HeadlineMar 05, 2021

Back in the U.S., the Transportation Department’s inspector general has found the department’s former secretary, Elaine Chao, the wife of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, repeatedly misused her office to help family members, including her father and sister, who run a global shipping business with large operations in China. The inspector general’s report was referred to Trump’s Justice Department last December, which declined to open a criminal investigation.
