CBS’s Steve Kroft grills Pelosi on financial dealings

Thursday, November 10, 2011

imageCBS’ “60 Minutes” tried to interview Nancy Pelosi for an upcoming piece on congressional leaders’ personal financial holdings and how legislation they’ve supported affects those holdings. She was apparently too busy for a sit down. So correspondent Steve Kroft went to one of her pressers last week and fired away from the first row. CBS San Francisco posts C-SPAN video of the exchange here, which, we must assume, will find its way into the Nov. 13 “60 Minutes” piece. Here’s Kroft’s lede question and her reply:

Q: Madam Leader, I wanted to ask you why you and your husband back in March of 2008 accepted and participated in a very large IPO deal from Visa at a time there was major legislation affecting the credit card companies making its way through the House. Did you consider that to be a conflict of interest?

Leader Pelosi: I don’t know what your point is of your question. Is there some point that you want to make with that?
