Fox host Jesse Watters sets out to investigate Nancy Pelosi’s finances in the show ‘Watters’ World’.
“In 2018, the Pelosis’ wealth has skyrocketed,” Watters said. “That year, her financial disclosure report revealed a net worth of over $114 million. In 2019, Pelosi’s assets total up to a whopping $271 million and in 2020, those numbers went up even more to as high as $315 million.”
Pelosi is one of the richest members of Congress with a $120 million net worth, but Watters argues that the Speaker’s salary is supposed to sit only at six figures.
Watters says that Pelosi’s net worth seems to be mostly due to her husband, Paul.
“After they got married, Paul opened up a real estate and venture capital firm. And through his connections, he pushed Nancy into the political world, helping her get elected to Congress in 1987,” Watters said. “The couple has timed the market perfectly over the years while Nancy’s been a Washington insider. Real estate, stocks, the Pelosis always know what the right investment is.”

Watters also mentions that the Pelosis acquired Tesla stocks before President Joe Biden enabled car incentives earlier this year, as well as other investments.
“In January, the Pelosis got a million dollars worth of Tesla stock right before Joe Biden announced electric car incentives in June. The Pelosi family cashed in big-time just before Congress was set to pounce on Big Tech. Mr. Pelosi exercised options on Google’s parent company, Alphabet, making an easy $5.3 million.”
Pelosi is the only woman in American history to serve as speaker until the election of Kamala Harris. She was the highest-ranked female elected official in United States history.
She is the first female speaker of the House and the first woman to be as high in the line of succession to the presidency.
“The Pelosis have never been indicted for insider trading, but her marriage investments and access, combined with extremely fortunate timing, have created a lot of suspicions,” Watters concluded in his show. “All we’re doing is following the money, and there sure is a lot of it.”
