Now connect the dots betweeen McConnell refusing witnesses at impeachment trials and the DoJ not investigating Chao.


Im not shocked. Hopefully it comes back to Mitch as well.


Well it doesn’t mean shit if she isn’t put in jail and treated like a fucking criminal.


> Most of Chao’s questionable behavior revolved around her father, James Chao, and his shipping business, the Foremost Group, which made its mark transporting raw materials, like coal and iron, to China, and continues to do extensive work with Chinese state-owned businesses. The Shanghai-born patriarch of the family started the business after emigrating to the U.S. in the 1950s, but has since turned the operation over to Chao’s younger sister, Angela Chao. As the secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao was charged with overseeing the American shipping industry. What could possibly go wrong?


She says it’s Asian culture. No, Asians are not predisposed to corruption due to their culture you rotten POS. >Chao pushed back against accusations of misusing her office by chalking it up to cultural differences, pointing to a memo outlining the importance of promoting her father as part of her governmental work. “Anyone familiar with Asian culture knows it is a core value in Asian communities to express honor and filial respect toward one’s parents,” the September 2020 memo said. “Asian audiences welcome and respond positively to actions by the secretary that include her father in activities when appropriate.” Edit: I’m obviously talking about Asian Americans, not Chinese living in China. Also, Chao has been working in the U.S. federal government since the 1980s. Pretty sure she understand nepotism my now. Edit: source
