COINCIDENCE? Pelosi’s husband invests big in Tesla right before Biden announced electric federal fleet

Did Pelosi have insider knowledge that Joe Biden was going to replace the government’s fleet with electric cars?

Last week, Joe Biden announced that the U.S. government will begin the process of shifting its vehicle fleet to electric. 

The government is indeed a major customer when it comes to the purchase of vehicles. So, replacing the fleet with American-produced electric vehicles will be costly and take time. Also, the market for electric vehicles is small: Tesla, General Motors and Nissan Motor are the only companies producing them domestically so far.

It remains unclear whether Biden’s plan involves plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, which use a combination of EV motors and traditional internal combustion engines. When discussing the plans, he referred to the new fleet being made up of electric vehicles “that are net zero emissions,” CNBC reports

But, questions are circulating about the timing of a large investment in Tesla made by none other than Nancy Pelosi’s husband, shortly before Biden’s announcement. 

Paul Pelosi, a multi-million dollar venture capitalist, reportedly purchased up to $1 million worth of stocks in Tesla when the price of the stock was about $640 a share, BizPacReview reports. Late last week, the stock’s price had risen nearly $200 a share, closing Thursday at $838. 

“Tesla stock has been a darling of Wall Street for years, and the company stands to reap huge profits if the federal government moves to an all-electric fleet, the Washington Times reports. 

According to a recent financial disclosure filed by the speaker, the couple made 25 stock moves, which are known as call options, allowing her to purchase Tesla at $500 per share up to March 2022. 

The invested amount? A whopping $1 million. 

Did Pelosi have insider knowledge that Joe Biden was going to replace the government’s fleet with electric cars? 

Or was it purely coincidence? 

It has long been a controversy whether lawmakers should be able to trade in the stock market. Currently, lawmakers are prohibited under the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act of 2012 from using non-public information to profit in the market – illegal insider trading. 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren also reintroduced additional legislation last month, including a ban on stock trades by Congress members, to combat the issue of insider trading, BizPacReview reports.

    In my opinion, pelosi had knowledge of what Biden was going to do. That is what you call insider trading and buying. People go to jail for this, pelosi and her husband ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW. Warren is reintroducing additional legislation on the ban of stock trades by congress and the family members should be included.

      Congress is guilty of this practice; legal or not. At Polos’s age, she doesn’t need any more money except to give it to her kids and I’m sure they are stealing plenty on their own. Too bad they don’t believe in a DAY OF REKONING OR ATONEMENT. There will be weeping and wailing of teeth (never ending by the way )even with giving the Catholic Church plenty of taxpayer money. If killing the unborn child doesn’t bother her, nothing will.

    Pelosi and her so called husband should have been in prison years ago for all of their crimes. She loves to make rules up AFTER she has created criminal actions and gets away with it. How about the stimulis money obama did and Nancy and Paul got 200 million for their america somoa tuna cannery…….and she never gave the employees a cent for a raise. How about all the money she got and stole all the yrs she has been in congress and walked away scott free. She pretends well doesnt she! She belongs in the firing squad for treason.

    Of course she and her husband knew. That’s why she will not answer any questions.

Sen. Sinema Appears To Quickly Pull A U-Turn After Seeing Biden

Published

on

Joe Biden
Kyrsten Sinema

Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) – who dealt a potentially fatal blow to the Democrats’ election reform legislation by refusing President Biden’s push to reform Senate filibuster rules – appears to have avoided Biden as he spoke to reporters after meeting with Senate Democrats to the legislation.

In a video posted on YouTube, as Biden speaks to reporters, Sinema can be seen emerging from a Senate room in the background. As soon as Sinema appears to see Biden, she turns around and walks in the other direction.

Under current Senate rules, at least 60 senators would need to support Biden’s election reform legislation for it to pass. With the 50-50 split in the Senate, Democrats would need at least 10 Republicans to support the bill for it to have any chance of passing. In order to bypass this, Biden has pushed for eliminating the filibuster, which would effectively allow Democrats to ram through their legislation.

On Thursday, Sinema announced that she did not support eliminating the filibuster to allow the bills to pass through the Senate.

“There’s no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There’s no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy,” Sinema said, according to Fox News. “This week’s harried discussions about Senate rules are but a poor substitute for what I believe could have and should have been a thoughtful public debate at any time over the past year.”

“But what is the legislative filibuster, other than a tool that requires new federal policy to be broadly supported by senators, representing the broader cross-section of Americans… Demands to eliminate this threshold from whichever party holds the fleeting majority amount to a group of people separated on two sides of a canyon, shouting that solution to their colleagues,” she continued.

“These bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself. And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country,” Sinema added.

“Some have given up on the goal of erasing our divisions and uniting Americans. I have not,” Sinema stated. “I’ve worked hard to demonstrate in my public service, the value of working with unlikely allies to get results.”
