Loeffler: Criticism Of My Insider Trading Is “Socialist”

The Daily Beast reports:

Embattled Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) waved off the firestorm of controversy over stock trades she made following Senate coronavirus briefings, telling Fox News on Friday that the criticism she’s received is nothing more than a “socialist attack.”

Noting that Loeffler had appeared on their program last month to deny any wrongdoing, America’s Newsroom co-anchor Sandra Smith asked Loeffler whether she and her husband had gone through with liquidating those stocks.

“Yes, and I’ve been very open about addressing all those questions,” the Georgia lawmaker and wealthy ex-CEO replied. “This is a political attack that is designed to distract from the issue at hand and to use this outbreak to play politics.”
