Chris Collins didn’t even bother trying to cover his tracks. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss.
“A New York Republican Congress member who bragged about turning his friends and acquaintances into millionaires — and was one of President Trump’s earliest and biggest supporters — was just arrested and charged with insider trading.
Rep. Chris Collins, along with his son Cameron Collins and the father of his son’s fiancée, Stephen Zarsky, was arrested by FBI agents early Wednesday morning, according to NBC News. The case is centered on the Australia-based pharmaceutical company Innate Immunotherapeutics, a company in which Collins is currently the No. 2 shareholder. At one point, he held more than $45 million in Innate stock.
According to the federal government’s indictment, Collins shared non-public information about Innate — specifically, about negative results resulting from Innate’s clinical trials — with his son, who then passed that information along to Zarsky. The federal government alleges that by doing so, Collins, his son, and Zarsky were able to avoid nearly $800,000 in potential losses.”*
