New York Republican congressman indicted on insider trading charges

Congressman Chris Collins Arrested For Insider Trading

Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., has been arrested on insider trading charges lodged by the Justice Department, law enforcement officials said Wednesday morning.

The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY scheduled a news conference to announce insider trading charges against Christopher Collins, a Republican Congressman representing the 27th District of NY, his son Cameron Collins, and Stephen Zarsky, the father of Cameron Collins's fiancée.

"Many Republican leaders are struggling to come to terms with Donald Trump as their party's nominee: Some are declining to immediately endorse him, while others say outright that they won't support him and are searching for a third-party alternative to back this fall", RealClearPolitics wrote in the piece.

The House Ethics Committee also opened an investigation into Collins for the stock discussion last October. We are confident he will be completely vindicated and exonerated. When the drug trials failed, the public announcement caused the stock price of Innate to plunge 92 percent.

Subscription growth for ESPN+, a pay streaming service launched in April, is "exceeding our expectations", Iger said. Now, thanks to this report, we know that from Captain Marvel on, they will be heading to Disney's own platform.

All three defendants were in federal custody Wednesday and were expected to make their initial court appearance in the afternoon.

A news conference to detail the charge is scheduled for noon in Manhattan.

Prosecutors allege that Collins passed along secrets to his son, Cameron, in June 2017.

His son then traded on that inside information and passed it to Zarsky, along with numerous unnamed co-conspirators, "so that they could utilize the information for the same goal", according to the indictment.
