Warren and Wyden Call for Insider Trading Probe After Trump's "Reckless" Jobs Report Tweet

Warren and Wyden Call for Insider Trading Probe After Trump's "Reckless" Jobs Report Tweet

Jake Johnson, staff writer

After President Donald Trump's tweet last week touting the May jobs report before it was officially unveiled—triggering speculation that he may have tipped off his rich pals about strong employment numbers—three Democratic senators on Friday demanded an investigation into whether any of Trump's "Wall Street cronies" obtained the numbers in advance and used them for personal enrichment.

Let’s be honest, the biggest bunch of inside traders on the planet walk the halls of Congress. How else can so many politicians go into “government service” in one of the most expensive cities in the country, maintain two residences, and retire as multi-millionaires? Other than John Kerry, of course, who got there there old fashioned way, by marrying money.

No, not pure animal cunning; these are Big city New York values living in sky scrapers and ripping people off while their not looking and have’n fun at the rodeo. Nothing’s changed. New York isn’t the richest city on Earth for nothing.

Another plop on the pile of manure that nobody will do anything about. It stinks to high hell, but who cares, right? It’s no worse than anything else that freak has done, or what the other creeps running the government and MIC have been doing.

AND where the Frell are trumps tax returns!? They are critical for investigators to examine to connect the dots of his web of crimes!

The smoking guns that will be discovered there, the connections, the cronyism, the hidden profits, the violations of the Emoluments Clause, from policy decisions!! made by the ginger pig! A “probing” isn’t anywhere near enough for the swine, he should have his rotten greedy self marched to the gallows for a neck-stretching for all the crimes and destruction he has caused!

The data on this shows the effects of President Trump’s tweet and it did indeed appear to move the markets. His Tweet came at 7:21 a.m. Eastern time - for the hour and a half before the Tweet indices for stocks, bonds, and the U.S. dollar were all flat. Then immediately after the Tweet the markets moved upward. See the graph at https://www.theatlas.com/charts/BJ7SqTCkm

I read that Dump is worth 3.15 billion dollars, chicken feed in his view. Isn’t that over three thousand million dollars? What a disgusting fat greedy pig!

You can add John McCain to that statement about Kerry.

It would take a hundred feet of rope to make a noose big enough to fit around that fat neck.

Yes indeed! Have we not reached the breaking point yet? Not one faction or person is willing to do what is necessary to jail these murderers. Not one! Insider trading? Of course! No one will do a damn thing about it. Warren will do nothing as usual. The people and journalists have become so pathetic with comments, they never mention any solutions. What’s it gonna take for people to rise up? Seems we’ve already lost…

A President’s duty is to the people and running the country properly, not profit off of his bullshit oath to hold this position and get richer. He should have been thrown out from day 1 when the attacks against us started. We sat back and did nothing. Now we’re screwed. Don’t count on Mueller either.

And the people sit back and do nothing after over a year of this bull crap. WE forgot how to fight back.

“President Trump recklessly violated federal rules and years of precedent by telegraphing financial data that has the power to move our markets,” Warren said in a statement released alongside the new letter. “The Trump administration is swarming with people who have secret financial holdings and conflicts of interest a mile long.”
So you find something wrong? What exactly are you folks going to do about it? The age old slap on the wrist to the Dumpster and his goons. The same ol, same ol. Get Real! You people never do anything to hurt the wealthy!

We’re all powerless peons until we decide it’s time for the guillotines to make a return.

Pwr 2 the POWERFUL peons!
GUILLOTINE COMPLACENCY NOW!

Funny how Warren didn’t seem to have a problem when Hillary and Bill were making money hand over fist when she was Secretary of State, isn’t it? Hillary’s pay to play went against the emoluments clause, but no one said a word about it.

Just more angry fluff from Warren. Has anything come from her fiery speeches to the banks? Not that I’m aware of, but she sure sounds good.

Thank you for the welcome laugh in these dark times! We peons are being ‘hacked’ on all sides – how fitting it would be to return the hacking to our government terrorists and their corporate whores!

Hypocrites (Warren, Wyden, et al).
