Nancy Pelosi’s son allegedly tied to fraud and bribery scheme: Report​


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son is allegedly tied to a fraud and bribery scheme that was investigated by the FBI, after documents revealed he was the homeowner of the residence at the center of the investigation.

Paul Pelosi Jr., 53, signed statements that indicated he was the property owner of a flophouse known as “The Pit,” where he had been “legally and financially responsible” for the activity that goes on in the home, according to a report by The Daily Mail.

Mrs. Pelosi’s office DID NOT IMMEDIATELY TRSPOND for comment on the matter. Mr. Pelosi‘s office HAS ALSO NOT RESPONDED for comment on the matter.

Paul Pelosi Jr. and California Governor Gavin Newsome (pictured together in San Francisco in 2009) are cousins
Pelosi Jr.'s links to alleged lawbreakers include:

  • The 52-year-old joined the board of a biofuel company after it defrauded investors according to an SEC ruling, and whose CEO was convicted after bribing Georgia officials
  • Pelosi Jr. was president of an environmental investment firm that turned out to be a front for two convicted fraudsters
  • He joined a lithium mining company and received millions of shares, allegedly issued as part of a massive $164 million fraud
  • He was vice president of a company previously embroiled in an investigation of scam calls that targeted senior citizens
  • He has close business ties with a man accused by the Department of Justice of running a fake UN charity that stole investors' money
  • A medical company Pelosi Jr. worked for tested drugs on people without FDA authorization, according to an FDA investigation
Pelosi Jr. has never been accused or charged with crimes relating to these cases.

How Nancy Pelosi's husband made them $17million in one year​

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made millions from her stock market investments, including from companies she helps regulate.
Her wealth grew by an estimated $16.7 million in 2020, trading over $50million in assets and generating an annualized return of 69 percent that beat legendary investors like Warren Buffet and George Soros, according to Congressional disclosures.
Many of her outsized gains came from bets on big tech stocks like Google, Amazon and Apple – while DC insiders have accused the House Speaker of dragging her feet on reforms to rein in Silicon Valley.
Her Wall Street plays are handled by her husband, Paul Pelosi Sr., who runs investment firm Financial Leasing Services.
His well-timed bets included buying 4,000 shares of Google parent company Alphabet just before a House Judiciary Committee vote on antitrust regulations for Silicon Valley monopolies. The investment earned the Pelosis $5.3 million.
The couple’s fortune is worth an estimated $100million, making Nancy one of the richest members of Congress.
Prominent fellow Democrats Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Elizabeth Warren have called for members of Congress to be barred from investing on Wall Street.
‘The access and influence we have should be exercised for the public interest, not our profit. It shouldn’t be legal for us to trade individual stock with the info we have,’ Ocasio-Cortez tweeted last month.
Nancy Pelosi told a reporter in December that she believed she and her colleagues ‘should be able to participate’ in trading because ‘we’re a free-market economy’, and denied any conflict of interest.
Reliance on tech stocks led the Pelosis to underperform in 2021, trailing the S&P500 by 15.5 percent, according to FinePrint.

But sources close to the Democrat power broker's son – and even Pelosi Jr. himself – admit that some of his business dealings may have arisen from savvy entrepreneurs hiring him in an attempt to curry favor with his powerful family.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is unlikely to be comfortable with the string of convicted criminals and subjects of federal probes DailyMail.com has uncovered as her son's business partners.

But despite all of his associations with criminals and alleged fraudsters, the powerful politician's son HAS NEVER BEEN CHARGED himself – and has tried to cultivate a squeaky-clean, green image.

Back in 2007, Pelosi Jr. was dubbed the 'rising prince' of the Pelosi political dynasty in a Men's Vogue profile.

His mother, Nancy Pelosi, herself the child of a Maryland Democratic Congressman and Baltimore Mayor, had just ascended to Speaker of the House of Representatives. His father was a successful investor, and his cousin, current California Governor Gavin Newsom, was the mayor of San Francisco.

But Pelosi Jr. told the magazine he lived a spartan life, eating a six-egg omelet for breakfast, never turning on the heat or AC in his San Francisco apartment, taking care to not wash his clothes during peak energy consumption hours, and only using his old smart car – a hand-me-down from his parents – when the city's electric bus wasn't an option.

COLD CALL SCAMMERS

Though frugal, Pelosi Jr. certainly wasn't strapped for cash in February 2007, he had just landed a $180,000 job as Senior Vice President at data company InfoUSA, despite already holding a full-time position as a home loan officer at Countrywide Home Loans in San Mateo and having no experience in database marketing.

Paul was president of an environmental investment firm that turned out to be a front for two convicted fraudsters, documents reveal

Paul was president of an environmental investment firm that turned out to be a front for two convicted fraudsters, documents reveal
The company was run by major Democrat donor Vinod Gupta, who had been embroiled in a criminal investigation by the Iowa Attorney General's Office since 2004.

Investigators claimed that between 2001 and 2004 InfoUSA knowingly sold millions of consumers' data to fraudsters who used the information to scam the elderly, stripping some of their life savings.

According to a 2007 New York Times report on the investigation, InfoUSA sold a list of 500,000 gamblers over age 55 called 'Oldies but Goodies', which described its members as 'gullible'.

InfoUSA also sold lists of people with cancer or Alzheimer's called 'Suffering Seniors', the Times reported. The data company denied their lists had such titles.

Iowa investigators found emails showing InfoUSA staff knew the firms they were selling to were being investigated for fraudulently targeting old people, but continued to sell the data regardless, the state's AG said.

Gupta and InfoUSA cooperated with the Iowa investigation into the scammers and were not charged. The investigation was closed before Pelosi Jr. joined the company.

After the investigation was closed, the company said it had changed its practices, and that it 'never characterized individuals on lists as 'gullible.' Nor does infoUSA compile lists entitled 'Elderly Opportunity Seekers,' 'Suffering Seniors,' or 'Oldies But Goodies.'

Some believed Gupta appointed Pelosi Jr. to curry favor with his powerful mother, though Pelosi Jr. denied it at the time.

'I don't think that's really what happens,' he told news site NewsMax in 2007. 'I don't see it that way, but I could see why you'd ask the question... I guess you always wonder why somebody hires you, right?'

I personally don't want to know exactly how corrupt these people are because it only pisses me off when, predictably, nothing is ever done about it

Thanks in advance.

Also, I always hated watching the circus

I always knew the clowns were evil.

True that.
And unfortunately, this is exactly what the Oligarchs want.... for the rubes and sheep, they divide us and get us to blame each other. For those that don't fall for the rock throwing contest... they want us to give up in disgust.

And it works flawlessly.

Isn't it time to "clean out the swamp" and send them all to jail???

There is really no difference between Republicans and Democrats anymore. The only way to fix this mess is to call for a Constitutional Convention to vote on a term limit amendment.

I absolutely agree. In addition, the vast majority in Congress hiding their real, not invented, origins should be eliminated, because these people are pursuing policies that are not in the interests of the American people.

Moreover, they lie to the American people, hiding their origins, which is a criminal offense - forgery.

lack of remorse and empathy, a sense of grandiosity, superficial charm, conning and manipulative behavior and refusal to take responsibility for one’s actions.
