The wealth of the Pelosi family has been under scrutiny lately, after Nancy’s husband just happened to buy millions in computer chip stock shortly before a House vote that would give the industry billions.
Pelosi was asked about it this week and naturally, she denied the whole thing.
She also couldn’t wait to run off stage after answering the question.
Pelosi: Husband Never Bought Stock Based on Information From Her
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., says her husband has never made a stock purchase or sale based on information received from her.
“No, absolutely not,” she said Thursday when asked by a reporter.
Paul Pelosi in June purchased between $1 million and $5 million of stock in Nvidia, a semiconductor company, which is bound to benefit from legislation that would boost semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S.
The Senate is expected to meet this week to vote on a $52 billion subsidy to the industry as part of a bill that aims to provide grants, tax credits and other incentives for companies to manufacture semiconductors in the U.S.
“The speaker does not own any stocks,” Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, said in a statement to Fox about the stock purchase on Monday. “As you can see from the required disclosures, with which the speaker fully cooperates, these transactions are marked ‘SP’ for spouse. The speaker has no prior knowledge or subsequent involvement in any transactions.”
Pelosi in 2021 publicly opposed banning members of Congress and their families from trading stocks.

Lots of people just don’t believe her.
Nancy Pelosi is getting away with insider trading in broad daylight. America does not have a functioning press.

Are we supposed to believe it’s all just a coincidence?
