting in so maybe that's a good thing but immediately and I'm talking the less than an hour later this senator said if college athletes are going to make money off their likeness well in school their scholarship should be treated like income all be introducing legislation that subject scholarship scholarships given athletes who choose to passion to income taxes man okay I is that fair should they be subject to income taxes because now they are profiting from their likeness room no I don't think so I think we're attacks so much as it is will leave us alone well what do we need to be taxed more for this is ridiculous they're not cashing in there trying to survive have you met a college student senator Richard Burr I think his name is yes senator Richard Burr I mean come on given by the union given an hour before you decided to trying tax it so I I understand what they're trying to do and I understand they're trying to make an in compliance with all the other taxes and bottled water but is I mean it's right that's not fair why are we being taxed so much it's not like this is a lot of money is well this is a very small amount of money college athletes if they're going to get their money for their like these I can't imagine that like every single person can be millions of dollars it might be one like Johnny Mandel was when he was in school he would have definitely garnered some big big money but really come on what about like the local kid who's on the swim team who has won the NCA a bunch of times and some local card your dealership wants to put him in an ad and he gets like five grand from it and you're gonna wanna trying you know make that income tax to or they're sick and take the scholarship now what if there are two hundred thousand dollars scholarship and now you're gonna say that's taxable under income tax to what we do in they're just kids what I'm trying get something here it's a struggle as it is but they just medially just go straight for the tax and you wonder why Congress has an approval rating of around twenty five percent I'm not trying to get political on the show but I think everyone can kind of agree here well we get especially in California if you're listening here in California you get taxed enough I will make that statement if you don't think we're getting taxed enough please call in I would love to hear from you but we do and die every time we turn our heads it seems like were we're getting taxed again in here that's another example right

That's really smart and important on the ground that has been there for all of these elections of prime minister Netanyahu said we're gonna win. He says we have it. So we'll be watching passing on information. Right. So we've got all these other stories we're covering here. We have Judicial Watch has been able to get these cover up discussions as relates to the Clinton Email server Platz rivers network. I just read to you how they actually describe in detail the use of bleach bid to a race that says quote documents showing the use of bleach pit on Clinton server and the bleach bit program was downloaded from a vendor called source forge at eleven forty two AM March thirty first twenty fifteen according to the computer event, log and over the next half hour, they use bleach fit to delete the files on Hillary server documents also containing. Emails handwritten notes written in June and July of twenty fifteen now remember twenty fifteen is the primary season. You know, everybody's out there trying to get into the debates cetera et cetera. Anyway. They redacted sender rights to a State Department. Official name Margaret Peggy great feld that the inadvertent release of the State Department's equities when this collection is released in its entirety the potential damage to the farm relations of the United States could be significant McCullough Fords. The concern saying, well, you need need you plugged in on this. Right. So then that that's all sent June twenty-seventh now twenty fifteen while working with the inspector. I personally reviewed hundreds of documents in the Hillary Rodham Clinton collection, meaning in her offsite. Server, which is illegal. I can now say without reservation. There are literally hundreds of classified emails in this collection may be more. For example. There are comment -partment staff in. Emails relating to the WikiLeaks on authorized disclosures. Many of the emails relating to this actually confirm the information in the disclosures. Now, the materialists subject to foia litigation freedom of information act, litigation and the emails will now have to be found reviewed an upgraded and upgraded means oh, oh, you no longer classified and under the executive order one three five to six it would be in our right to classify the entire Hillary Rodham Clinton collection at the secret level because of the mosaic affect so they all of this was done by her illegally. All of this was done to avoid congressional oversight. And then it goes on to say while there may be. In any equities in this collection, including private classified information. I'm very concerned about the inadvertent release of the State Department equities when this collection is released in its entirety the potential damage to foreign relations of the United States could be significant. This is interesting now, we have another Email to June twenty-ninth twenty fifteen need you plugged in on this need to coordinate with states WB person, August twenty fifteen classified memo prepared by the FBI counterintelligence division regarding the findings with respect to Hillary's Email server. The FBI noted that the I g had found that an sampling of over only forty of Hillary's thirty thousand emails four classified emails were found out of forty subsequent letters sent to Senator Richard Burr and to. Denied directed. Clapper regarding the sample of Clinton emails noted that they were all classified at the secret level. Hey, let me stop there. That means she committed violated the espionage act, that's a felony eighteen US three seven nine three and the FBI knew about it right here. And then in two thousand fifteen that's what this means. You're later they would exonerate her a year because we knew the investigation was rigged. We now know that according to the closed door testimony of page struck that they were saying is much. Is ridiculous. They're all Democrats. Of course, she's getting off. And she did and struct. It would be almost a year later before Peter Struck interviewed her in the interim may of twenty sixteen. Remember, we're now in August twenty fifteen and may of twenty sixteen they began writing the exoneration investigation in hardly begun of Hillary Clinton. Home even denied it. So he's in trouble there anyway. So. They were able to take a small sampling. Forty emails four the forty had classified information on it. In august. Twenty fifteen internal FBI memo. The FBI noted Hillary had signed a June twenty eighth twenty eleven official correspondence advising all State Department employees, quote, due to recent targeting of personal Email accounts by online adversaries State Department employees should avoid conducting official department business from their personal Email accounts. So she knew that it was dangerous. She did it. Anyway, she just continued same FBI memo noted that under secretary of state for management, Patrick Kennedy sent a memo to all senior State Department officials on August twenty eight twenty fourteen including EPs excerpts from the foreign affairs manual said classified information must be sent via classified Email channels only that's another warning that she had and she's giving out warnings. And what you'd issue watch found is a lot of infighting between the department of state and the under Secretary, Patrick Kennedy, and the IC I j over the processing of potentially compromise Clinton Email communications as June fifteenth twenty fifteen memo for the record prepared by the I see I g regarding the State Department review of Hillary's emails indicating among other things that retired foreign service officers that the state was using to. Review? Hillary's emails were not optimal evaluation of other agencies. Equities optimal State Department is currently relying on retired senior foreign service officers to review for other agencies and for freedom of information act requests, for example, or view of the first set of two hundred ninety six emails received from former secretary Clinton and released to the State Department freedom of information act website identified material that would have been referred to the I see freedom of information act fficials for review prior to release recommendation recommend State Department boy office request staff support offices to assist with identification of intelligence community. They wanted their own people in there to cover it up. What that means? That's what that means. And they have the freedom of information act personnel. You know, looking at this from the standpoint now of oak, can we protect Hillary so clear whether department of Justice is reviewing the emails before for your release, former secretary Clinton's emails are the subject of numerous foia requests, multiple foia lawsuits, and it may be prudent integrate the department of Justice into the foyer process review insure redaction can withstand potential legal challenges of not already being done recommend State Department for your office. Incorporate the department of Justice into the foyer process to ensure the legal sufficiency review of exemptions and reductions, oh, they're talking about reductions to NASA navy and the FBI and State Department. I g. Stephen linac mentions an incident may thirteenth twenty eleven to twenty eight AM Abidine, Phil rain potential hack. I guess it's fill whatever fully pay rains. I guess anyway Clinton's IT technical technician. Brian Paglia, no sent to Bill Clinton's aid. Justin Cooper, a Bill indicating that on July twenty eight twenty nine twenty twelve that Paglia no had to address the issue of mail box corruption. Of Hillary Clinton's Email server spending a total of five point five hours on the problem. Other invoice item show, you had to fix corruption and Justin Cooper's mailbox ever conference call with the security team blocks Bammer with a Viagra message, and this and that goes on from there. And then they talked about clean up the virus from the blackberry profile multiple root force attacks against Hillary server requiring him to reset the password. I got into the server was hacked. Documents show. Paglia leanna was paid forty grand over four years the clean up that mess. Hagley ano- repeatedly invoked his fifth amendment rights and a deposition, which you'd issue then you have a twenty fifteen letter from the secret service to the counterintelligence division of the FBI addressing a request regarding preservation records in connection with Clinton's Email system letter off also sites Judicial Watch litigation concerning preservation of or Email records secret service writes that it searches did not reveal any response documents. We already had done that and the national archives requests for information from the State Department, and it goes on from there is a November twenty twelve classified Email from Jake Sullivan Clinton's top policy advisor discuss a report of arrests possible Benghazi connection with her. Jio? It's all night. That's why she never wanted to be on the system. Request for travel November twenty fifteen FBI dispatch special agents Spain Enviro Bahrain to conduct interviews in the mid year exam regarding sensitive investigative power matter. David Kendall Clinton's lawyer that's included in the letters candle rights. The State Department inspector General J that the State Department is in possession of Clinton's work related emails. It continues Hillary's personnel. We will continue to retain the preservation copy of the file containing electron of copies of those emails on a thumb drive that is stored in a secure safe at the offices of William Connolly. What's going on here? And now on covered a cover up of records on the illicit clean Clinton Email scandal system, that's the whole point here, and you get to I'll get into this in the next hour with Jarrett David show. But now we have also today a full breakdown of the testimony behind closed doors of James Baker. James baker. We now know was arguing that. In fact, Hillary violated the espionage act, which of all things all days, we now have Judicial Watch report that confirms that they picked forty emails randomly of the thirty three thousand and four of them at classified top secret information on them. And then this effort, they literally described the time in the date the bleach bit was used. At that. But they protected her because they hated Trump and they wanted her to remain the candidate to be Trump. That's why they used her phony dossier with Russian lies that she paid for. That's why they back door to spy on the Trump campaign. Why too and committing a fraud to the FIS accord that didn't tell the FIS court that in fact, Hillary paid for the Russian lies, Bruce or warned everybody she paid for it? It was not verified a corroborated and that Christopher Steele hated Trump. But yet it was still the bulk of information used in the FIS applications, they got a back door into all things Trump world as part of an insurance policy to bludgeon him is worse than I ever thought. You realize what's coming out? We're going to get three oh two's. We are gonna get gang avait. We're going to get more of these close-door testimonies. We are going to get the FIS applications. We're going to get the inspector general report, we're gonna get John Uber's report. And then we're going to get these criminal referrals from seven newness. Let me just tell you this.
