Senator David Perdue (R-GA.) has been cleared of wrongdoing after three separate investigations into his stock trades.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
The Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, and Senate Ethics Committee concluded over the summer that Perdue engaged in no wrongdoing with his stock purchases and sell-offs earlier this year, which drew charges he profited from insider information about the pandemic.
A Perdue official told the Washington Free Beacon the probes into Perdue occurred after investigators looked into similar stock transactions by Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R., Ga.), Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), Sen. Richard Burr (R., N.C.), and other lawmakers.
Perdue’s opponent Jon Ossoff and Democratic allies have made Perdue’s trades a centerpiece of their attacks. One Ossoff ad implied Perdue attended a private Jan. 24 Senate briefing on coronavirus and then “lined his own pockets,” although Perdue was not present at that briefing. Another ad from the Democrat-aligned Senate Majority PAC called Perdue “sleazy.” Ossoff, who runs an investigative journalism documentary company based in London, often cites his battles against corruption as a selling point for his campaign.
Critics pointed to Perdue’s purchase of stock in a chemical company that supplies personal protective equipment and his sale of casino stock earlier this year. However, he also sold stock in the grocery store Kroger and invested in the clothing store Urban Outfitters shortly before it closed, both moves that contradict charges he used the pandemic to his advantage, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported. Perdue’s team said he cooperated fully with investigations into his finances and all of his stock trades were handled by third-party advisers.
A new ad will air from Perdue slamming Ossoff and Senator Chuck Schumer for “lying.”
The Perdue campaign also slammed Ossoff for making movies for Al-Jazeera and other foreign based companies.

I’m sure this will be the lead story in tomorrow’s NYT. Hahahaha!
If democrats couldn’t lie, cheat, extort or steal they couldn’t exist. They are more like a Satanic Cult than a Political Party. Satan must be so proud…
That’s why I call them demoncraps!
And that’s why i call them demo-Constitution-commiecrats!
I’m sure the devil is smiling his horrible smile~~ especially when he looks upon his #1 cohort~~ Nanzi the Notzee.
Many christians believe. We are truly fighting evil. Many phrophets saw Trump. Being elected even before he entered presidental. Race
The Senator could not be found guilty of misdoing, innocent or guilty, because some Democrats were found innocent of the same thing. Wouldn’t look to good for the Dems if only Republicans were found guilty.
That’s good news. While Democraps get away with the worst of crimes……
Oh Boy, now the Defocrats have to find new crap to throw against the wall
What gets thrown does not matter. What sticks does.
The democrat party is the party of absolute evil and this year we need to get out and vote them back into the stone age,make them lose by such a wide margin that they just give up!
They’ll never give up to be sure but if we win by a large margin it will be harder to ignore for them! The liars and cheats will try to find a way to overturn but we will stand in their way!!
Did they fully investigate the DemocRATS involved in this stock trade deal? How do you think they become so rich?
No surprise their. Liberals don’t know how to do anything but lie, even when there is no reason to.
Another liberal smear tactic gone gad.
