Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi was charged with driving while impaired (DUI) after being involved in a car crash, and it’s becoming clear that Democrats have a certain “privilege” that nobody else has.
Included in that double standard is stock trading. Paul Pelosi has been involved in shady stock trades in companies that his wife regulates including Amazon, Apple, Google, and Tesla for years. Now that double standard may be translating to a DUI charge.
Just after the DUI investigation, the California Highway Patrol said, “The Napa County District Attorney’s Office has advised the release of records would jeopardize an ongoing investigation. As such, records are being withheld pursuant to Government Code section 6254 (f).”
Government Code section 6254 (f) says that records should remain private “if the public interest in withholding those records clearly outweighs the public interest in disclosure.”
That means that Paul Pelosi is more important than you are. Just remember, if you were charged with DUI, they wouldn’t have any reason to hide the footage from the public.
