Fox News’ Jesse Watters Investigates Massive Gains in Pelosi Wealth

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her husband, Paul, have amassed a fortune during her time in office.

In 2018, with a net worth of almost $115 million, Pelosi was already among the wealthiest members of Congress.

With a net worth now exceeding $300 million, Fox News’ Jesse Watters takes a hard look at the “success” of the Pelosi family investments.

Easily Corrupted

I am not now, nor have I ever been in favor of members of Congress being able to invest in the market.

An argument could be made to allow them to invest in mutual funds, but allowing members of Congress, their spouses, or members of their immediate family to invest in specific companies opens up the political world to corruption.

To make my point, I have often pointed at Pelosi and her husband Paul, who seems to be the most amazing investor that has ever walked the planet.

When Paul Pelosi makes a move, more often than, it pays off and it pays off big.

In my opinion, this is not luck or amazing research, but dinner and pillow talk with his wife.

Nancy has always claimed her husband does his own thing, yet his investments regularly reflect companies doing business with the government as well as industries that benefit from legislation being passed.

He always seems to invest at just the right time, getting in a few weeks before a major announcement, then he watches his money grow.

Over the last few years, the Pelosi’s have almost tripled their net worth.

Watters stated, “The couple has timed the market perfectly over the years, while Nancy’s been a Washington insider. Real estate, stocks, the Pelosis always know what the right investment is.”

Watters goes on to explain a typical Pelosi scam, stating, “In 2007, Visa worried the new Democrat Congress would target their swipe fees, costing them billions. So they hired a team of lobbyists who descended on Pelosis.

“Visa’s CEO personally met with her. She got donations from them. One of his advisers left and became a visa lobbyist himself.

“Suddenly, Paul Pelosi got a phone call from his broker. He was in luck. Paul was offered a prescreened invite to get in early on Visa’s $18 billion IPO. Did Nancy and her husband hesitate?

“No, they bought between $1 million and $5 million worth of Visa stock. But it gets better. While Pelosi was speaker, bills that would have hurt Visa’s stock price were blocked in the House. Visa shares going up over 200 percent during the time, making the Pelosis a fortune on paper.”

This has continued more recently, with Watters stating, “In January, the Pelosis got a million dollars worth of Tesla stock right before Joe Biden announced electric car incentives in June.

“The Pelosi family cashed in big time just before Congress was set to pounce on Big Tech. Mr. Pelosi exercised options on Google’s parent company, Alphabet, making an easy $5.3 million.”

Watters breaks it all down in the video below…

I have zero, and I mean ZERO doubt that Pelosi is corrupt and her husband is benefitting from insider information, only we will never be able to prove it because Pelosi is far from the only politician doing this, and the problem goes across both sides of the aisle.

Getting elected to Congress is not about serving the people of this country. It is about power and getting rich, period.

    1. Unfortunately this is the real reason why 90% get into Politics, for the money. Look at AOC, she is a nobody and when she does get voted out she will be a millionaire with life time benefits. Let me ask, what jobs could you or I get that will give a pension and benefits for working less then 10 years??

      1. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT – WE THE PEOPLE MUST DEMAND TERM LIMITS ( 2 TERMS & RECEIVE BENEFITS AGE 65 ) – JUST LIKE THE REMAINDER OF AMERICAN CITIZENS DO – IF TRUTH WERE KNOWN –
        THE POLITICIANS ALL USE INSIDE INFO TO GAIN THEIR WEALTH & IT’S CALLED CORRUPTION & IT IS AGANIST THE LAW – THAT MEAN CRIMINAL!!!!!

        1. Now, if only some District Attorney had the b*lls to bring charges against the Pisslosi’. BUT probably won’t happen unless Trump gets elected as President

  1. No doubt corruption of this type & magnitude have been in politics since the opportunities presented themselves…
    Anyone from the House to the Presidency already gets paid (to serve the people) more than the average working American..Too much , of you ask me…
    The perks alone are enough to live well…free medical , free transportation,etc…
    My question is how can the American people put a stop to this corruption..It is not enough to just ,not vote for them…

  2. So what will ever happen to these dishonest Demoncraps? More than likely they will get away with it… should round them all up put in Guantanimo and let them rot !

  3. PELOSI’S GAINS IN THE STOCK MARKET SHOULD BE RECOVERED AND USED OR THE TRILLIONS NEEDED BY HER BOSS BIDEN AND HIS HENCHMAN.

  4. THE GOAL WAS FOR THEM TO HELP THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO NEED IT AND THE TERM FOR THEIR TENURE IS NOT A LIFETIME THAT’S RESERVED GOR JUDGES ONLY HER AND HER PHILANDERING HUSBAND SHOULD BE ON JAIL THEY OBVIOUSLY CAN NOT BE TRUSTED

  5. When did politicians start getting lifetime pensions? Who started it and why? If I had a job for 10 years and then retired or was fired, I would get NOTHING. Why should they?

  6. Why don’t she get impeach arresyed for inside trading . she has done many things to arrest her. It is sad.

  7. The founding fathers made some errors, term limits is one of them. No one should ever be in DC more than 12 years except SC judges and that should be no more than 17 years. They’re never gonna impose term limits.
    As well anyone not abiding by the oath they took to uphold the Constitution should immediately be removed from the position they were voted into. Not stolen into.

  8. with pelosi, I would call this inside trading she let her husband know when to buy stocks with OUR money. sent jail all crocked democrats.

  9. How many of those in “Office” today are guilty of 5 CFR 2635.702 – “Use of Public Office for Personal Gain”; and/or 18 USC $208 – “Acts Affecting Personal Financial Gain” ?

    Where are the federal investigators?

    The underhanded, self-serving politicians need to be identified, and prosecuted!!! Examples need to be made of those who violate our laws.

    Prison sentences would go a long ways to deter this activity.

  10. Pelosi is a crook, a dirty politician, looking out for her own interests and not the interests of our country. She took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. Instead she is doing everything she can to topple our country and further advance her personal interests. She should be impeached, brought up on charges of sedition and treason against the United States. Treason is a crime punishable by the death penalty. Put her in front of a firing squad, along with every other politician who is violating his/her oath of office.

  11. This is the main reason why they loathed Trump. He wanted to bring all this dirt up along with the fake media to the public and the Dems wanted no part of it. He would ultimately upset their very expensive apple carts all the while, cleaning up this disgusting swamp so they started talking impeachment before he even took office. We all need to sit back and clearly understand what they would have done to Trump, if he did only a tenth of what this dimwit has done to our country.
