Nancy Pelosi may go down as one of the most corrupt politicians in history when she finally steps away from D.C.
Throughout her lengthy political career, Pelosi has built up quite the nest egg through insider trading. Since 2008 alone, the Democrat’s reported net worth has jumped by $140 million – while earning a salary of roughly $200k.
Pelosi has outperformed some of the greatest investors of all time, like Warren Buffet, by having her husband trade on the very insider knowledge she acquires through her position.
In one recent instance, the House Speaker helped to advance a semi-conductor bill through Congress, while her husband loaded up on popular chip maker Nvidia.
Again on Nvidia, Pelosi’s husband exited a position he held mere days before the U.S. announced a policy change which made the stock plummet – preventing the Pelosi’s from suffering millions in losses.
Nancy has had her feet held to the fire a few times over her obvious insider trading, but eventually the media just moves on and she faces no real consequences, which has made the lifelong politician feel untouchable.
When she was recently asked if her husband has ever taken insider information provided by her and used it to trade, Pelosi simply laughed, and then walked off the podium.
