LAS VEGAS (AP) — Financial disclosure forms show a trust belonging to U.S. Rep. Susie Lee of Nevada and her husband made advantageous stock trades in January, selling natural gas shares and purchasing grocery shares as members of Congress received briefings on the coronavirus pandemic.

Lee’s congressional office told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the trust is managed by a third-party investor and the Democratic congresswoman did not direct the investor to make any transactions during that time.

The congresswoman also says she did not attend the early House briefing on the pandemic made at the time of the stock transactions.
