Remember when Trump reduced sanctions against Deripaska's company, Rusal, w/ McConnell's support?

Is Braidy Industries of Kentucky getting in bed with Russian mobsters?


Kentucky might be going into business with the Russian mafia.


If all goes according to plan, by the middle of the year, we’ll be in business with Oleg Deripaska, a buddy of Vladimir Putin.

He could be sending $200 million — if you believe media reports — in what could very well be mobbed-up money to northeastern Kentucky to build a $1.7 billion aluminum plant on an old strip mine there.

The United States government, according to the New York Times, has long believed that Deripaska has deep ties to Russian organized crime — the Bratva — so much so it has limited his travel here and prohibited him from doing business in this country.

4. You know who McConnell is married to, right?

Here is his brother-in-law who is married to Elaine Chao's sister:

For people who haven't seen this, click the link and look at the documentation.

Funny how we keep seeing links between Russia and China.

5. Damn, only an opinion column. Someone needs do do a little investigative reporting on this...

 

It is nice they are informing their Kentucky citizens.
