I have seen the acts of Congress members on TV which looks to me to be insider trading of securities that are at least unethical. Is there investigations into these activities or are they being overlooked because they are congress members. In particular Pelosi and Boehner.

I now see such activites will be made illegal by changes in the law. Was Congress exempt from the original law? Why not enforce the original law on congress? To indicate the law needs amended seems to be an underhanded way to say congresspersons did nothing wrong.
