Andrew Herman Quoted on Investigation of U.S. Senator's Stock Trades in Politico

"Burr's Alleged Conflicts Extend Beyond His Coronavirus-related Stock Trades"


Andrew Herman was quoted on the insider trading inquiry into Senator Richard Burr's stock trades prior to the coronavirus pandemic. Herman stated that the protections provided by the Constitution may make it difficult to investigate whether Burr engaged in insider trading. However, Burr may face other penalties relating to his stock trades. "There's no bar on the Senate Ethics Committee sanctioning him," Herman said. "But much of the damage that he will suffer will come politically."
