On Wednesday, The New York Times reported that the Transportation Department inspector general asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into former Secretary Elaine Chao, wife of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

"The inspector general's investigation detailed a series of instances where Ms. Chao directed her staff to spend federal government time and resources to help with matters related to the shipbuilding company and her father," said the report. "The Chao family company, Foremost Group, was responsible as of 2019 for a large portion of orders at one of China's biggest state-funded shipyards, and has secured long-term charters with a Chinese state-owned steel maker, The Times reported. Foremost's ships carry bulk cargo such as iron ore and coal, focusing on shipping those commodities to China."


Merrick Garland is going to be a busy man.

Every elected official with some kind of economic relation to communist China should be made to come clean and explain themselves....whether it be the wife son or brother or themselves....
That way we will see what the real reason for being anti Trump is in the DC swamp....and in blue state leaders...

The IG referred it to the DOJ for criminal prosecution but trump's DOJ refused to prosecute her.

The corruption of the trump administration keeps coming out. He had one of the most corrupt administrations in my lifetime.

Republicans in the pocket of China, again? What a surprise. Not.

Remember, if Republicans accuse Democrats of something, it's always because it's exactly what they're doing themselves.

The wife of Mitch McConnell... Well... That does explain of a few things. I've never really been a fan of Mitch.

No wonder that the department heads in the trump administration fired the inspectors general of their departments. Pompeo and his wife are under investigation, which is why he fired the State Department's IG. Azar is under investigation over some coronavirus reporting scheme. There may be more. Lots of links to China.

Please take Mitch with her.

But nothing will happen.

Mitch is the establishment.

Might as well save the time and money... the other swamp dwellers will close ranks and protect Mitch the Bitch.

Running against someone in an election is not a "coup," "soft or otherwise.

That didn't happen. A few were fired, and for good cause, by POTUS. The department heads cannot fire IG's.

Then there was this; where were you then?

The Deep State does not lower itself to ruling through the election process

They begin their reign as employees of the government and work their way up the ladder of power
