Joe Rogan is one of the most popular podcasters in America. To this very day, his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, regularly garners millions of views.
On The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan has a series of different guests on. More often than not, the podcast episodes center around various affairs, debates and situations taking place in society.
It’s also not uncommon for The Joe Rogan Experience to get into politics and different current events happening in the world today.
Just last week, while hosting his podcast, Joe Rogan spoke at length about Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and insider allegations attached to her, per Twitchy.
Rogan on Pelosi and Insider Trading
On Thursday, Rogan raised questions about the ethics of Pelosi and other lawmakers being able to hold various stocks when they’re making policies that will impact the outcomes of these stocks.
The popular podcast host then went on to point out that Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, holds over $2.5 million in Tesla shares. Pelosi herself has also amassed a net worth of multiple millions after decades of being in public service.
Like Rogan, many other people have noted the massive gap between what lawmakers earn vs. the net worth of Pelosi and her family. It’s also not the first time that Pelosi’s come under fire for insider stock trading and using this as a vehicle to boost her net worth.
Action at the Federal Level
As more intention is turned to insider trading, most Americans are highly opposed to it.
In fact, there are lawmakers in Congress on both sides of the aisle who have joined forces in coming up with legislation to ban insider trading.
Likewise, there have been debates about whether the spouses and immediate family members of lawmakers should also be prohibited from holding certain stock.
At this time, this legislation hasn’t been passed into law yet, Although, the House of Representatives has held a hearing on the matter.
Since Rogan’s remarks last week, Pelosi has not issued any public statements about the matter of insider trading, her personal fortune, or the fortune of her husband.
Given the bipartisan support that exists for cracking down on insider trading, Americans should keep an eye out for relevant legislation within the coming weeks and months.
These days, it’s getting rarer and rarer for Republicans and Democrats to be able to largely agree on anything. Interestingly enough, the White House has distanced itself from conversations of insider trading altogether.
