Democratic lawmakers have accused the president of tipping off investors after they say he potentially leaked important data ahead of the monthly jobs report.
Now they're calling on regulators to investigate what they call a violation of federal guidelines.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., announced on Friday that she and two fellow senators, Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Michael Bennet, D-Colo., had sent a letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission concerning what they said were Trumps reckless comments on market-moving economic data prior to their public release.

Really upsets these 3 Stooges that President Trump has given new life to our dead democrat economy.
I look forward to group hangings and mass arrests of these America hating rodents.
How can a public “leak” be advantageous to anyone?
Investors cannot gain any edge if the information is public.
Just an attemp to change the news cycle about leaking
Trump did NOT release “data”, in that he didn’t cite numbers.
He indicated it was good news and the pre-market indicators didn’t move.
BUT, since Liawatha has no new ideas or any defense for her lies, she finds something to shriek about.
He cannot leak. He is the final Authority on whether or not something is classified.
Hilarious! Someone made a video of clips of Obama doing the same thing more than once. The democrats are desperate! LOL
She needs the man juice.
Even if he released numbers, it is not a crime. There is no federal information that he is not allowed to release on his time schedule
In that order?
These ‘politicians’, who were doing ‘insider trading’, claimed Martha Stewart was using ‘insider’ info to profit on her stock investments. After that was successful in keeping the public from finding out that they were doing insider trading, they then changed to law to make it legal for THEM to do it.
Why is the President ‘excluded’ from this law ?
Those three stooges are driving away voters with stunts like this (I believe they are dimly aware of that reality).
They don’t care about the voters, Liawatha must be nominated! It’s the DNC strategy. Find some corrupt, soulless imbecile to run as a womyn for prez, and pick as vp, an equally corrupt psychobitch Lesbian quadgender!
When the election is stolen, the will play the misogynistic patriarchal white man’s world must be utterly destroyed! The Lefties have been given a perfect opportunity to create anarchy...
Could the headline be more confusing?
Read the Constitution, Left swine. The executive function is vested in the President alone. Trump can release whatever he wants.
These communists are desperate. They are in full rout!!
Are there any guidelines for insider trading by members of congress...
One of the fringe benefits of Congress is the ability to invest in the market based on what would be considered insider knowledge for everyone else. It’s one way they amass millions while in office.
Did President Trump accidentally (or purposely) disturb this?
i’m going out on the limb here, but, I’d say Liz Warren’s husband is either impotent and never gives her what she needs, or he has a mistress. Liz is just an angry woman
