    In at least a dozen interviews with Chinese and Chinese-American media outlets since her nomination, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao has appeared beside her shipping magnate father, whose company carries goods between the United States and Asia, and who has given Chao and her husband at least $5 million in the past 10 years.

    One interview with New China Press published on April 12, 2017, features the pair sitting in what appears to be the Department of Transportation, with DOT flags in view behind the interviewer. Long portions of the interview are in Chinese, with James Chao talking about his life story, with a copy of his biography on the screen, and Elaine Chao extolling her father’s success story as “lifting the status of Asian-Americans in America.” She also touts his $40 million gift to Harvard University.

    Scroll down a little ways.

    BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Chao has retained shares in the construction materials company Vulcan Materials for more than a year from the date she promised to give them up, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday, citing federal disclosure forms. Shares of Vulcan (which trades as VMC) have risen nearly 13 percent since April 2018, which was when Chao initially promised to relinquish them, according to her 2017 ethics agreement. The Journal said that increase has netted her a more than $40,000 gain.

    Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao’s day-to-day calendars are filled with large swaths of time blocked out as “private,” according to POLITICO’s analysis of newly released records — a pattern that several former DOT officials called unusual.

    In total, Chao clocked more than 290 hours of appointments labeled private — the equivalent of about seven weeks’ vacation — during her first 14 months in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet, based on a review of documents provided under the Freedom of Information Act. That total does not include any private hours that occurred on nights, weekends, days marked as vacation or federal holidays.

    Rachel Maddow has a segment on Chao and her corrupt husband on now. It is interesting,catch it on a rerun if you can.

    Elaine Chao denies ties to her family’s shipping biz — but she invited them to 2017 DOT event

    Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is coming under more scrutiny after newly released documents show she invited employees of her family’s shipping business to an official Department of Transportation event in 2017.

    Documents obtained through a legal action filed by the website American Oversight show that “Chao held a private photo session in 2017 at the Department of Transportation in which she and her father posed for photographs with employees of the Foremost Group and several Chinese media outlets.”

    New York Times reporter Eric Lipton, who has done extensive reporting on Chao’s potential conflicts of interest, notes on Twitter that Chao “says she has no ties to her family shipping company,” even though she literally invited them to an event at the federal agency she oversees.
    Just another swamp person.

    More on the corrupt transportation secretary and her family's company ties to China.

    Department of Transportation sued for documents related to Elaine Chao
    A public interest group sued the Department of Transportation on Monday for documents related to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.
    Restore Public Trust submitted two FOIA requests seeking information related to Chao earlier this year. The DOT acknowledged receiving the requests in April, but it has yet to hand over any documents.
    The requests were in response to a New York Times report that disclosed ties between Chao’s family company and her official actions as secretary of transportation.
    Chao’s family owns the Foremost Group, an American shipping company headquartered in China. While she 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.
