House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) denied that her husband, Paul, has ever made stock trades based on information received from her.
The denial came when Pelosi was asked if Paul, who is a successful venture capitalist and serial investor, ever had done so during a press conference today.
A clip shared by Disclose.TV shows the denial from Pelosi, which came as she was wrapping up the press conference.
As Business Insider pointed out in an article about the denial, Pelosi reported in July that her husband recently exercised 200 call options, or 20,000 shares, of NVIDIA worth between $1 million and $5 million.
NVIDIA is a producer of high-end graphics processing units, and the investment has drawn criticism for coming directly before the Senate is set to vote on a $52 billion bill to bolster computer chip manufacturing in the United States, Insider noted.
Someone off the screen can be seen having said something to Pelosi as she asked them, “We have to go now? One more he said.” Pelosi then pivoted and asked a reporter, “Yes sir?”
“Over the course of your career, has your husband ever made a stock purchase or sale based on information he’s received from you?” the reporter asked.
Pelosi had trouble apparently understanding the question and inquired, “What are you saying?”
The reporter repeated the question and Pelosi scoffed as she responded, “No, absolutely not.”
