WATCH: Joe Rogan ROASTS Nancy Pelosi Over Insider Trading Scandal
Just recently we reported on Nancy Pelosi and the investigation into her investments as accusations of insider trading have surfaced.
Now, I’m sure that Pelosi has found some way to get around the laws. She’s not exactly a dummy, even though she is a whole slew of other words.
What I mean is that she knows that there is a law and she’s not just going to break that law out in the open, she’s going to be sneaky about it.
She’s not the only one either. In fact, according to a report by Business Insider, there are 52 members of Congress who have broken the Stock Act. Some of these Congress members are:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Sen. Mark Kelly, Rep. Tom Malinowski, Rep. Susie Lee, Rep. Katherine Clark, Rep. Mikie Sherrill, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, Rep. Lori Trahan, Rep. David Trone, Rep. Kathy Castor, Rep. Bill Pascrell, Rep. Brian Higgins, Rep. Cheri Bustos, Rep. Kim Schrier, Rep. Bobby Scott, Rep. Ed Perlmutter, Rep. Tom Suozzi, Rep. Cindy Axne, Del. Michael San Nicolas, Rep. Peter Welch, and Rep. Alan Lowenthal.
The common factor in all of those names is that they are all Democrats. Now, there were also some Republicans in that mix of names as well. Sen. Tommy Tuberville, Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, and Rep. Mo Brooks just to name a few notable ones.
Recently, a reporter asked Pelosi about the allegations made in the Business Insider report regarding her potential insider trading. Pelosi dismissed the idea that members of Congress and their spouses should not be allowed to trade individual stocks.
Pelosi responded saying, “We have a free-market economy, they should be able to participate in that.”
“We have a free-market economy, they should be able to participate in that.”

Then, recently on Joe Rogan’s show, he said about Pelosi, “Have you ever seen a person look more nervous?”
“She’s giving this like very simplistic, almost vague answer,” he said. “Because should you be allowed to participate in the stock market when you’re influencing the direction of the stock, or when you know which direction something’s going to go in? Or when you’re going to pass a law that’s going to benefit these businesses, that’s going to force the stock to go up, and you know that, so you invest a s**t-ton of money before it happens? That seems like it’s a problem. That seems like it’s a problem.”
“Now why is that not a problem? Because we’re f***ing co-opted,” Rogan said.
