Democrats are in damage control mode.
Working with their pals in the Fake News Media, they’re trying desperately to contain the fallout from Obamagate.
But this top Democrat Senator got the worst news of her life when the FBI came knocking.
While the Fake News Media furiously reported on the FBI seizing Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr’s phone number, another side of the story was developing.
Burr is under investigation for alleged insider trading resulting from his reported $1.7 million stock selloff prior to the market’s historic 10,000 point crash.
The committee he chaired had received a classified briefing in February about the economic dangers America faced from the coronavirus.
Many believe Burr acted on the information he received in that classified briefing to sell-off his stocks, before it was too late.
But Burr isn’t the only Senator the FBI is looking into.
California Democrat Dianne Feinstein was visited by the FBI after her husband sold off between $1.5 – $6 million in stocks prior to the crash.
In addition to the FBI questioning the Senator, Feinstein had an ethics complaint lodged against her for the stock sales.
A spokesman for Dianne Feinstein says the FBI asked her “basic questions” in April about her husband's stock trades, and that she provided documents showing she had no involvement.
A spokeswoman for Kelly Loeffler said the FBI had not contacted her. https://t.co/rooGHkUoTn

Democrats were hoping to smear President Trump with news of Burr’s actions.
But their plan is backfiring as one of their most senior members is caught up in the same investigation.
Feinstein, like Burr, maintains that she did nothing wrong. But the American people aren’t going to look kindly on elected officials potentially profiting off insider information during the coronavirus pandemic.
