And it’s not just the semiconductor chip manufacturing. This is what we’ve seen when Paul Pelosi has purchased stock options for Big Tech companies, making tens of millions of dollars as Nancy Pelosi slow walked potential legislation to rein in the power of Big Tech companies.”

“This departure is also bittersweet for me, as he’s been an invaluable member of our team for the last 15 years. All of those who have ever had the privilege of work with Jaime know firsthand his model of an outstanding patriotic servant in a bipartisan way. He has dedicated his entire career to doing the people’s work and has been—excelled, not only in my office but also on the House Financial Services Committee, working with then-Chairman Barney Frank-Treasury Department as a staffer at the SEC.”
