(Tea Party PAC) – The race to be named as presumed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s VP pick is heating up as the campaign continues to delay actually picking one of the several women on the shortlist.
Amazingly, former Obama national security advisor Susan Rice, who, like Biden, played a key role on the Obamagate scandal during the 2016 election, is pretty high up there.
Can you imagine what it would be like campaigning two members of a former Presidental administration who were both involved in campaign interference aimed at preventing the man they’re running against from winning?
2020 is a hell of a year.
Now, Rice has made an interesting investment move as she clearly preps to be named as Biden’s veep.
Former Obama national security advisor Susan Rice has sold a large chunk of her Netflix shares as speculation rises that she is a top contender to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate. Rice has served as a Netflix board member since 2018.
Rice exercised options to sell her shares at a price of $508.68, according to documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday. The Wall Street Journal estimated that Rice exercised about a quarter of her options, netting about $305,000 from the sale.
Rice’s surrogates, however, claim that this is entirely unrelated to her potential role as Biden’s running mate.
A representative for Rice told the Journal that the sale has “nothing to do” with Biden’s presidential campaign.
“Ambassador Rice’s sale of a fraction of her Netflix stock has nothing to do with V.P. speculation,” Erin Pelton, Rice’s spokeswoman, said in a statement. “She filed a stock plan pursuant to SEC regulations over three months ago.”
Netflix board members receive monthly compensation in the form of stock. Earlier this week, Rice received 125 shares at an exercise price of $498.62, according to SEC filings.
Along with Rice, other contenders for Biden’s VP slot are Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), and Rep. Val Demings (D-FL).
These ladies have presented their own challenges to the Biden campaign, but Rice is by far the most corrupt.
