Paul Ryan's Exceedingly Smart Aide

Gee, this guy is really, really, smart, eh??

Paul Ryan's Chief of Staff has also managed to get really "lucky" on the timing of some trades over the years.

That would be David Hoppe, a former lobbyist.  Through skill and intellectual acumen, Hoppe and/or his wife purchased stock in various pharmaceutical and energy stocks.  These purchases were executed just before Congress passed legislation favorable to those interests.

Those purchases had nothing whatsoever to do with Hoppe's status as the Speaker's Chief of Staff.  It was pure skill, analytical ability, and smarts.
