The House Oversight and Reform Committee on Monday launched an investigation into Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao over whether she is using her office to benefit herself and her family.
The investigation follows a series of reports alleging that Chao used her role in the Trump administration to boost Foremost Group, a shipping company founded by her father.
The article goes on to state the following:
Foremost has received hundreds of millions of dollars in loan commitments from a bank run by the Chinese government. Reports of Chao making joint public appearances and planning to travel to China to meet with government officials with her father since becoming transportation secretary led lawmakers to investigate whether she has been using her position to further her family’s business.
