(Conservative Brief) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband is still living his best life despite recently being charged with Driving Under the Influence.
A new report reveals that Paul Pelosi previously invested millions of dollars in Nvidia Corporation and sold large quantities of Visa and Apple stocks and call options in June — making him some extraordinary profits.
“The congresswoman reported three new stock and stock option trades made by her husband last month in a disclosure filed with the House of Representatives on July 14. According to the filing, Paul Pelosi exercised 200 call options, or 20,000 shares, of Nvidia at a strike price of $100 and expiration of June 17, 2022, worth between $1 million and $5 million,” the Epoch Times reported.
“On that same date, her husband also sold 50 call options in Apple at a strike price of $100, with the transaction listed with a value of between $100,000 and $250,000. Call options are a contract between a buyer and a seller to purchase a certain stock, bond, commodity, or other assets at a certain price up until a defined expiration date,” the report added.
“Her financier husband, who is estimated to be worth in excess of $100 million, also sold 10,000 shares of Visa worth between $1 million and $5 million on June 21, according to the filing. Earlier last month, Pelosi disclosed that her husband had purchased options to buy shares of Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp. worth upwards of $2 million,” the report continued.
Paul Pelosi has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with .08% blood alcohol level or higher causing injury.
Last month, California law enforcement released the mugshot of Paul Pelosi from his DUI arrest last month.
“Police release booking photo of Speaker Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi from late May after he was arrested for DUI,” Fox News correspondent Chad Pergram wrote on Twitter. “Napa County says the decision to release or withhold mugshots is up to police. Not DA.”
“Mr. Pelosi received the same treatment under that policy that all individuals released from County Jail receive,” Napa County law enforcement officials said. “No state law specifically requires the release of booking photos or mugshots, but policies regarding this topic can vary by jurisdiction.”
Pelosi agreed to a court date of Aug. 3 at 8:30 a.m. in Napa County Superior Court.
Pelosi’s attorney released a statement following his late May arrest.
“Several news reports about Saturday night’s traffic incident involving Paul Pelosi have included incorrect information,” the attorney said. “Mr. Pelosi was attending a dinner party at the home of friends near Oakville.”
“He left that party at 10:15 PM Saturday, to drive to his home a short distance away. He was alone in his car,” the statement continued. “After stopping at the intersection of Walnut Drive and Highway 29, and proceeding across Highway 29 to Oakville Cross Road, his car was hit on the back fender by a Jeep heading southbound on Highway 29.”
The attorney claimed that Paul Pelosi was “fully cooperative with California Highway Patrol officers” and that “a prior driving offense erroneously attributed to Mr. Pelosi is untrue and likely refers to another person with the same name.”
“There are also incorrect reports that misstate the timing of events,” the statement concluded. “Mr. Pelosi left the dinner party at 10:15 PM Saturday. The incident happened a few minutes later.”
Speaker Pelosi’s office released a statement at the time saying the 80-year-old California lawmaker would not be commenting on the alleged crime.
“The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast,” spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement.
A California district attorney is also refusing to release the police body cam showing the arrest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi.
It was also revealed last month that Paul Pelosi allegedly “killed” his older brother when he lost control of a car that he was driving back when he was a teenager in 1957.
