Earlier this week, the Daily Caller reported that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul recently bought roughly $5 million in stock of a computer chip company.
According to a financial disclosure, Paul purchased 20,000 shares of Nvidia on June 17, one of the world’s largest semiconductor companies that designs and manufactures graphics processors and other technology, and is heavily reliant on semiconductors.
Pelosi got defensive when a reporter asked her if her husband has ever made stock trades based on information she was able to provide him.
“No, absolutely not” the speaker shot back before she stormed off. Sounds like a similar scenario to how President Joe Biden has demanded he has “never” discussed his son’s business dealings with him.

The House, led by Paul’s wife, passed a bill in February that “included $52 billion in domestic subsidies for the semiconductor industry, and chip companies, including Nvidia, demanded Congress in June move forward on finalizing semiconductor subsidies for domestic manufacturing” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation.

DeSantis Suspends FL prosecutor for refusing to follow abortion, sex change for minors laws
Florida’s Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren is facing consequences for refusing to follow a number of state laws. Warren “pledged not to enforce a number of state laws including a 15-week abortion ban and prohibitions on sex changes for minors.”
As a result, Warren faces suspension by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis. “Today we are suspending state attorney Andrew Warren effective immediately,” DeSantis declared.
National Review reports that Warren was one of 83 prosecutors nationwide who in the wake of the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade signed a letter promising not to prosecute those who perform, abet, or seek abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
“This 15-week ban is an unconstitutional law. The Legislature is hoping courts ignore the Florida constitution. But I’m upholding the law and protecting the fundamental rights of all Floridians,” Warren said in a statement provided to the Tampa Bay Times.
Governor DeSantis issued a press release arguing the governor has the authority to suspend a state officer under Article IV, Section 7 of the Florida Constitution.
“We are not going to allow this pathogen of ignoring the law get a foothold here in the state of Florida. We are going to make sure our laws are enforced and that no individual prosecutor puts themselves above the law,” DeSantis said. “To take the position that you have veto power over the laws of this state is untenable.”
DeSantis was defiant about the decision, noting that of some of the other problematic prosecutors in the state, “Warren was the only one signing letters basically saying ‘to hell with the people of Florida.” Warren was the only signee of the “Joint Statement from Elected Prosecutors” from Florida. He has touted himself as a criminal-justice reformer seeking to end “tough-on-crime” policies.
As for Warren’s vow to flout child gender-transition restrictions, the governor pointed out the absurdity of allowing children to undergo surgeries and hormone treatments that will permanently alter their bodies when those children can’t legally get tattooed.
“A 12 year old boy can’t go in and get a tattoo but we have laws that say you can get a sex change operation,” he said.
“They use euphemisms, but they’re literally chopping off the private parts of young kids and that’s wrong,” he said.
While he “doesn’t agree with every Florida law on the book and sometimes vetoes legislation,” DeSantis affirmed that “that’s just the way the system works.”
