House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) disclosed up to $1.5 million in Apple trades and $600,000 in Microsoft, leading to serious concerns about her conflict of interest.
Pelosi’s husband is the one doing the stock investing, but how ethical is it for him to be trading massive amounts of individual stocks when he lives with someone who has access to insider information as a high-ranking member of Congress?
She has recently signaled she is open to enacting laws that would ban Congress members from individual stock trades, though the proposal has quietly disappeared in recent weeks. It appears the new law would cut a little too close for home for Pelosi, who would be in big trouble if the new law included spouses of Congress members.
The disclosure is not only an ethical issue, but reveals the depths of corruption for Pelosi in D.C. She has served in the House for decades, with her family becoming multi-millionaires in the process. That didn’t come from her government income, with stocks playing a significant role in her net worth.
