Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein and GOP Senators Kelly Loeffler and James Inhofe have been notified that the Justice Department is no longer looking into their family stock sales after a private briefing early in the coronavirus crisis.
Republican Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina is still the subject of a related investigation, Dow Jones reported earlier. He has temporarily stepped down as Intelligence Committee chairman amid the probe into whether he sold stocks as a result of secret briefings on the threat of the coronavirus pandemic.
Feinstein of California was informed the inquiry is over, said a person familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Her office confirmed earlier this month that she answered questions from the FBI about her husband’s stock transactions.
Feinstein had previously said she didn’t attend a Jan. 24 briefing on the coronavirus and has said her own assets were held in blind trust.
