Paul Pelosi, husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, will be arraigned on Wednesday due to multiple charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and causing injury.
Pelosi was involved in a car crash on May 28 where a Jeep hit his 2021 Porsche. Pelosi was then arrested for having a 0.08 percent blood alcohol content (another charge against him) and had his bail set at $5,000 (though that’s pennies for the wealthy Pelosis). Mr. Pelosi was formally charged on June 23.
Yet the Pelosi corruption doesn’t end there. About a month later, Pelosi sold $4.1 million worth of Nvidia stocks at a loss on the same day the Senate passed a bill bailing out the semiconductor industry. Suspicious given that Paul’s wife is one of the most powerful politicians in Congress.
What are the odds that the courts might find something unsavory in the Pelosi bank accounts? While Nancy has already denied accusations of insider trading, any career politician whose family pulls off such a successfully timed stock trade is bound to raise some eyebrows.
Then again, considering that Nancy advocated for politicians to be involved in the stock market, this isn’t surprising in the slightest. If Cockburn were a bolder man (rather than just a drunk with a computer), he might suggest that Paul Pelosi is getting the Al Capone treatment, nailed not for tax evasion but drunk driving.
