Mitch McConnell Stopped Russian Sanctions, Now Kentucky Gets $200Mil Investment From Russian Oligarch

The state of Kentucky is getting a new aluminum mill built, the first in 40 years. That’s the good news. The bad news is that Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, Paul Manafort’s crony, is one of the financiers, to the tune of $200Mil. Deripaska’s company, Rusal, is the world’s second largest producer of raw aluminum. Since Mitch McConnell stopped the Democrats from reimposing sanctions on Deripaska, one could reasonably infer that the aluminum mill is McConnell’s payoff. PoliticusUSA: In January, McConnell barely was able to stop a Democratic effort to reimpose the sanctions on Deripaska that Trump had rolled back. Mitch McConnell kept the sanctions from being reimposed and now he is getting his payoff. This is one of the easier forms of Russia/Republican corruption that one will ever see. McConnell enabled the Russian attack on US democracy in 2016 by refusing to stand with Obama in denouncing Russian efforts to manipulate the presidential election. It isn’t just Donald Trump. The Russians have bought themselves a political party, and the Senate Majority Leader is getting rewarded for his loyalty to mother Russia. This is a sobering development. Trump is alienating our allies and ruining trade, on the one hand, and the country is getting more in bed with Russian money, on the other. This is yet another gobsmacking revelation of GOP/Russian relations. Forget about the elephant in the room, it’s changed it’s logo. The GOP should symbolize itself with a Russian bear, preferably one holding a smoking gun. That would be some truth in advertising on the GOP’s part, and quite refreshing.
