Mitch McConnell, who has marriage ties to the Chinese Communist Party, has turned his back on the Republic and encouraged his fellow senators to accept the election rig and coup against President Donald Trump.
So @senatemajldr decided to aid and abet the biggest criminal fraud and coup in history?!@realDonaldTrump @RealRLimbaugh@BillWhiteNY @LLinWood @DanScavino @LouDobbs @MariaBartiromo @marklevinshow https://t.co/CALoEgPnPi

Yes sir it is. The greatest crime in the world. Appoint special counsel now! There is more than probable cause of federal and state criminal violations. Every #LEO in the country should be impounding all #Dominion equipment @LLinWood @PatrickByrne @BillWhiteNY @KrakenWood https://t.co/HHD0sgRpaW

In fact, McConnell collected thousands from Dominion lobbyists, and then subsequently stopped election integrity bills last year.
In July, McConnell blocked two bills, one that would provide $775 million to “bolster election security,” along with requiring a physical paper trail of every single ballot cast in the country, and a second that would mandate political candidates, their staff members, and their families, to notify the FBI if any foreign government offered to assist them.
[Granted, some massive pork by democrats were included in these measures.]
“Clearly this request is not a serious effort to make a law. Clearly something so partisan that it only received one single solitary Republican vote in the House is not going to travel through the Senate by unanimous consent,” said McConnell on the Senate floor, as he refused to allow the bills to be put to a vote.
However, within the previous year, multiple lobbyists representing Dominion Voting Systems and Election Systems and Software, who together make up around 80% of all voting machines in the country, donated thousands of dollars to the McConnell campaign.
David Cohen and Brian Wild, both of lobbyist Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, who lobbied for Dominion in 2019, donated $2,000 and $1,000 respectively to the McConnell campaign funds. And around the same time, Emily Kirlin and Jen Olson, who have lobbied for ES&S, also donated $1,000 each.
Interestingly, these donations occurred throughout March of 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic first reached the United States and mail-in voting became an almost certainty for the 2020 election.

McConnell on Tuesday praised the processes and outcome of the presidential election, and appeared to align himself with Vice President Biden. “Americans voted in this year’s general election. Legal and Constitutional processes have continued to play out since then,” McConnell said. “As of this morning, our country has officially a president-elect, and a vice-president elect.”
The Senate Majority Leader didn’t mention any of the currently ongoing lawsuits exposing the lack of integrity in the election, or any of the several slates of alternate electors sent by the contested states. “Our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on January 20, the Electoral College has spoken.” McConnell added. “So today I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden.”

National File reported in November that Roger Stone, longtime Trump ally and close friend, said that “100% of the voting machines and voting systems in this country are using the same software that Dominion has been using to switch votes.” This software, known as “Election Guard,” Stone alleges, was created by Microsoft at the behest of Bill Gates himself.

McConnell’s ties to communism are scary.
McConnell’s marriage into the Chao family dynasty has coincided with a trajectory of ever-increasing personal profit for McConnell and the Chaos, as well as Chinese state business interests.
BANK OF CHINA
McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, is the daughter of shipping magnates James and Ruth Chao and the sister of Angela Chao, the latter of whom was appointed to a non-executive position on the Bank of China’s board of directors in 2016.
CHAO FAMILY WEALTH
A massive spike in McConnell’s financial disclosures occurred in 2007 and 2008 following the death of Ruth Chao, with the senator’s federal disclosure jumping from $3 million to $33 million in that two year span according to Forbes.
McConnell’s re-election campaigns have received over $1 million in contributions from Elaine Chao’s family, including James and Angela, according to a 2019 report from the New York Times.
CHAO SHIPPING EMPIRE
Aside from her position at the Bank of China, Angela Chao also serves as the CEO of Foremost, which is the Chao family’s billion-dollar maritime shipping empire. While Foremost is an ostensibly American company with offices located in New York City, Forbes noted that the company’s fleet of vessels “sail under flags registered in Liberia and Hong Kong, and the company does the vast majority of its business in Asia.”
Foremost’s upward trajectory has remained steady during McConnell’s tenure in the Senate, with the company continuing to prosper even during multiple economic downturns in the industry. Shipping database VesselsValue has estimated the company fleet’s net worth at $1.2 billion, making it the most valuable such fleet of any dry bulk shipping operation headquartered in the United States in 2019.
Perhaps some of Foremost’s good fortune can be attributed to the several hundred million dollars’ worth of loans it is contracted to receive from the Chinese government, or the fact that James and Angela Chao, who describe themselves as Americans, have served on the board of the Chinese government-owned China State Shipbuilding corporation. China State Shipbui
The New York Times noted in its 2019 report that the Bank of China, where Angela Chao serves as a non-executive director, is a top lender to China State Shipbuilding.
AMERICA LAST, CHINA FIRST POLITICS AT DEPT OF TRANSPORTATION
Under Elaine Chao’s tenure as Secretary of Transportation, the agency budget “has repeatedly called to cut programs intended to stabilize the financially troubled maritime industry in the United States, moving to cut new funding for federal grants to small commercial shipyards and federal loan guarantees to domestic shipbuilders” according to the Times.
The report also noted that while the Chao family has paid for Chinese programs that provide scholarships and ship simulators for Chinese sailors, Elaine Chao’s Department of Transportation has repeatedly tried to excise grant funding for programs that keep domestic American vessels in service and buy ships that would be used to train American seamen.
McConnell and the Chaos have repeatedly dismissed concerns about conflicts of interest relating to the Senate Majority leader’s family ties to Foremost and Beijing, with Angela Chao insinuating that her ties to McConnell have only come under scrutiny because of anti-Chinese prejudice.
However, critics have noted that the fact McConnell’s public refusal to help President Trump in the latter’s fight to restore election integrity could be influenced by the fact that President Trump’s pro-American, hardline stance towards trade with China may pose a threat to business interests close to McConnell.
