Mad Mitch McConnell is in bed with the Russians again,,,He has brokered a deal with “Rusal” for Braidy Industries, which is developing a new Kentucky aluminum mill partially backed by the Russian aluminum giant Rusal which is owned by Oleg Deripaska a Russian oligarch himself and is still under U.S. sanctions. Braidy has hired a firm with ties to Sen. Mitch McConnell to give the project a public relations boost as Democrats raise concerns about the initiative. The firm, RunSwitch PR, was co-founded in 2012 by Scott Jennings — a former McConnell aide who ran a super PAC in support of the Senate Majority Leader called Kentuckians for Strong Leadership.

Braidy hired RunSwitch in July “following recommendations from fellow business leaders naming them the best statewide media relations agency,” a Braidy spokesman said. The public relations push comes amid Democratic calls for the Trump administration to review Rusal’s $200 million investment in the aluminum mill project, which was made possible by the Treasury Department’s decision in January to lift sanctions on Rusal and other companies owned by Oleg Deripaska — a Russian oligarch and Kremlin ally accused of facilitating Moscow’s nefarious activities. “As a rapidly growing business headquartered in the Commonwealth of Kentucky,

Two former top staffers to McConnell, now working for the firm Akin Gump, have also lobbied Congress and the Treasury Department on the development of the aluminum mill, on Wednesday August 2nd 2019. Akin Gump was hired by Braidy in May to help with the billion-dollar project, several months after the decision was made to lift the Rusal sanctions. A Braidy spokesperson emphasized that the Akin Gump lobbying efforts were unrelated to the sanctions decision. 

Here we have Mad Moscow Mitch caught red handed with Russian money in his pocket. When will the republicans stop taking money from the Russian? When the American people realize Trump & McConnell are political puppets for the Russians and the enemy of the American people and our way of life.
