Joe Rogan: If Insider Trading Is Illegal, How Did Nancy Pelosi Get $150 Million Dollars?

During a conversation with Jocko Willink on Friday, podcaster Joe Rogan wondered why no one has ever investigated the outstanding investment portfolio of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband for possible insider trading. <b>See also via Business Insider</b>: <a href="">Retail traders are mirroring investments by Nancy Pelosi's husband, whose stock picks have been strong performers over the last 2 years</a> -- <i>His stock picks have been quite successful, Christopher Josephs, cofounder of social investing app Iris, told Yahoo Finance, saying that every trade "inevitably turned out to be such a long term winner."</i> <blockquote>JOE ROGAN: I think [the Democratic Party doesn't like former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard] because she is dangerous. She's too strong. You can't tell her what to do. A lot of these gals and guys that become congressmen, senators have aspirations. You know they're going to play ball. Like [California Gov.] Gavin Newsom? You know he's got some of those socks that go up to his knees. He's playing ball, baby. He's got cleats on, he's playing ball. A lot of these people play ball. Tulsi Gabbard is not playing ball and that is dangerous. If you have this organization that is based on this sort of cronyism and Nancy Pelosi is the head witch, and everybody is all rolled up and doing the voodoo and working together to form a narrative that doesn't make any fucking sense. All those people work together and it is very clear. There's like a system and they all get funded. And they all make sure we keep this kind of crooked system that would allow someone like Nancy Pelosi, who makes $200 grand per year, she's worth $150 million dollars! How the fuck did that happen? JOCKO WILLINK: It's a mafia. JOE ROGAN: If insider trading is illegal, how is it legal for [Nancy Pelosi's] husband to make all these purchases of stock right before these giant deals came out that she negotiated. And she gets this windfall and gets insanely wealthy! JOCKO WILLINK: Over and over and over again. JOE ROGAN: Over and over and over again! And there's no investigation into it, there's no talking about it, it is fucking wild, man. It is wild shit. JOCKO WILLINK: It is mafia shit going on. 100%. JOE ROGAN: And they think that, like, Putin is a mobster. Like, what are you? What are you? "Putin kills people." Oh, you don't think any of these people kill people? Are you out of your mind? You think that's where they draw the line? They'll drone strike innocent civilians and make like nothing happened, no big deal! But they won't kill people who are causing problems? You're out of your fucking mind! JOCKO WILLINK: It would be interesting if Tulsi Gabbard went over to the Republican side, she gets more love from Republicans than she does from Democrats. JOE ROGAN: It is possible. The Democrats hate her. She should go over there. Ron DeSantis and Tulsi Gabbard? Holy shit! Good luck!</blockquote>
