AOC Slams Richard Burr For Using Coronavirus To Make Millions: ‘He Needs To Resign!’

Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) had a few words of criticism for Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who currently sits as the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Ocasio-Cortez called for the resignation of Burr after it was reported that he dumped $1.6 million in stock after receiving private briefings on the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.

“As Intel chairman, Sen. Burr got private briefings about Coronavirus weeks ago,” AOC posted on Twitter.

“Burr knew how bad it would be. He told the truth to his wealthy donors, while assuring the public that we were fine,” she explained. “THEN he sold off $1.6 million in stock before the fall.”

“He needs to resign,” Ocasio-Cortez declared.
