Waiting for house committees to investigate McConnell's Russian connections

and Chao's and his Chinese connections, while they're at it.

Remember this thread? (and more has come out since then, but I can never understand why it doesn't get more attention at least from Rachel, etc.)

Mitch McConnell and "The Chao Connection"
"...the Chao family had by far the most significant effect on McConnellís personal life and career. Thanks to second wife Elaine and her family, McConnell became a millionaire many times over and forged ties with contacts at the highest echelons of Chinese government and business.

Elaine Chaoís father is shipping magnate, James Chao.
As McConnellís acquaintance with Elaine Chao developed into a serious relationship, contributions began to pour into his campaign from the Chao family and their business associates. Their wedding ensured that the spigot was never turned off."

"Fast forward to 2018: McConnell retains his position as senate tyrant after the midterms; Elaine Chao is the Secretary of Transportation in Trumpís cabinet, and the Chao family maintains extensive contacts and business investments in China including a seat on the Board of the Bank of China which is partnered with the Russian VTB Bank that is part-owned by oligarch Oleg Deripaska who shares ownership in Rusal with Viktor Vekselberg whose business partner Len Blavatnik donated $3.5million to McConnellís Senate Leadership Fund.
Itís little wonder then that heís blocked every bipartisan bill to protect the Special Counselís investigation."

"...Itís hardly surprising when you realise how enmeshed he is in corruption. He must be terrified of being caught ó so the last person heíd want to protect is Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
This also explains why he was so aggressively opposed to President Obama going public with warnings regarding Russiaís attack on American democracy in 2016."

"Because the tyrant in charge of the senate isnít just flawed, isnít just inadequate to the enormity of the situation, heís also corrupt. No honorable man would subject his fellow citizens to such privation and misery if he had the power to prevent it."

"Addison Mitchell McConnell is without conscience, without benevolence and without honor."

Excellent breakdown of McTurtle's ties to Chinese and Russian oligarchs.

2. The entire rethuglicon party needs to be investigated.

I'm certain there is a lot of stinking rotten meat on the bone to be discovered.

4. What happened to his first wife?

Just curious...

I can't imagine anyone would marry him, let alone two.
