Source: The Hill

The House Oversight Committee on Monday launched an investigation into whether Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is using her office to benefit herself and her family.

“The Committee is examining your misstatements of fact, your actions that may have benefitted the company in which you continued to hold shares, and your compliance with ethics and financial disclosure requirements,” Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill.) wrote in a letter to Chao.

16. Including drugs coming in on her family's ships.

Every time Trump tweets or talks about all the drugs coming over the southern border, reporters need to ask about the drug pipeline from China. No border wall will stop drugs. There are just too many ways to get them here, including the United States Postal Service!

19. Beat me to it!

Well done!

I thought the drugs found on the Chao-family ships were straight-up illegal, including and especially cocaine.

Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s discovered that her family is also behind the massive flow of opioids from the People’s Republic. The House Committee should definitely expand their investigation if/when they get the first hint of pushback from the KKKleptocracy infesting the executive branch right now.

32. Back in Beijing they're cooking up some nasties for the US - get them hooked on drugs

and have an easy march into the country.

Question is, who will destroy this country first. China or rUSSRia?

Since the House keeps passing bills that die in the Senate - start going after every single member of the Trump Cabal.

20. I sense another strongly worded letter is in the works.

Until I see any of these corrupt people arrested, tried, convicted and imprisoned, I won't be hoping for much. Remember who the AG is.
