COUNTDOWN: 22 Days Until Daines Must File Financial Disclosures
Has Daines Continued Trading Patterns?
Helena, MT – Today marks 22 days until Senator Steve Daines must file his 2019 personal financial disclosures to the public. Previous financial disclosures have shown that Daines has traded mutual funds around votes and events that could benefit his financial portfolio. Has this pattern continued?
In 2017, during the Senate’s vote to begin debate on its Affordable Care Act repeal bill, Daines made large investments in a health care fund. In 2018, he purchased and sold large stakes in three mutual funds with significant investments in Chinese companies around developments in U.S.- China trade negotiations.
With less than a month to go until Daines’ 2019 disclosures are filed, Montanans are watching closely to see if his trading patterns have continued.
“Steve Daines has shown a pattern of trading around events that could benefit his financial portfolio – and we’re going to find out what Daines has been up to in 22 days,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Montanans deserve a Senator who puts them first, not corporate special interests.”
