Here's the insider trading indictment against Chris Collins (NY-24), Trump's first supporter in Congress. He's a goner.…
Collins and a bunch of people in his circle were big investors in an Australian biotech company. They all dumped stock after he tipped them off to a bad clinical trial result.
Collins's son and his son's father-in-law were both indicted along with him. His daughter-in-law and a bunch of others are listed as co-conspirators. They've got texts and cooperating witnesses.
If you're keeping score at home, Collins's #NY27 is a rural district east of Buffalo. Trump won it 60-35, and Collins was expected to be re-elected in a walk this November.
Collins's statement on the indictment notes that he didn't trade any stock himself. (As the indictment points out, his stock was held in Australia, where trading was already halted when he got the insider info.)…
(In the first tweet in the thread I mistyped Collins's district. It's #NY27, not 24.)
Oh, and here's Collins's #NY27 Democratic challenger, @Nate_McMurray, whose day just got very very interesting.
Holy crap. @Nate_McMurray is competing in the demolition derby at the Erie County Fair later this month. I've been to that derby like four times.
