And yes, I know they don't follow the rules.

For Congress it is legal. Literally. They are exempt.

Her husband has a nearly 100% perfect trade record.

Not even the most fabled Wall street trader has that kind of luck, nor would they be as blatant, even if they WERE trading on inside information.

Pelosi and her husband are criminals, pure and simple. Nothing more, nothing less.

Let us not jump the gun. Does the Act say anything about giving info to anybody?

When you trade on non-public information, while the information is still non-public, that's insider trading.

I don't dispute what insider trading is. I note that laws will afford Congress the chance to get money from the information, although illegal to everybody else..

Were you aware that so many laws passed by Congress have the proviso of immunity for Congress? Even a law which specifically targets Congress would not surprise me if it had the immunity codicil embedded in it.

Rogan is way off with that number. Pelosi's net worth is over $300M now.

I know a lefty from a lefty family that listened to Joe Rogan every day. Not sure if he still does as I haven't seen him since pre-covid. Glad to see people like him could be getting red pills like this.

I still say she is a big shareholder in Dominion Voting Machines.

It was on Google the first day the story broke about Dominion but was removed.

Now some Capital Venture firm says the name of the owners cannot be released in accordance with the by-laws.

Congress is exempt. And she didn't make the trades that made her bank... her husband, Paul, the investment manager, made the trades. Nancy used a spousal loophole to bypass insider trading.

Her husband....

I'm not trying to defend her, I'm trying to tell the "legal" truth....

It's not as if he was some homeless guy that she married and now they're stupid rich... Look him up, the dude is fucking loaded...

Of course she takes full advantage of insider trading, but she can never be touched for it because she plays the same game that every single other fucking person in Congress and most of the government plays -- most of that goes through their spouse.... The stuff they usually do in their name will be the few things they don't have a direct conflict of interest in....

Like it or not their spouses are their own individual person with their own individual rights just like everybody else.... How can you tell members of Congress they can't get married or that their spouses can't have their own careers? We have to somehow get more creative to figure out a way to stop this shit in the future.....

That's the slimy shit they have always used to keep it legal for them and to keep themselves out of trouble. Both parties. It also is part of the reason that most of them are married to already very very wealthy people/heirs....

I'm not a Q believer, but that doesn't suddenly mean that everything Q said was stupid or incorrect.... One of the things Q always said when trying to get everybody to do more research was to "Follow the wives" and at times they would say spouses instead of wives. This is exactly what they were talking about.

There are a LOT of laws on the books that have the proviso "the current MEMBERS of CONGRESS are exempt from this law." Or, similar wording.

Not joking. I was stunned when I saw this. Not sure if they currently do this, but, when I found out about it, in the 80s or 90s, I about fell over.
