House Oversight investigating Elaine Chao's ties to family company

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is under investigation by a House panel for possible conflicts of interest, including an examination of whether Chao used her official position to benefit herself and her family business.

In a letter sent to Chao on Monday, the Democrat-led House Oversight Committee requested information related to her ties to Foremost Group, an American shipping company headquartered in New York that is owned by Chao's father and sisters.

Although Chao holds no formal stake in the company, her high status as a U.S. official and her marriage to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have raised concerns about a potential conflict of interest.

What about the oversight committee investigating Cummings and his wife?

Perhaps they will look into the high number of filthy rich politicians who have bilked the public. Oh wait, silly question.

Hogan asked Frosh to investigate her. That is like asking Nancy Pelosi to investigate Hillary Clinton. I won't hold my breathe for Frosh to do anything. He's too busy trying to sue the president repeatedly.
