"R T H Welcome back to our words. Money matters. Scott Hanson McLane, all right this last week. Justice Department said they weren't going to pursue charges against Senator Richard Burr. Remember Richard Burr? Here's how quickly things change. Right. So this Richard Burr, GOP Senator Richard Burr. He was accused of making some stock trades ahead of the pandemic. Oh, yeah, he was in the meetings, whether we're talking about a global crisis, and he was making trade, but apparently he said that it was just it was looking at the news. You got it all from basic news. Well acquainted in China, and so, uh, Is, he said he These some of his trades at Spirit lawmakers. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses that stocks sank by mid March. Well, but he would have been better off not making this right. That's why I brought this up. Yes, I forgot all about the store because there's a handful of lawmakers and that was the time most of us he never got back in. When you get back in. Yeah, even that the insider information. He messed it up and he works for the government, he said. Congressman right? E mean, I just thought that I saw that other than I thought. It's how I mean kind of funny. Yeah, I guarantee didn't go back in. Well, you know, we waited some close to home. My daughter. First job has a little bit of money saved. And so he invests in the Simply 506 weeks before And that the coin right six weeks. I have another son that had some money saved and he has actually studying for this. CF, a chartered financial analyst. Pretty smart guy economy major, and he Had taken his money out and told her that she was making a mistake, eh? So he was timing the market. My daughter bought six weeks before the market falls, and I asked the approximately say like, how did you do this last year? Colleen. She's telling me and then I said to myself Well, you can't speak on major, not nearly as well. There we are. Being an investor is very difficult. It's a mean the emotional It is emotional and being a successful investor is challenging. Most people If you look at studies that looks at what, like you look over a long period of time, 20 year time horizon, the stock market returns. Just if you just look to the say the S and P 500, the broad market. And then looked how individual investors do compared to them all. They do worse compared to the market compared to the market because they tend to move into those assets that have already run up in price and move out of assets at The wrong times, right? They'd buy high and they sell low. Yes. And easy. Riding through a pandemic. A financial crisis like we had a few years back dot com bubble that bursts all of those Something's gonna happen in the not too distant future. Whether that's what you should not change your investors 10 years. You should not change your investment portfolio unless your situation changes when you have the right one going in. That's right. When I look at my own 41 K right, I put the maximum. I was allowed every step of the way for the last 20 years. I have to six years. Might Children's friends come to me often and asked me to allocate. Therefore, one case I show them what I'm doing on the allocation and kind of educate him. This is what and then I used myself was an example Has I've always just put in the max that was allowed by law. And I never, ever changed my equity position. It's always been 100% stocks, and this is what it's at now. The guy's like, You're kidding me. I know And it's not any special genius. It's just consistency. Put the maximum and the maximum from day one. First time I ever got a job that I had a 401 k 1st paycheck that I was eligible. Put it in. Because I figured look, I've lived without that money anyway. What's the maximum this year? 19 Granny? Yeah, And then there's a catch up of There's 6000 something like that. So I think it's 25 Grand 26 grand if you're over age 50 Correct a 50 year old But if you're young getting in your twenties thirties new car, Let's say you're out of five years out of college. There's no reason you can't be putting in the Max Boon your forum. OK? Yes, especially if you're used to not making any money to begin with. Don't new money to you. So it's letting it's letting the markets run their course. But When every day When I get up, I glanced the markets. Obviously one of the first things I do in the morning you look at me. Where do you not? Look at the markets? Looking good. Get for you like good discipline. Look the market until 80 Okay, just like go without saying that you look at the markets and you It's not going to change behavior. Why do you I don't know. Maybe they probably Yeah, we kind of have to. It's perfect job, but I honestly hope for down days Because the more we go with an ups and 150 points to another percentage wise NASDAQ and up another percent Another 1.5% a path of percent o down quarter of percent up 1.5%.

Justice Department closes investigation into Senator Burr

"Well they're warning to senators who intend to trade. On inside information. You will probably not face consequences. North carolina senator richard. Burr found out. Yesterday he won't be charged with insider trading by the department of justice for selling off stocks in february just weeks before the market crashed. Burr was the subject of a month long investigation into a sale of between six hundred thirty thousand and one point seven million dollars in stocks after he receives senators only briefings that made the severity of the cova threat. Clear for other senators were also implicated including kelly laughlin and david purdue but they were absolved wrongdoing by august of last year. That freed up the georgia senators to get back to their first priorities of wearing jeans to try and look normal and still losing runoff elections. Burs investigation went on longer involving grand jury subpoenas and even the fbi caesar of the cell phone. He stepped down from his position as chairman of the senate intelligence committee during that process though he had already announced his plan to retire when his term ends and twenty twenty two presumably his flawless portfolio.

"Senator Kelly La Flor dumped millions in stocks following a private cove it 19 briefing. Prompting a Justice Department investigation that ultimately didn't lead to any charges. And she wasn't the only senator that got caught. So did Senators Richard Burr of North Carolina, James Inhofe of Oklahoma and Dianne Feinstein of California. Why are lawmakers allowed to trade on inside information when their actions with with the rest of us in prison here to tell us his Joe No. Sarah, a Bloomberg opinion columnist. Remind us about the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act or Stock Act. What's it about? Well in 11 2060 minutes ran pretty explosive piece. About Insider trading by congressmen and senators, and it's a different kind of insider trading because they're not getting, you know a company secret or something like that. But they have information through private briefings. The congressional hearings through you know all sorts of means. They get access to information that can affect companies that other people don't have. And her decade forever has been perfectly legal to trade on that information. So after the 60 minutes story came out Congress quickly and hastily put together a law called the Stock Act. All those wars that you just used And what 11 intention and one intention only to prevent legislators from taking advantage of the inside information that they have to trade stocks that simple as that. And is there any indication that it's worked? No, none whatsoever. Uh, nobody's been prosecuted. I don't even know that they have been very pending investigation and You know what I would say that most of the legislator to senators and congressmen, most of them, you know, probably don't don't trade on inside information, many of them don't trade it all. But still, it'll do as we have discovered fairly recently since the beginning of the pandemic. Since the pandemic, there were trades by four senators that raised concerns and those senators were Richard Burr. Kelly, La Flor James in off and Dianne Feinstein. What happened because I haven't heard much about the resolution of those concerns. Well, yeah. Uh, the four senators all made trays after achieving a private briefing. About about the pandemic, and this is before most of us even realized the pendant necklace. They're going to hit. The U. S. Where we were. On and they were being told, you know, by Anthony Fauci and others that you know this is gonna be a big deal, and it was gonna have a major effect on the country. And they may trade that you know, in some cases selling back that would be affected by the pandemic and in some cases buy stocks that would be affected by the pandemic. And in three of the four cases after the dust department looked into it, they decided that there was nothing to it, and all of them said that You know their investment by those who had made these decisions without their important without even their knowledge. And that was the end of it. The fourth in it was Richard Burr of North Carolina. And hey, piece was a little bit different. He is gold. $1.7 million worth of stock. You know, after these private briefings and yet, yes. You know, he was the head of the with the head of the The Senate Intelligence Committee. So he had all kinds of private information and private briefing and in his case, they did not close the investigation. But nobody seems to know kind of what's happened to it, since that seems to have just disappeared. And then seemingly in a category all by himself is Senator David Perdue, the Georgia Republican who, along with La Flor is in a runoff. In Georgia and tell us about his trades writing right go her do is in a class by himself when it comes to trading. I mean, he's practically a day trader. The New York confident and expose that basically says that he had traded more than something like 2900 stocks over the course of his six years in the Senate. Don't forget. He's a former speak Theo used to run dollar general, so he's a businessman and and the stock market or something. He's good. Tuned to, but you know he was doing up to 20 trays a day. Now. He also said that this was his investment advisors and so on, but The trades were in some cases, you know, relatively suspicious. And once again, you know, it made you wonder whether the Stop Trading Act Really has any meaning whatsoever, given the nature of his trade. So what can be done since it seems like the stock act is not working? So instead of trading for for Wall Street, it's really about is really a crime and which your abusing the privilege of information. That you learn about a company. And so the stop creating actors different than that, And so, in the case of the of Congress, it really should be more like the kind of rules that journalists have to abide by. On other people have to abide by to avoid this out now. Conflict of interest, you know, even if it isn't illegal, it just it just smelled And so you know, like most journalists are not allowed to trade to trade stocks. In any sector. That is their beat, for instance, so if you're on the Armed Services committee, it would not be unreasonable to say that you cannot own stocks or trace doctors. Any defense contractor. Or if you're on the committee that oversees health and human services, you can't own stocks and pharmaceutical companies. I think that would be a much more reasonable way to, uh, try and keep Congress. From taking advantage of the insider information that they have access to. Thanks, Joe.

B. I. got the judge to sign off on it which means that agents could show probable cause at a federal crime has indeed been committed and an expectation that there is evidence of that crime on that specific phone as a former federal prosecutor told me today it's not good for you if the feds get a search warrant for your phone no it is not and I imagine internally at the justice department seizing the decision to see the cellphone of the target of an investigation needs approval at a very high level well in in the case of a sitting senator certainly this is as you said this is a very sensitive matter and actually a senior justice department official has told me that this was indeed approved at the highest levels of the justice department this also likely means that investigators had more than enough material to show probable cause because you're unlikely to take something like this to the very highest levels of the department for sign off if you think you can only squeak by on the merits interesting okay what we have been saying that the FBI has been looking into per stock transactions can you explain what exactly are they looking at so this is a an insider trading case that the FBI opened several weeks ago and it followed reports including by NPR about market transactions that Burr made earlier this year in mid February he sold stocks worth up to one point seven million dollars according to a Senate financial disclosures that was an unusually large sell off for Bure and it tracked it attention and it did so for several reasons as chairman of the Senate intelligence committee per was reportedly receiving regular briefings related to the corona virus in the run up to a selloff ProPublica has reported the birds brother in law also made significant sales around the same time and this was right before the markets tank because of the pandemic this is all raise questions of whether Burr was using non public information about the outbreak that he got as a senator when making the sales and what is senator Burr said about all of this so far so when this all for surface he denied any wrongdoing and he asked the Senate ethics committee to take a look at his financial dealings Burr was on the hill today he was asked by reporters about the search warrant and his phone he said this is part of the investigation that cooperating and that everybody should just let this all play out at the same time he did announce that he's stepping aside as chairman of the Senate intelligence committee that's a powerful position in charge of the panel that conducts oversight of the intelligence community including parts of the FBI that work on national security here's a bit of what percent as to why stepping back this is a distraction to the hard work of the committee and members and I think the security of the country's two important have a distraction but to be clear this isn't just about per I mean other senators have also come under scrutiny right like investigators are also looking into stock sales by Kelli Leffler of Republican from Georgia and Dianne Feinstein a California Democrat any updates on those fronts well there are those two lawmakers did make cells that have attracted scrutiny a spokesman for Feinstein says the FBI contacted her last month she answered questions they have now moved on as for Leffler spokesperson declined today to say whether she talk with our investigators but said she had received a warrant that is NPR's Ryan Lucas thank you Ryan thank you even as states across the country emerge from locked down the economy continues to crater the labor department says nearly three million more Americans filed for unemployment last week some thirty six million have filed claims since the pandemic triggered widespread lockdowns back in the middle of March and your chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley joins me for more this sounds like your phone is weighing in there I mean you know we might have thought we might have hoped the job market would have hit bottom by now but there's still another three million filing for for unemployment what is happening here in the pace of job cuts has been slowing down but not by much forecasters expected to see a sharper drop in unemployment claims last week that figure you mention almost three million was down only a little bit from the week before and the previous week's figures were actually revised upwards a little bit so we continue to see really widespread job cuts eight full weeks after the stay at home orders took effect as we know filing for unemployment benefits and actually getting unemployment benefits are not the same thing are people still getting busy signals on all these error messages when they go into government websites there are certainly still challenges for people seeking benefits but the additional money authorized by Congress is starting to find its way into people's pocketbooks remember lawmakers okayed an extra six hundred dollars.

"This morning to okay so real quick if you are interested in our state planning seminars couple weeks from today next week we're gonna be doing an attorney round table so we can answer any estate planning questions but we like to talk about things and even though they might not be a safe place like Microsoft Japan created a three day work three day weekends so a four day work week and it said that they boosted worker productivity by forty percent there's a lot of people trying this this whole nine to five Monday through Friday people are trying you know something new to give a little bit more I guess work life balance and it might be working a forty work week ten hours a day in any of the three day weekend this allows people to get a little bit more out of there we can and not dread 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 there so all right last what I want to talk about today was a convicted rapist was mistakenly free from Georgia state prison what a blunder that was absolute blunder so he was a thirty one year old prisoner named Tony Mooney is Mendez was accidentally released from a prison in Georgia a couple of weeks ago are we can go and he'll walk leave was captured almost immediately you know what we have to talk about this on the other side a break too this is a lawyer blue ginger we have to go to our last commercial break I am going to finish up on this convicted rapist who is accidentally released and we're gonna talk about this in just a couple of minutes we'll see you then seven sixty you need to need is left lane blocked on I. five south bound at Santa Fe drive stopping go right from

I don't do drugs. I don't do any of that stuff. Never did by the way. I think I'm the only human being on the face earth me and my wife Julie who've never smoked pot. I have never smoked pot. Mr producer. Didn't even try their that, by the way. They're absolutely silent. They don't want to say anything rich. I should say not a word. I won't ask you rich. Because I assume most people have I have never I can't stand the smell of it. And I can't stand the smell of cigarettes. My dad was chain smoke until he was about forty five. But it's just not me. It is it's disgusting. Hi, what's your problem? Get outta my face. Rosemary Cary, North Carolina. The Mark Levin app. Go. Hi, mark. Hey, I just have to say I never smoked either. And really have too much respect from my body and from my brain. So I'm I in your club. But the reason I'm calling every pothead in the world's going to call screen them out as to close green all ahead. The reason I'm calling is because I live in North Carolina. I just want to tell you and everybody out there. How is actually disgusted myself? My husband my family. My neighbors, my coworkers are with our Senator Richard Burr, and and the use of his position that he took to subpoena, Donald Trump junior. Again, you know, the good voters of North Carolina. Hey, his the left's useful idiot. Go right ahead. Person has done more in two years the discount than Richard Burke was for the nation and for north Carolinians in over time that he was there, but you know, the voters of North Carolina this man to Washington to represent us to do good things for this country and to protect this nation from real threats outside and inside on nation, and and he apparently has chosen since he's decided not to run again. But it's more interest is personal interest to act as a pass for the Democrats now and to play up to the liberal media and the power hungry Democrats who maybe we'll get him his next job, quote unquote, after he leaves his his maybe he'll wind up like this clown. Former Representative jolly this really quite loathsome. Maybe he'll get a gig on MSL stay like all the reprobate Republicans to and there you have Joe scar. Or over there? I on. I'm not a Republican the Republican party left me. No, your intelligence, your brain cells left. You big dope. No. Reason on earth for him to do what he's doing it this time, and I wanna tell you I have not been a politically active person on a little bit older than you. And I have to politically active my entire life. I could more this year that I've done in my entire life. And today, I left messages at his office, which I've done before and never gotten a call, or of course, because he's not run again. And he he doesn't have to do constituent service. It doesn't matter anymore. But I also left a message from walk Rubio because I understand that he's backing him. And I also left a message from my other Senator Thom Tillis because I know he by the way, Tillis has a primary poem, it doesn't he? I don't know about I'm looking into this. He's he's another guys, absolutely useless. He's taking up space. Karl rove creation. Exactly. And you know what? I was very pleased to hear that lady that called you this evening who said that she was at democrat her whole life her parents because every day. My prayer every day that God will open the eyes of Americans everywhere. No matter what where where are you from originally? You're not from North Carolina from Brooklyn, New York. See I knew. Okay. All right Rosemarie. I'll tell you what hang on when my book comes out. I will send you a signed copy. So we'll get your address. So don't hang up. Thank you. Thank you. What a great call. Let's go to rob Gainesville, Florida, the great W S K Y go. Hey, mark. Thank you for taking my call. Make this quick. I have been personally been the Essien on a title war similar to the court once and something has struck me that I have not seen reporter was talking about in. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I still at one point wasn't FBI source that has been reported on all over the place. Yep. When you sign up a source, and I've had literally hundreds and hundreds of sources, there's an agreement that you that you signed that source up under everything that source tells you is going to be forthright, honest verifiable. So here's Christopher Steele who under deposition at least overseas admitted his stuff is on verified. You've got FBI agents admit admit their stuff as unverified that he was unverified and. You've got essentially a process crime because whether he's a source or a citizen or anybody else if you say you're saying why isn't he being charged? Not only why does he not being charged under US code for lung. But also as a source provided false information unverified information as a source to the FBI. There's a double whammy there. You're right. I I look at the situation. I say, hey, put my investigator had on with GPS and everybody else keeps on continuing to skate no-one can seem to touch them their lawn. Go after the source the sources, Christopher Steele. Hold him accountable in dight him under one charge or the other. Maximum penalty squeeze him. So you can start going after everybody else in the chips will fall here. Making a great plan. You know, what I've always found a lot of common sense with the local cops local detectives at actually have to handle crimes, and they know how to actually. Implement that process. A very effective way. I like, your ideas. All right. Thank you very much. Thank you take care of yourself. We'll be right back. Six ten WTVN.
