"Veni, Vidi, Vici Visa!!"

The stench is even apparent to NewsWeak.

Now Newsweek and The Daily Beast report that this stock purchase was made as Visa was engaged in a full-court press to lobby Pelosi to stop legislation to curb credit-card swipe fees to vendors. --AOSHQ quoting CBS News

Just by co-incidence, Granny Rictus McBotox was also allowed to purchase IPO shares of Visa, which put her in the same group as Big Brokers like Merrill Lynch, Goldmine, Baird (etc.)  That is very unusual, to say the least.

The IPO was successful, and McBotox' share-values popped by about 50% on Day One of the offering.

Which had do with her delay of swipe-card-fee regulations.

And DiFi, the GunWacko, is just as ......umnnnhhhh.......brilliant in her stock-picking!

...investigative reporter and Breitbart editor Peter Schweizer reveals that on November 18, 2009, Sen. Feinstein and her husband invested $1 million into Amyris Biotechnologies, a “green” company focused on plant-based renewable fuels and chemicals. The Feinsteins’ million-dollar investment was their only stock transaction for the entire year.

Feinstein, however, had good reason to feel that all her investment eggs were secure in the biotech basket, because just weeks after her seven-figure investment in Amyris, the company scored a $24 million grant from the Department of Energy (DOE) to build a pilot plant where altered yeast would turn sugar into hydrocarbons.

These two witches are not indictable for criminal offenses, except that they criminally offend my sensibilities.

Nothing to see here. Move along. The portfolio is held in a blind trust and the people running the trust are not influenced by the owner/beneficiary of the trust.

That's peanuts compared to Boehner's meteoric portfolio jump, courtesy of those "blind trusts" who seem to operate off the same info the Speaker is privy to.
