(MSN)   Turns out Elaine Chao's resignation may not have been related to the insurrection, but rather to the fact that the Transportation Department's inspector general referred her for a criminal investigation into misuse of her office   (msn.com) divider line

Her dad is a big wig in China, and ms Chao was working as a foreign agent against US interests. So was Trump, but he was enriching himself, not China.

I suspect Garland might take a second look at these.
 
2021-03-03 6:30:22 PM  
So she was part of the swamp and she self-drained.  How could Trump not give her the Presidential Medal of Freedom for that selfless act?

Moscow Mitch's wife isn't on the up-and-up? Go figure.

The family that crimes together, swings together?

Chao's family funneled millions of dollars to Mitch McConnell, who appears to be compromised by the Chinese government.

I want to see Mitch have to turn his back on his own wife in order to save his own neck.

Is that really too much to ask? Just a little psychological suffering?

Time for Biden to take Mitch golfing and play "Let's Make A Deal". Pass the minimum wage hike and everything else I want or Elaine goes to prison. Well that's what I'd do anyway. If Trump can do it with Lindsey...

it wasn't an insurrection, it was a grolsch. come on you guys

I don't think that Mitch would save his wife. He craves power above all else.

The Martin County coal slurry spill was an accident that occurred after midnight on October 11, 2000 when the bottom of a coal slurry impoundment owned by Massey Energy in Martin County, Kentucky broke into an abandoned underground mine below.[1] The slurry came out of the mine openings, sending an estimated 306,000,000 US gallons (1.16×109 l; 255,000,000 imp gal) of slurry down two tributaries of the Tug Fork River. By morning, Wolf Creek was oozing with the black waste; on Coldwater Fork, a 10-foot (3.0 m) wide stream became a 100-yard (91 m) expanse of thick slurry.

The spill, which contained arsenic and mercury, killed everything in the water.[2] It was over five feet deep in places and covered nearby residents' yards. The spill polluted hundreds of miles (300-500 km) of the Big Sandy River and its tributaries and the Ohio River. The water supply for over 27,000 residents was contaminated, and all aquatic life in Coldwater Fork and Wolf Creek was killed. The spill was 30 times larger than the Exxon Valdez oil spill (12 million US gallons (45,000 m3)) and one of the worst environmental disasters ever in the southeastern United States, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency.[3] The spill was exceeded in volume by the Kingston Fossil Plant coal fly ash slurry spill in 2008.

U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, wife of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), oversaw the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) at the time. In 2002, a federal penalty of $5,600 was levied against Massey Energy

Good. Take down China Chao and then go after Moscow Mitch. Time to start putting these traitors behind bars.
 
2021-03-03 9:57:06 PM  
Too bad Moscow Mitch will only say that AG Garland investigating his wife is politically motivated, and Merrick Garland will shrug his shoulders and say "Ok" and drop the investigation.
 
2021-03-03 9:57:09 PM  
Well I'm shocked.
 
2021-03-03 9:57:46 PM  
I know it's too late for TPP but I hope we are working on plan b.

Isn't it nice how all these IGs and watchdogs finally grew a conscience once it was far, far too late for it to possibly matter?

That's really great.

You think that would cause him suffering?

Plainly you are not a Kentuckian. The only thing that causes McConnell to suffer is to have to act to prevent the suffering of others.

Oh I hope he has a friend to friend talk in the rose garden, and he shows him where Johnson had that one senator whacked. You know, the one that got in the way of progress, Mitch.

Oh hey, remember that shady deal Mitch made with the Putin oligarch for the mine or whatever in Kentucky? Think the DOJ would want to look into that as they look into his wife's shady foreign dealings?

There's a lot of jail time coming. Could be probation if he played ball

TheCableGuy: Garland will be a busy guy.

Garland isn't going to do a farking thing, by design. Just like Mueller. Can't keep the game going if anyone has to leave the table. If he actually does a goddamn thing that matters to anyone who matters, I will be epically shocked.

He was nominated for SC because he was just about the least effectual, least controversial, least boat-rockingest boring white guy judge they could possibly find who actually had any credentials. He's not going to be any more aggressive as an AG than he would have been as a Supreme Court justice. He is ballast. He is reliability. He's going to twiddle his thumbs while vanilla ISIS sleep of their meth binge from the Trump years and regroup to do serious harm.

Unless he goes unexpectedly nuclear on a few ten thousand assholes, I fully expect a whole shiatload of nothing from him.

Mitch will dump her in a second and claim he barely knew her.
 
2021-03-03 10:23:06 PM  
Yeah well I heard a totally unsubstantiated rumor about hunter bidens ex college roomates neighbors friend reviewing a gazillion dollars from china in exchange for total submission of the entire us deep state to the ccp so both sides are pretty much the same.
 
2021-03-03 10:25:30 PM  
So they resign So what. Charge them anyway. This isn't a Monopoly game where you get the jail free card.

I heard that she just got coffee for him a few times...
 
2021-03-03 10:34:14 PM  
I figured she resigned so she didn't have to have a say in a potential 25th.
 
2021-03-03 10:37:57 PM  
It might be simpler to lock up the entire former administration for 10-20, and let them out on a case-by-case basis.

How does he make a face like that.  I went and looked in a mirror and I couldn't get my mouth to move into that shape.  Must be special turtle powers

Oh man, all those GQPer's that were losing their shiat over Swallwell doing exactly what he should have when he thought he was meeting with a foreign spy are going to lose their shiat over this when they find out.
