SECRET Recording Exposes Coronavirus Lie by Senator

This right-wing senator was caught in a HUGE coronavirus lie! Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee warned a small group of well-connected constituents three weeks ago to prepare for dire economic and societal effects of the coronavirus, according to a secret recording obtained by NPR.

The remarks from U.S. Sen. Richard Burr were starker than any he had delivered in more public forums.

On Feb. 27, when the United States had 15 confirmed cases of COVID-19, President Trump was tamping down fears and suggesting that the virus could be seasonal.

“It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle. It will disappear,” the president said then …

What A Coincidence: GOP Senator Dumped Up To $1.5m In Stock While Downplaying Pandemic

Senate Intelligence Committee chair and Senator Richard Burr (Republican-North Carolina) sold off a load of stock recently. …

Burr’s move came just a few weeks before telling wealthy constituents in private that the global spread of the coronavirus would be “akin to the 1918 pandemic.’

It was also while he was in a position to receive briefings from intelligence agencies on the matter.

On Feb. 7, 2020, Burr co-authored an op-ed for Fox News saying the U.S. was “better prepared than ever before” for emerging public health threats like the coronavirus.

“We are not only ready to face the coronavirus today but new public health threats in the future.” Sen. Richard Burr Op-Ed, Fox News

Burr’s stocks included $150,000 in shares of Wyndham Hotels and Resorts and $100,000 in shares of hospitality chain Extended Stay America.

Both companies have suffered even more catastrophic losses.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Slams Richard Burr For Using Coronavirus To Make Millions: ‘He Needs To Resign!’

So, this senator of Donalds Trump’s Republican party is a coronavirus profiteer.

Unfortunately, there are some more coronavirus profiteers.

Like bosses of car factories profiteering from workers working in factory halls where they may get contaminated with coronavirus. Like bosses in the so-called defence war industry profiteering from workers working in factory halls where they may get contaminated with coronavirus. Getting contaminated while making weapons for wars, eg, the genocidal war of the Saudi regime on the people of Yemen.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

Doctors are suing French Prime Minister and Health Minister

Three doctors have filed a complaint against French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe and former Health Minister Agnès Buzyn. They believe that they were aware of the severity of the corona pandemic, but did not warn about it and did not take measures in time.

Philippe and Buzyn are charged with “voluntarily refraining from adopting or imposing measures, which could help combat a disaster likely to pose a safety hazard”. This may get a prison sentence of up to 2 years in France and a fine of 30,000 euros.

The complaint will be handled by the Court of Justice of the Republic. It is not known when the verdict will be.
