House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul bought millions of dollars in call options for stocks including Disney, Google, and Salesforce just two days after she publicly pushed back on concerns from her own party surrounding the ethics of lawmakers making individual stock trades.

“We’re a free market economy,” the Democratic leader told reporters during a news conference on Dec. 15. “They [lawmakers] should be able to participate in that.”

And that is exactly what the Pelosi family did.

Paul Pelosi bought stock in Alphabet worth between $500,000 and $1 million. He also scooped up shares of Disney worth $100,000 and $250,000 and also bought between $250,000 and $500,000 in call options for chipmaker Micron Technology.
