As the intricate web of foreign business interest ties to American politicians becomes more clear, it turns out that the progeny of the Speaker of the House may be entangled in its threads.
Paul Pelosi, Jr., Rep. Nancy Peloi’s son, recently appeared on Ukrainian television UATV to talk about his business in the country.
Pelosi, executive director of the Corporate Governance Initiative, was asked why he was in Kiev.
“Today we’re here to talk about soccer,” Pelosi said.
“We recently got an endorsement from the world sports alliance and we’ve spoken with the Ukraine government about collaboration for soccer for young people,” he said.
“Ukraine has a great history in soccer and we hope to share in that tradition going forward.”
Of course, that video setting has now been changed to “Private”.
However, there is another video covering Viscoil that is still up as of this writing. It may shed light on a more likely reason for the Ukrainian interest by the Pelosi family.
Paul Pelosi Jr. is a member of management team of Viscoil Group of Companies and NRGLab. Paul Pelosi Jr. is interested in developing clean energy that can replace gasoline and diesel as transportation fuel sources.
Pelosi’s son traveled to Ukraine in 2017 on behalf of the Corporate Governance Initiative, where he now serves as executive director.
Interestingly, another video indicates that Pelosi’s NRGLab did business in Ukraine.
Walter Afanasieff, Brandon Stone, Mika Newton and other artists are actively involved in promoting the clean technology of Viscoil Group of Companies and NRGLab. For example, Mika Newton helped to secure the rights to build a plant for the production of SH-boxes in Ukraine.
The introduction in the first video above is given by Nancy Pelosi, in which she touts Obama “elevating science to a higher place in our national priorities. It is science, science, science…and science”. Arguably, it was corruption that got elevated.
No wonder President Donald Trump has been the target of so much political hatred since he announced his candidacy and through his presidency. The politically connected have much to protect, and parents are highly protective of their children.
However, this is not Paul Pelosi’s first potential brush with scandal. Back in 2014, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charged a company co-founded by Pelosi Jr. with fraud after learning that two convicted criminals were running the business.
Paul Pelosi Jr., the son of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), was the president and chief operating officer of Natural Blue Resources Inc., an investment company he cofounded that focuses on “environmentally-friendly” ventures.
The SEC charged four individuals with fraud, including former New Mexico Gov. Toney Anaya, and suspended trading in the company’s stock. Pelosi owned over 10 million shares in the company in 2009.
The SEC said Wednesday the company was “secretly controlled” by James E. Cohen and Joseph Corazzi, both of whom had previous fraud convictions. Corazzi violated federal securities laws and was barred from acting as an officer or director of a public company. Cohen was previously incarcerated for financial fraud.
Furthermore, it turns out Nancy Pelosi’s son may also be getting jobs for which he has no obvious qualifications.
The firm InfoUSA, headed by major Clinton backer Vinod Gupta, has placed Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr., on its payroll – even though he has no experience in the company’s main business activities, NewsMax has learned.
As NewsMax previously reported, InfoUSA repeatedly rented marketing databases to unscrupulous persons who used the information to defraud the unsuspecting elderly, investigators found.
The company is also under fire in a shareholder lawsuit which alleges that Gupta is appropriating company funds for personal use and his political pet projects.
…Pelosi’s son Paul acknowledged he has also been taking trips on corporate jets provided by Info USA.
I am so looking forward to our press reviewing other incidences of nepotism involving Congress. After all, it went into such detail on both concerns with President Trump, surely our journalists will begin processing the information our team has assembled to develop even more detailed stories.
Meanwhile, I will kick back and enjoy President Trump’s Twitter stream, which seemingly contains a far more fact-base assessment of what is happening with both the American media and its Congress.DONATE
