Pelosi, After Making Millions, is Now Open to Stricter Trading Laws

Over the last two years, House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) and her husband have made a small fortune.

They have reportedly made somewhere in the range of $30 million on tech companies where Pelosi provides oversight.

At one point, the Pelosi’s raked in about $6 million in two weeks.

While Pelosi was initially hesitant to crack down on stock trades among congressional members, she is now willing to listen after significant pushback from voters and her fellow Democrats.

Maybe…

Pelosi is now willing to consider more oversight but not completely end congressional trading.

She stated, “I do come down always in favor of trusting our members. If the impression that is given by some that somebody is doing insider trading, that’s a Justice Department issue and that has no place in any of this.

“To give a blanket attitude of ‘We can’t do this and we can’t do,’ because we can’t be trusted, I just don’t buy into that. But if members want to do that, I’m okay with that.”

Honestly, what does she care at this point, she is worth more than $100 million and has one foot in the grave.

This will, however, be difficult legislation to pass because there are just as many insider traders in the GOP as there are in the Democrat Party.

If you don’t believe me, start looking at the financial statements of our members of Congress and check out their investment holdings.

There are far more millionaires than not in Congress, some of them after only a few years.

I don’t care what anyone says, as a collective group, nobody is right that often, especially when you consider the growth of their finances.

Sadly, and I will never be convinced otherwise, the majority of Congress did not run to serve We the People.

They ran because they knew it was the fastest possible way to get rich.

Do you think most of our members of Congress are corrupt and exploiting their positions or do you think they are good people?

  1. Congress is nothing more than a den of thieves. General George Patton said it best, Politicians are the lowest form of life on earth. Liberal Democrats are the lowest form of Politicians. One only has to look at DC today to see this is true.

  2. Then why do they spend millions of dollars for a $165,000 dollar a year job?
    Now we the people see why,
    Insider Tradeing =
    Legalized Money Laundry.

  3. STOP THEIR ABILITY TO TRADE ALTOGETHER. MAYBE WE WILL START GETTING PEOPLE THAT WANT TO ACTUALLY SERVE THE UNITED STATES NOT GREEDY SLIMEBALLS LOOKING TO GET RICH QUICK. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

  4. Enough is Enough is right ! This get rich quick is why they want to get re- elected every year ! They not only get richer but more powerful !! They are corrupt and do not give a damn about We The People !! All they care about is themselves and their continued power and dirty money making schemes ! Time to pay the price for all their crimes against The American People ! We Are Awake and Justice is coming for those Who have tried to Destroy Our Nation!!🙏🏻❤️🇺🇸

  5. If its against the Law, then if she took an oath to up hold the Law— I think that is talking out of both sides of your mouth and you either need to quit doing that or resign. There should be some penalty for what she has continued to do time and again. She is too much like Obama. The Laws are for thee and no me. Democrats need to come clean and get over it. They took and Oath when they too office, so why are they still going to do what they please and thumb their noses at the little people.

  6. If they broke the laws they need to be prosecuted. There no better than any other American tax payers. It’s time the laws are the same for everyone.

  7. Serving in government was always supposed to be a civil service job. Over the years they voted themselves raises, they don’t live under social security like we do, and they have all gotten rich by insider trading! They should all be prosecuted and have their holdings stripped and returned to the American People they stole it from! Maybe it would lower the deficit they created! One Early President said, “ If a member of Congress is rich it is because they are stealing from the People! Time to stop this and Drain the Swamp!

  8. Time for Full Transparency, Full Accountability, and to return Power to the People! We, The American People, deserve Honest Representation! We Elected them with their Promise to Uphold our Laws and Our Constitution! If they can’t do that with the Honesty we entrusted them with, then they should be removed from office! Immediately! Time to hire Joe The Plumber, Jack the Carpenter, and Tom the Electrical Guy! Put the People back in the business of running the government! Put Common Sense back in charge! House, Feed, and Support Americans before trying to take care of the rest of the World! Physician Heal Thyself! Then God will Bless America Again!

  9. These politicians should be made to donate all these ILLEGAL profits to CHARITY and not be able to take it as a tax break!!!

  10. THERE SHOULD BE THE SAME FOR CONGRESS AS IT FOR THE PRESIDENT. TRUMP HAD TO GIVE UP HIS COMPANIES SO SHOULD CONGRESS ON ANYTHING THAT WOULD BRING IN WEALTH.

  11. The majority of them are criminals who can only be trusted to act in their own interests. I believe that once a person enters into political office all stock trading on their part must be suspended for as long as they remain in office. All personal business ventures must be suspended if the business is affiliated with any government agency. Can anyone say “conflict of interest”?. Furthermore they must publish their personal finacials quarterly and show no more personal income profit than the equivalent of their government salary including the costs of Congressional perks. They’re supposed to be PUBLIC servants, not PERSONAL servants.

  12. Unfortunately, it seems our elected officials are probably good people when they first run for office. But let them be elected, and the D.C. corruptive forces have swayed some to forget and drop that good-ness when it means they can enrich their private coffers! Anyone suspected of insider trading should most definitely be investigated THOROUGHLY and punished accordingly. That means from the Oval Office and on down the line! Remember, NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!

  13. If they were honest people we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Theyve all made enough to buy their way out, and if their all doing this, and know its against the law then accountability is necessary, cuz we know their not getting anything else done!

  14. I resent all this corruption. Where is the honor and example to show our children. Pelose’ son,Clinton (him and her), Biden, and son should have to return what they stole and then rot in jail. Their children followed their examples, except for Clinton’s daughter.

    stole and rot in jail. The people have raised their children’s by their examples and it shows
