'60 Minutes' Goes After Pelosi on Her Stock Trades

EPJ has learned that '60 Minutes' will air a segment this Sunday reporting on conflicts of interest in Nancy Pelosi stock trades.

Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi, purchased between $1 and $5 million in Visa stock while Pelosi was considering legislation that would have a major impact on Visa.

During a press conference Steve Kroft from '60 Minutes' questioned Pelosi as to why she didn't bring legislation affecting credit-card swipe fees to the floor of the House for a vote late in 2008.

Kroft also questioned some of the investments made by John Boehner, but it appears the main focus of the segment will be on Pelosi.
