Former congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard spoke with Fox News’ Jesse Watters about accusations of Nancy and Paul Pelosi’s insider trading; the Pelosis have a suspiciously strong stock portfolio.
“What we’re seeing here is the same thing that I saw when I was in Congress — is this blatant corruption being exposed in broad daylight — the system is rigged,” she said on “Jesse Watters Primetime.”
“We have people in positions of power to pass legislation, to enact new policies. They can see, ‘OK, here are the industries or companies that will benefit from this. I’m going to go and make these investments, buy this stock or that stock, or have my husband or wife do it and then make money in the process,'” Gabbard explained.
“I think it’s important also to look at this, especially in the environment that we’re in right now. What is even more dangerous than what we’re seeing here is that we have members of Congress who are investing in companies or industries that will benefit from a new Cold War or conflict, for example,” she added.
“And these are the very same people who are making the policies, who have a vested interest in stoking those tensions and amping up this new Cold War, directly benefiting from it, and simultaneously undermining our actual national security for our country and the interests of the American people.”
During a recent press conference, Nancy Pelosi was asked her husband ever made purchases using information obtained on the Hill.
“No,” Pelosi said. “Absolutely not.”
