The FBI politely asked Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein for documents about her husband’s stock trades prior to the Coronavirus crash.
Why no pre-dawn raid?
In March, news broke that Republican senators Richard Burr, Kelly Loeffler, Ron Johnson and Jim Inhofe sold significant stock shares following a January 24th meeting on the Coronavirus threat.
As predicted, it wasn’t just Republicans.
Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein of California was also connected to suspicious stock trades.
Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum sold his shares in Allogene Therapeutics Inc, a biotech company, and made between $1.5 million and $6 million before the Coronavirus stock market spiral.
Here’s a sale about the same time by Sen. Dianne Feinstein D-CA. In terms of price, Allogene Therapeutics was around $22/share for that sale. It’s now $20.29/share. pic.twitter.com/FIEjfKlTLe

According to Feinstein’s spox, the Democrat Senator voluntarily turned over documents to the FBI and answered questions about her husband’s stock transactions.
FBI asks Feinstein for documents about her husband’s stock trades. “Senator Feinstein was asked some basic questions by law enforcement about her husband’s stock transactions, as I think all offices in the initial story were,” spox says

Feinstein claims she had nothing to do with her husband’s stock trades.
