House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is the target of a 60 Minutes investigation.

ABC News says Pelosi was recently questioned at a news conference about legislative actions she oversaw in 2008 that might have benefited her husband's stock investments.

60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft asked Pelosi whether it was a conflict of interest for she and her husband to participate in a large IPO deal from Visa at a time there was major legislation affecting credit card companies making its way through Congress.

Pelosi's husband had purchased between $1 million and $5 million in Visa stock earlier in the year.

Pelosi told Kroft, that day, that his story was false.
