Sen. Burr Requests Ethics Committee Review of His Stock Sales

Friday, 20 March 2020 11:15 AM

U.S. Republican Sen. Richard Burr said Friday he relied solely on news reports to guide decisions on stock sales, but is asking the Senate Ethics Committee to review his transactions because of reports he and other senators sold off shares after being briefed on the risks of the coronavirus crisis.

"I relied solely on public news reports to guide my decision regarding the sale of stocks on February 13," Burr said on Twitter, citing CNBC's daily health and science reporting out of Asia at the time." He said he has asked the Senate Ethics Committee to open a review of the matter.

Senators Dianne Feinstein and James Inhofe also said they had no input on their reported financial transactions.
