In an explosive interview with National File’s Patrick Howley, the ex-girlfriend of Nancy Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr., claims that he uses his mom’s office to lure investors to donate in “shell” companies, and that she has never seen him work a real job.
Karena Feng, Pelosi Jr.’s ex-girlfriend, alleges systematic behavior of fraud, threats of violence, abuse, gaslighting and lies all occurred during her years long relationship with the son of the House Speaker, and provided National File with images, emails, and texts to confirm her story.
In one part of a nearly hour-long interview with Howley, Feng details how Pelosi Jr. allegedly uses his mother’s office to entice investors.
Howley asked, “Did he ever express to you what he does for a living?”
“He has a bunch of strange, shell businesses,” said Feng. “He talks about one company after another after another, and there’s really nothing going on, but he expresses it as if there’s something going on to get a bunch of investors.”
Feng went on, “He’s always on the phone talking to investors and telling them about how wonderful and how lucrative, for example, a marijuana outlet in Canada was going to be.”
She added that Pelosi Jr. is constantly leaving the country for foreign business trips, making unexplained visits to Canada and Greece in 2015. Feng says she is still unclear why these trips occurred.
However, she says that in every “shell business” created by Pelosi Jr., the investors never saw a return, and the business would fold having lost the investors’ money.
This echoes a National File story from earlier this year about Pelosi Jr.’s involvement in a now defunct energy business that did extensive business in Ukraine.
“My name’s Paul Pelosi. Of course I’m on the board of Viscoil. And Viscoil is here today to talk about accelerating the future. It’s about using cars in a more efficient manner. It’s about utilizing natural resources, whether it be electricity, or gas, or fossil fuels in a more efficient way. And Viscoil is a part of that solution,” Paul Pelosi Jr. said in the video.
“That’s what Viscoil does. It utilizes technology to maximize the use of natural resources, like oil and other resources,” Pelosi Jr. said.
“Paul Pelosi Jr. is a member of management team of Viscoil Group of Companies and NRGLab. Paul Pelosi Jr. is interested in developing clean energy that can replace gasoline and diesel as transportation fuel sources,” read the description on the video.
Another video posted that same day confirmed that NRGLab was working in Ukraine.
Then Feng alleges that when he calls potential investors, Pelosi Jr. he represents himself as the Office of Nancy Pelosi.
“I don’t know if [Nancy Pelosi] knew or didn’t know,” Feng said, “It seems very odd that she gives Paul Pelosi Jr., her only son, and I haven’t heard of her doing this for her daughters, she gives all power to Paul Pelosi Jr.”
Feng explained, “In everything he does or says, on the phone, in my house, he uses his mom’s name. It’s like, ‘I’m calling from Nancy Pelosi’s office and I want this, I want that.'”
“Then he calls another business entity, ‘Oh I’m from Nancy Pelosi’s office.’ So he uses that, all day.”
Feng added, “It seems like [Nancy Pelosi] knows about that, because he’s been doing it for years. He’s running his business like that, everything he wants he claims it’s from her office.”
