Trump Expose Corrupt Nancy Pelosi’s son linked to shady companies probed by Feds

Paul Pelosi Jr., the son of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has reportedly been linked to at least five business entities under investigation by authorities for alleged fraud.

The 52-year-old Paul Pelsoi Jr., the only son of Nancy and Paul Pelosi Sr., was hired by several firms that were subject to both federal and state probes, and meanwhile has “connections to a host of fraudsters, rule-breakers, and convicted criminals,” although he has never been charged himself, according to DailyMail.

The website reports that in February 2007, Pelosi Jr. was hired as senior vice president by Omaha-based InfoUSA, a database marketing company that was investigated by the Iowa Attorney General’s Office several years earlier for allegedly selling consumer data to fraudsters.

The data was then used to scam sick and gullible elderly people out of money, it was alleged. The investigation was closed and no arrests were made. Pelosi Jr., who was paid a salary of $180,000 per year, joined the firm after the probe ended.

InfoUSA was founded by Vin Gupta, a major donor to former President Bill Clinton. The Associated Press reported that Gupta and his company were investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2007.

The probe was launched after Gupta was sued by shareholders who allege he misused company funds to fly Bill and Hillary Clinton on private corporate jets.

in 2009, Paul Jr. co-founded Natural Blue Resources Inc, an investment company whose stated mission was to “create, acquire, or otherwise invest in environmentally-friendly companies, including an initiative to locate, purify, and sell water recovered from underground aquifers in New Mexico and other areas with depleting water resources.

”But the SEC alleged that the company was secretly run by two convicted fraudsters — James E. Cohen and Joseph Corazzi. In 2014, the agency brought fraud charges against Cohen, Corazzi, former New Mexico Gov. Toney Anaya, and a former executive at the company, Erik Perry.

While Cohen and Corazzi claimed to be “outside consultants,” they in fact controlled the company “without disclosing their past brushes with the law to investors.” Pelosi Jr. reportedly owned more than 10 million shares of the company.

The SEC suspended trading in Natural Blue stock. Pelosi Jr. was never charged. According to DailyMail, even though there was enormous evidence linking him to those who were indicted.

In 2010, the SEC charged Gupta and two others for “funneling illegal compensation to himself in the form of perks worth millions of dollars.” The case was eventually settled. Gupta did not admit or deny the allegations.

Pelosi is one of the richest members of Congress, with an estimated net worth of more than $106 million, according to an analysis by The Post. That’s an average of the maximum and minimum estimated value of her assets and liabilities — the methodology used by the Center for Responsive Politics — using her most recent financial disclosure from August, which pegs the maximum at $252 million and the minimum at $40 million underwater.

Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, is a businessman who runs the venture capital and investment firm Financial Leasing Services and has made countless bets on high-profile companies his wife is supposed to regulate, like Amazon, Apple, and Google.
