With focus on Joe Biden’s son earning millions from a Ukrainian energy company deal despite having no experience in the energy industry, now news has emerged that Nancy Pelosi’s son also found suspicious success at earning millions with deals with Ukrainian energy companies.
Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr., reportedly visited Ukraine in 2017. There he met with government officials about a business deal that would lead to a deal with a gas industry company that he would join as an executive.
His high-powered mother can’t claim to be ignorant of her son’s deals, either. She was featured in one of his company promotional videos.
Patrick Howley broke the news:
Paul Pelosi flew to Ukraine in July of 2017 to represent the Corporate Governance Initiative as its executive director. Suspiciously, he took over that role only a few months before striking his huge deal in Ukraine.
The young Pelosi even appeared on Ukrainian TV during his visit:
Speaker Pelosi appeared in a 2013 promo video for NRGLab New Technology, one of her son’s ventures.
“My name’s Paul Pelosi. Of course, I’m on the board of Viscoil. And Viscoil is here today to talk about accelerating the future. It’s about using cars in a more efficient manner. It’s about utilizing natural resources, whether it be electricity, or gas, or fossil fuels in a more efficient way. And Viscoil is a part of that solution,” the Speaker’s son said in the video.
Pelosi’s son has had a few brushes with the law, too. “Paul Pelosi Jr. co-founded the company Natural Blue Resources, which the SEC charged with securities fraud in 2014,” National File reported.
Further, more in depth information about Mr. Pelosi’s companies can be seen at National File if you are interested in more info. But here we are wondering how it is possible that all these children of high-profile Democrats keep accidentally falling into multi-million-dollar deals with Ukrainian energy companies.
Granted, unlike Joe “Quid Pro Joe” Biden’s son who had no energy industry experience, you can at least say that young Mr. Pelosi belonged to some energy companies before growing his millions further with his Ukraine deals.
But how do the children of these Pelosis, Bidens, Kerrys, and Romneys somehow fall into these super lucrative deals with the very foreign nations that their parents are elected to deal with?
It is quite a mystery, isn’t it?
