Rogan Rips Into Pelosi Over Insider Trading Response
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stepped in it big time when a reporter slapped her with a question about if Congresspeople should be allowed to participate in stock trades. That's where Pelosi gets the bulk of her income, so you know she flipped out.
You could almost see the moment Pelosi realized that the question was a setup to talk about her accused insider trading. She cut it short and moved on to the next question. But like most of us, Joe Rogan wasn't ready to let it go.
After all, they threw Martha Stewert behind bars for allegedly participating in insider trading, so...
Like the rest of us, podcaster Joe organ picked up on House Speakers Nancy Pelosi's fear when a reporter asked her about members of Congress participating in insider trading. The slur-queen was quick to defend their 'right' to participate in a free market but moved on quickly before the reporter could ask about her husband's activity.
Rogan began, "Did you see Nancy Pelosi defend insider trading? … Think about how much money she’s worth. She makes like how much a year? How much does she make a year?" The group looked it up and Pelosi makes $223,000 a year.
Rogan blasted politicians for using the system to get rich after they leave office. “They make their money when they get out,” Rogan said. “What it is is [it’s] like an investment, if you get out you will have money for speaking engagements with all the companies that you helped, all the companies that you like, ‘Hey, I like you. I like you. Let’s hang out, let’s party.’ They’re like, ‘Hey, Mike. Mike the former president, we’d love to have you come speak at our conference, and we’re willing to pay you a half a million dollars.’ So this [it’s] like weird bribes.”
Rogan had one of his producers play the clip of Pelosi commenting on members of Congress trading stock, to which Rogan responded, “Have you ever seen a person look more nervous?”
“She’s giving this like very simplistic, almost vague answer,” he continued. “Because should you be allowed to participate in the stock market when you’re influencing the direction of the stock or when you know which direction something’s going to go in? Or when you’re going to pass a law that’s going to benefit these businesses, that’s going to force the stock to go up, and you know that, so you invest a sh*t ton of money before it happens? That seems like a problem. That seems like it’s a problem. Now why is that not a problem? Because we’re f***ing co-opted.”
You can freely view Pelosi's stock activity on House Stock Watcher, but here's where things get tricky. It's her husband's stock activity that should alarm you. He reportedly makes investments or sells stocks before decisions in Washington are made or even announced.
This leads most people wondering, rightfully so, if Pelosi isn't feeding him information. Unfortunately, it's so much harder finding Paul Pelosi-s stock portfolio from reputable and current sources. Otherwise, I would say if anyone can afford to, they should follow them.
