Schweizer Highlights McConnell-Chao Enrichment Efforts

AUBURN, AL- Peter Schweizer, a tremendous author, researcher, and friend of Take Back Our Republic, has a new book, “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.” A New York Post article examines Schweizer’s look at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Elaine Chao, who also serves as Transportation Secretary.

The author of “Clinton Cash” notes that the couple had an average net worth of $3.1 million back in 2004. In public service since then, they have seen that grow to somewhere between $9.2 million and $36.5 million.

According to Schweizer, much of the money comes from Chao’s father, who does substantial business in China. To read more about his conclusions, view the full article here:

Schweizer’s book debuted March 20th and is now available.

What do you think? Do you agree that the gift received by McConnell and Chao was, in part, of the result of beneficial policies toward China? What do you think of Schweizer’s work here? Join the conversation at
