Former Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has blown the whistle on Nancy Pelosi by revealing that she witnessed the House speaker’s “blatant corruption.”
Gabbard, a Democratic 2020 presidential candidate, dropped the hammer on Nancy and Paul Pelosi’s stock trading during an appearence on Fox News’s “Jesse Watters Primetime.”
Gabbard told host Jesse Watters thar she witnessed the “corruption” firsthand “when I was in Congress.”
In a follow-up post on Twitter, Gabbard also accused the Pelosis of “putting the American people in danger and undermining our actual national security interests for their own profit.”
“What we’re seeing here is the same thing that I saw when I was in Congress — is this blatant corruption being exposed in broad daylight — the system is rigged,” Gabbard told Watters.
“We have people in positions of power to pass legislation, to enact new policies.
“They can see, ‘OK, here are the industries or companies that will benefit from this.
“I’m going to go and make these investments, buy this stock or that stock, or have my husband or wife do it and then make money in the process.’
“I think it’s important also to look at this, especially in the environment that we’re in right now.
“What is even more dangerous than what we’re seeing here is that we have members of Congress who are investing in companies or industries that will benefit from a new Cold War or conflict, for example.
“And these are the very same people who are making the policies, who have a vested interest in stoking those tensions and amping up this new Cold War, directly benefiting from it, and simultaneously undermining our actual national security for our country and the interests of the American people.”
When our leaders are invested in companies that profit from a new cold war, they have a vested interest in heightening this new cold war, thereby putting the American people in danger and undermining our actual national security interests for their own profit.

The Legal Information Institute defines the crime of “insider trading” as:
Insider trading is the trading of a company’s securities by individuals with access to confidential or material non-public information about the company.
Taking advantage of this privileged access is considered a breach of the individual’s fiduciary duty.
Paul Pelosi has made tens of millions of dollars from buying shares in companies whose values are impacted by the outcomes of congressional legislation.
The Pelosis claim they don’t discuss Paul’s stock buys or how Congress will vote.
So-called “fact checkers” also back them up and argue that the couple never discusses such matters in private.
Nancy Pelosi was asked if her husband ever made stock purchases using information obtained from her job at a recent press conference.
“No,” Pelosi said.
Surely if Paul Pelosi has such a “gift” with economics, the Biden administration would ask for his help in fixing the economy.
