Russian aluminum company Rusal, partly owned by Russian oligarch and Putin crony Oleg Deripaska (who’s currently under sanctions by the U.S. government), is putting $200 million into a Kentucky aluminum mill plant to be built by Braidy Industries, a company that’s owned by Craig Bouchard, a buddy of Gov. Matt Bevin (R-KY). Rusal will own 40 percent of the aluminum plant.
Rusal is the same Russian company Mitch McConnell voted earlier this year to lift U.S. sanctions on. And Deripaska is the same Russian oligarch still under U.S. sanctions and the same Russian oligarch who had significant business ties to former Trump campaign chairman and convicted felon Paul Manafort.
The great Republican sellout to Russia is still ongoing folks. Their corrupt embrace of Trumpism is a virus, and it is now spreading to the states with the help of Republican Mitch McConnell.
If we get another shot at the ballot box, we better make it count. I say ‘if’ because if Trump sees things going wrong in the election, he might give us a ‘national emergency’.
