US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s only son, Paul Pelosi Jr recently visited Taiwan in her mother’s official entourage being an undocumented passenger, which is similar to Hunter Biden’s trips to Ukraine and many other countries when Joe Biden was Vice President. Both the sons of powerful politicians used official privileges in making hundreds of millions of dollars. Paul Pelosi Jr, who is involved in Lithium trade has already succeeded in getting “business counterparts” in Taiwan and few other Asian nations as his mother has secretly requested those countries to “look into her son”. Taiwanese authorities cannot ignore such request from Pelosi if they are looking for “special favor” from Washington.
This is not the only allegations brought against Paul Pelosi Jr. According to media reports, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son has reportedly been involved in a fraud and bribery scheme that was investigated by the FBI, according to documents indicating he was the homeowner of the flophouse at the center of the investigation.
Paul Pelosi Jr, 53, signed statements that he was the property owner and ‘the party legally and financially responsible for this proposed construction activity’ at the property known as ‘The Pit’.
Documents show he was applying for one of the same permits that building inspector Bernie Curran and ‘permits expeditor’ Rodrigo Santos have been indicted for.
The Department of Building Inspection form signed by Pelosi Jr from 2017 provides some evidence of his close connection to the high-profile public corruption criminal case.
Prosecutors said that Santos arranged for his clients to donate thousands of dollars to Curran’s favorite non-profit in exchange for him ignoring violations that would prevent their buildings from getting city permits.
One client, identified only as Client 9 in court documents, wrote a US$1,500 check to the nonprofit to help remove violations from a hotel that was owned by Pelosi Jr’s former girlfriend, Karena Apple Feng.
New documents as well as text messages had created speculation that Client 9 may be Pelosi Jr.
The text messages between the two show Client 9 discussing the donation to Curran’s favorite charity to ease the permit process.
‘I will forward the address to Curran. He will abate it,’ Santos allegedly wrote in September 2017.
‘Please drop off a check payable to Golden Gate Youth [Rugby] Association for US$1k. Bernie’s nonprofit.’
‘With pleasure,’ Client 9 replied, and later sent Santos a picture of a $1,500 check with the message, ‘Made the donation and it is being sent today’.
The check was never deposited by the club, and prosecutors have not made any accusations of wrongdoing relating to it.
The charging documents describe Client 9 as ‘an individual working on behalf of the owners of the property located on the 1300 block of Utah Street’.
Pelosi Jr was hired by five firms that were subject to both federal and state
probes due to ‘connections to a host of fraudsters, rule-breakers and convicted criminals. Pelosi has not yet been charged. This ongoing criminal case would be the sixth.
In 2007, Pelosi Jr was dubbed the ‘rising prince’ of his family’s political dynasty in a Men’s Vogue profile. His mother is the highest-ranking elected woman in the US while his father is a successful American businessman.
According to court documents, Karena Apple Feng filed a Property – Personal Property Fraud lawsuit against Paul Pelosi Jr. This case was filed in US District Courts, California Northern District. Case number 3:19-CV-07541, dated November 15, 2019.
