House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is one of the worst Swamp creatures in Washington, D.C.
While Donald Trump got attacked ferociously for trying to clean up the D.C. Swamp, Pelosi has largely escaped unpunished for her corrupt rule in the House.
And now Pelosi supporters just dropped the hammer after she got called out for insane levels of corruption.
Nancy Pelosi is the richest member of Congress, and her financial dealings have become the subject of conversation even for people on the Left.
Pelosi was recently asked if members of Congress and their spouses should be allowed to trade individual stocks while in office, and she replied, “No…We’re a free-market economy. They should be able to participate in that.”
The only problem is it’s not the free market at hand when members of Congress can regulate businesses, and it’s even less of a free market when members of Congress can make trades based on their knowledge of regulations that could be enacted or buried.
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle argued:
“When you’re the CEO of a publicly traded company, there are all sorts of restrictions on what you can do. When you work in an investment bank, when you work as an investor, so many restrictions when it comes to personal investments. But these people, lawmakers, these are policymakers – policies that directly influence the way business is done all over the country – how is this even remotely legal?”
These are the questions that aren’t supposed to be asked.
A Twitter account that was tracking Pelosi’s stock portfolio was shut down for shining a light on her Swampiness.

Both Left and Right have called out Pelosi’s corruption.
Fox host Steve Hilton once ran a segment detailing her dubious transactions.
“On March 18th, 2008, while she was Speaker, Nancy Pelosi bought $220,000 of Visa IPO or initial public offering stock. She got it a day before it was publicly traded—a privilege reserved for a select group of hand-picked investors. Here’s where it gets really swampy. Two weeks before she was given special access to the IPO stock, a piece of legislation called the Credit Card Fair Fee Act of 2008 was introduced in the House. It would have cut Visa’s revenue and hurt Visa’s stock price. Something that then-Speaker Pelosi now had a direct interest in. By a remarkable coincidence, this piece of antitrust legislation, normally such a priority for Democrats, never made it to a vote on the House floor.”
How Pelosi has made nine figures on a $200,000 public sector job is anyone’s guess because people seemingly are not allowed to ask the question.
And as we saw with Donald Trump, you’ll get attacked ferociously for trying to clean up the D.C. Swamp.
