Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an avowed
communist, socialist ( a distinction without a difference, especially to one, like me, who followed his career) leaked information on oil traders’ positions to a WSJ reporter. The irony is that the old commie was upset about oil at $147 a barrel in 2008 but it hit below $80 today. More upsetting is that this is supposed to be confidential information – no trader wants his competitors to know what his positions are, yet Sanders released it anyway.
Here’s the Wikipedia article on Bernie. Decide for yourself who and what he is. But he does seem to have violated his oath of office and the law, as the original post said.
