Earlier this month it was reported Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi, was involved with five companies that were probed by federal agencies.
According to The Daily Mail, the list of companies includes the following:
- The 52-year-old joined the board of a biofuel company after it defrauded investors according to an SEC ruling, and whose CEO was convicted after bribing Georgia officials
- Pelosi Jr. was president of an environmental investment firm that turned out to be a front for two convicted fraudsters
- He joined a lithium mining company and received millions of shares, allegedly issued as part of a massive $164 million fraud
- He was vice president of a company previously embroiled in an investigation of scam calls that targeted senior citizens
- He has close business ties with a man accused by the Department of Justice of running a fake UN charity that stole investors’ money
- A medical company Pelosi Jr. worked for tested drugs on people without FDA authorization, according to an FDA investigation
On Friday, the Daily Mail revealed Paul Pelosi is actually embroiled in SIX FBI probes.
The latest FBI probe involves Paul Pelosi and San Francisco officials he bribed to “take care of” violations at “The Pit,” a rundown hotel owned by his (now ex) girlfriend, Karena Feng.
City permit expeditor Rodrigo Santos was indicted in November in an alleged bribery and fraud scheme.
Mr. Santos allegedly told his clients to ‘donate’ thousands of dollars to the building inspector’s Rugby Club in exchange for city permits
It is believed Paul Pelosi is referred to as “Client-9” in the charging documents as an individual working on behalf of the property owner.
“Client-9” wrote a $1,500 check to the Rugby Club, according to the charging documents.
Mission Local reported:
An inspector at the Department of Building Inspection says that Paul Pelosi, Jr. asked him to “take care of” violations at “The Pit,” a squalid Mission District residential hotel at 1312 Utah St.
This is the same building at which federal charging documents recount the unnamed “Client-9” participating in an alleged bribery scheme in 2017 with indicted permit expediter Rodrigo Santos and former senior inspector Bernie Curran to ameliorate violations in which mandated fixes were never made.
“Client-9” is described in federal documents as “an individual working on behalf of the owners of the property.” This was how Pelosi represented himself to DBI employees in 2018 while attempting to mitigate the so-called Pit’s myriad issues. And, a building inspector now tells Mission Local, it’s how Pelosi represented himself when attempting to personally enlist him to do away with persistent violations on the property.
Following the inspector’s advice would involve actually fixing the problems. The solution “Client-9” hit upon — purportedly bribing Curran at Santos’ urging — would seem to be faster and cheaper than actually spending money to remedy violations. The violation Curran signed off on was, in fact, never fixed.
It is now being reported that the FBI has interviewed Paul Pelosi and at least three associates connected to this bribery scheme.
The Daily Mail reported:
Nancy Pelosi’s son is embroiled in an FBI investigation into a San Francisco official who was allegedly bribed to turn a blind eye to a corrupt real estate plot.
Paul Pelosi Jr. and at least three of his associates were interviewed by agents in a five-year investigation that resulted in an indictment of a prolific building permit fixer for allegedly bribing a city official.
The bribery scheme included an alleged plan to remove permit violations on a squalid flop house owned by Pelosi Jr.’s girlfriend.
Earlier this month a DailyMail.com investigation revealed Pelosi Jr., 53, has been linked to five previous federal probes. This ongoing criminal case is the sixth.
San Francisco permit expediter Rodrigo Santos, a former president of the San Francisco Building Inspection Commission, was indicted for fraud in November.
Prosecutors claim he arranged for his clients to donate thousands of dollars to building inspector Bernie Curran’s favorite non-profit – a rugby club – in exchange for city permits.
Curran and Santos deny wrongdoing. They are next due in court on February 4.
