While Democrats are pushing the "Green New Deal" - requiring unprecedented funding - while simultaneously rejecting Donald Trump's requests for increased border security funds, details of a "loan" that was granted to Nancy Pelosi's brother-in-law have emerged, further highlighting the Dems' hypocritical use of taxpayer money.

Obama’s Green Jobs just gave money to Dem Donors who gave most of it back to the Dems
Not that there was any insider talk or anything. No way related to her position in CONgress. Of course not.
Pelosi liberally availed herself of insider knowledge to make millions off the stock market before Congress made insider trading illegal for members of Congress. Since she was voting on issues affecting how corporations conducted business, she was in a very good position to profit. Her net worth actually decreased once she could no longer engage in insider trading.
Here’s my surprised face....
Pelosi should be publicly hanged.
Congress repealed the law against their insider trading.
How much of that $737M went back to DNC coffers and PACs?
Old news - happened years ago - being resurrected by a site that does no independent reporting of their own.
Pelosi’s brother-in-law was actually not involved in the loan at all. He was an independent director on a board of directors of one of the companies involved and had no active management of the company’s affairs involving “green” LOANS - and a LOAN it was, not a gift - from the Obama administration.
Unless someone can dig up an Email paper trail on this to and from Pelosi’s brother-in-law, it is an accusation by innuendo just because he was one independent director on a board of directors of one of the companies involved.
Why were these grifters allowed to loot the US Treasury for Fake Green Deals? If we taxpayers could have all the money back that was stolen by the Democrats during the Obama Reign of Error, we could easily build the Presidents wall to protect our country.

Nancy Pelosi's brother-in-law scored $737m of taxpayers' money to build giant solar power plant in middle of the desert. Obama administration approved $1bn in green energy loans days after failed Solyndra project. $737m handed to Crescent Dunes project in Tonopah, Nevada, for 110-megawatt desert solar power plant. Investors include Pelosi's brother-in-law and major Solyndra stakeholder.
The Bank Secrecy Act should be mobilized----to follow the paper trail and determine how money changed hands among
(a) the Pelosi's (b) Obama, (c) green groups and donors, (d) Crescent Dunes.
Demand that the scope and dimension of collusion in sub rosa deals be examined, as to who might be personally profiting and if financing political agendas is being facilitated.
<><> L/E needs to examine bank accounts of the aforementioned.
<><> Joint bank accounts might be used to facilitate the transfer funds from one account to another, and/or wire-transferred offshore;
<><> To cover their tracks, fake invoices might be created to show that money deposited into accounts was being used for legitimate purposes.
<><> Financial schemes scheme might be advanced by issuing phony statements of payments from financial sources that actually covered the transfer of funds for insiders' personal use and/or for financing sub rosa political agendas.
Shady banking transactions could be prosecuted under the (1) Bank Secrecy ACT, (2) RICO, and, (3) the Hobbs Act.
<><> L/E should get ahold of: (1) copies of Pelosi's checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) SPLC correspondence including snail mail, e-mail, mobile devices, cell phones, (8) contracts, (9) loan agreements, (10) other account books or official records.
L/E should also explore (a) monies paid to brokers, sub- brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.
<><> L/E should scrutinize bank accounts for suspicious activities: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) frequent requests for withdrawals.
<><> Pelosi's bank records might also show diversions to secret LLC accounts, to money launder and to operate personal ventures;
Tax fraud may also be a factor, facilitated by withdrawals, gift cards purchases, credit card purchases and intra-bank transfers from legal bank accounts into personal accounts, or redistribution schemes.
<><> A huge tipoff is whether bank withdrawals support luxurious lifestyle including payments for real estate, investment and stock holdings, jewelry, luxury vehicles, resort travel....... and gifts and purchases from luxury outlets.
Just let the FReepers have some fun.......
Insider dealing by members of Congress never stopped. Look it up. Legislation was passed and quietly amended to death. It is going on full bore, ironically benefiting the Trump haters in Congress who are cashing in on his stock market boom.
Is that $737 MILLION dollars?
Tarring and feathering. Then the perp walk. Then lock ‘em up and throw away the key.
“Pelosis brother-in-law was actually not involved in the loan at all. He was an independent director on a board of directors of one of the companies involved and had no active management...”
You do know why certain people are named to Boards. Access and visibility are as important as scrutiny of balance sheets.
I can safely say Eric from Suburbia or Joe from Queens would not be asked, nor would Tryvon from wherever.
Access, access, access.
Were false government reports filed?
Keep in mind...falsifying official documents is the preferred criminal method to cover-up larger crimes.

I am no Pelosi supporter in any way.
But in this case there is no “smoking gun”, any more than the innuendos in the “Russian Collusion” hoax. The only reason this old claim continues to bed brought back out is the “anti-Pelosi” theme it employs that resonates with we Conservatives.
But it is that ploy the web site is using to bring hits to itself. The story is not new and has no more legs now than it first did. Conservative researchers have had years to find Pelosi’s brother-in-laws fingerprints on the deal, and have found none.
Just because it has the anti-Pelosi theme does not improve the repeating of a story that has no legs, other than the repeating of “guilty by association”. If that is all it takes and if that is a standard Conservatives want to apply, then everyone has to watch out ‘cause hardly anyone in politics or government would be innocent.
