It’s been clear since Donald Trump installed Attorney General Bill Barr to make the Mueller investigation go away that the Department of Justice no longer has any relationship to justice, but that point was driven home once again in the insider trading case against Georgia Representative Kelly Loeffler.
Just like @realDonaldTrump, I’ve been completely and totally exonerated.

Loeffler was implicated in an insider trading scandal after dumping millions in stocks after being briefed on COVID-19. The accusations included stock trading by Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). On Wednesday, the Department of Justice announced that it would not file charges against any of the three of them, prompting Loeffler’s claim that she’s been “exonerated like Trump,” a reference to Trump escaping investigations into Russian collusion in 2016, obstruction of justice, and the extortion of the Ukrainian government that led to his impeachment.
Let’s be clear, however: Loeffler was not “exonerated.” A puppet of the Republican president’s made sure that two Republican lawmakers faced no legal action and a Democratic senator was lucky enough to be part of that group. All three, without exception for party affiliations, should have been thoroughly investigated. Just like Trump, however, they’ll be swimming in the swamp a bit longer thanks to Bill Barr.
According to The Daily Beast:
‘Loeffler has nonetheless struggled to contain the political fallout from the controversy ahead of a tough primary fight against Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA). Loeffler announced in April that she and her husband would liquidate their individual stock holdings in response to the controversy. Her campaign has since poured money into advertising campaigns pushing back on insider-trading allegations.’
Twitter was not in agreement with Loeffler’s claim. See some of their responses below:
