Greenwald: Pelosi Making Millions Trading on Companies She Regulates

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made millions of dollars in the stock market on companies she regulates, reports journalist Glenn Greenwald.

Pelosi’s wealth has increased to $115 million from $41 million over the last 17 years with most of her and her husband Paul’s additional riches due to extremely lucrative decisions about when to buy and sell tech stocks.

Greenwald points out as a blatant conflict of interest, for example, that buying and selling in just Apple accounted for 17.7% of the Pelosis’ overall trading volume.
