Nancy Pelosi’s Husband Buys Millions in Chip Stocks Right Before Vote on Massive Chip Subsidy

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul bought up to $5 million in stock of a computer chip company ahead of a vote on a bill next week that would hand billions in subsidies to boost chip manufacturing, a financial disclosure shows.

Paul Pelosi purchased 20,000 shares of Nvidia, one of the world’s largest semiconductor companies, on June 17, according to the speaker’s disclosure report released Thursday.

Now, senators will convene as early as Tuesday to vote on a bipartisan competition bill, which allocates $52 billion to boost domestic semiconductor manufacturing and gives tax credits for production, Reuters reported Thursday.

“It certainly raises the specter that Paul Pelosi could have access to some insider legislative information,” Craig Holman, a government affairs lobbyist for the left-wing think tank Public Citizen, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “This is the reason why there is a stock trading app that exclusively monitors Paul’s trading activity and then its followers do likewise.”

Nvidia is a multinational corporation that designs and manufactures graphics processors and other technology, and is heavily reliant on semiconductors.

The House passed a bill in February that included $52 billion in domestic subsidies for the semiconductor industry, and chip companies, including Nvidia, demanded Congress in June move forward on finalizing semiconductor subsidies for domestic manufacturing.

“The conference is stuck. And so it seems to me there are a couple of ways out of this, potentially,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Tuesday, noting that the bill would have a better likelihood of passing without the $52 billion funding for semiconductor manufacturing.

Republican South Carolina Rep. Ralph Norman told the DCNF the “optics” of Pelosi’s stock disclosure “are horrible.”

“Obviously Speaker Pelosi would be aware of the timing of this legislation over in the Senate,” said Norman. “On the heels of that vote, for anyone in her orbit to purchase seven-figures worth of stock of an U.S.-based chip manufacturer just reeks of impropriety.”

Paul Pelosi, who was charged with two alcohol misdemeanors in June after getting in a driving collision that led to his arrest, also disclosed that he sold up to $250,000 worth of Apple stock and up to $5 million worth of Visa stock. The speaker’s husband is an avid stock trader and purchased more than $6 million worth of Nvidia call options in 2021, filings show.

    This is why there should be term limits and they should be required to use blind trusts while in office. All insider trading by citizens such as that would be fully investigated and people would go to jail. Ask Michael Milken and Martha Stewart. These people are corrupt to the core and have no fear of being punished.

    Isn’t it amazing how these politicians continue to be voted in. They steal us blind but no one seems to care. I think Pelosi and her husband should be sent to jail. Maybe we can get a prison just for all the politicians on the take and making themselves rich. We the people need to stand up and say no more. Democrats are destroying our country and our lives.

    THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF INSIDER TRADING. I USED TO WORK FOR A RESEARCH ANALYST ON WALL STREET. I WAS NOT ALLOWED TO BUY STOCK UNTIL THE PUBLIC GOT FIRST DIBS. HE KNOWS SOMEONE THAT IS FOR SURE. THEY CAN NOT GET ANY RICHER BUT STILL DABBLING IN INSIDER TRADING. IT IS REAL WITH THESE CORRUPT DEMOCRATS AND SOME REPUBLICANS. ALL FOR THEM AND NOT FOR THEE.

  • Sarg says:

    If you or I did insider trading we would go to prison. But Congress can do it and get a little slap on the wrist. Remember that when you vote next time. They don’t give a **** about you. Money is their God. Power is their God.
