Bice: U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson defends Pacur sale amid accusations of insider trading by other GOP senators


With two of his GOP colleagues coming under fire for selling stock after getting a security briefing on the coronavirus, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson on Friday defended selling his stake in his family's privately held company earlier this month.

Johnson said the deal had been in the works since 2018, long before the current global pandemic.

"Obviously, this had nothing to do with the coronavirus," Johnson said via text regarding the sale.

Johnson just disclosed on his official statement of economic interest that he made between $5 million and $25 million on the March 2 sale of his share of Pacur LLC, an Oshkosh-based supplier of specialty plastic packaging materials. Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, headed the company before he was elected to the Senate in 2010.

None of them will go to prison. That is for sure.

They will not be prosecuted too. That is only for the "little people".

Hear me out.

This knowledge of the virus spreading was already public knowledge when they had a 'secret meeting'. I know a ton of people that dumped stocks before the crash because of this public knowledge. In fact, this is most likely why everything has been dumping, not because some congressmen sold off stock...

While I think our congressmen do some really shady stuff, IMHO this is one of the newest "MSM Talking points" to stir up trouble and get everyone worked up over.

Do the optics look good? Absolutely not. But I'm not sure this is a big of a deal as the MSM is making it to be. Remember the whole getting people stirred up because of using "Chinese Virus" thing isn't sticking well, they are just trying to make more division.

If they don't go to prison for 20 years (maximum time) then our system needs to be repealed by The People and a new one put in place.

It is time these people learn a lesson.

Wuhan was locked down on 1/23

Lunar new year ended 2/8

The Dow peaked on 2/12 then went sideways until 2/19 then down from there.

2/19 = First day of Pisces.

What happened?

Wuhan lock down = Game over for the expansion of the system from the march 2009 bottom.

2/12 the people that know what is going on began shorting the market.

2/12 to 2/19 was a distribution.

A sideways movement where the people that know what is going on dump all their soon to be worthless crap into the hands of the people with no clue or bagholders.

Good article here- Congress got rid of the Stock Act

[link to investmentu.com (secure)]

But then, just a year after the STOCK Act was passed, Congress amended it in a quick procedural vote. Surprise, surprise – it got rid of the online disclosure requirement.

Today, in order to see the inner workings of your representative’s portfolio, you have to go down to the basement of the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, D.C., and ask for a printed file.

Technically, that file in a damp D.C. basement still constitutes a public disclosure. Thus, your congressman’s market-beating transactions are technically not insider trading.

Unless you live near the Cannon House building, there’s no easy way to access congressional insider trading data. But anyone with an internet connection can find the next best thing.
