Criminal Probe Launched Into Death Of McConnell’s Sister-In-Law

(Congressional Agenda) – The strange death of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s sister-in-law is now being investigated as a crime. The body of Angela Chao, 50, was discovered in a vehicle on Feb. 11th that was submerged in “a pond on a private ranch in Johnson City, Texas, about 40 miles from Austin,” a piece published by CNBC divulged.

Local law enforcement authorities do not believe the vehicle entered the pond due to an accident.

“This incident was not a typical accident,” the Blanco County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) is said to have written in a letter Thursday addressed to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

“Although the preliminary investigation indicated this was an unfortunate accident, the Sheriff’s Office is still investigating this accident as a criminal matter until they have sufficient evidence to rule out criminal activity,” they continued, according to BizPac Review.

At this point, because her death is currently under investigation, the BCSO cannot release “reports, 911 logs, audio and video evidence,” that those in the media would be interested in covering.

“Releasing the reports, videos and other information prior to the completion of the investigation would interfere with the investigation and possible prosecution of this matter,” the sheriff’s office went on to say about the matter.

There are a lot of weird circumstances surrounding Chao’s death, starting with the fact that the BCSO’s current conclusion, that some sort of foul play was involved, is a far cry different than their initial report following the body’s discovery a month ago.

“Our preliminary investigation has determined this to be an unfortunate accident. The investigation is ongoing at this time,” the office first stated back on Feb. 16th, as per CNBC.

The ranch where she was found is “owned by a corporate entity connected to her husband, venture capitalist Jim Breyer, who has an office in Austin.”

“Chao was, prior to her death, the CEO of the Foremost Group, a company launched by her and her sister’s (McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao) mother and father. When McConnell announced last week that he’d step down as the Senate Republican leader sometime later this year, he mentioned his sister-in-law’s death,” BPR noted.

“This has been a particularly difficult time for my family,” he remarked during his speech. “We tragically lost Elaine’s younger sister Angela, just a few weeks ago. When you lose a loved one, particularly at a young age, there’s a certain introspection that accompanies the grieving process.”

“Since Chao’s death, conspiracies have emerged linking her passing to the Chinese Communist Party. It’s a fact that Chao had been the chair of the Bank of China’s U.S. Risk and Management Committee. The bank admitted as much in an obituary published on Feb. 13th,” the repot continued.

Even more disturbing is that the Pentagon recently added Chao’s husband’s company, IDG Capital, to a list of companies they believe as having deep connections to the Chinese military.

“While being placed on the list doesn’t involve immediate bans, it can be a blow to designated companies’ reputations and represents a stark warning to U.S. entities and companies about the risks of conducting business with them while adding pressure on the Treasury Department to sanction them,” Reuters wrote.

IDG Capital has maintained their innocence.

“We are not a Chinese military company, nor do we have any association with the Chinese military, and we do not belong on this watch list,” a spokesperson commented in a statement given to Bloomberg.

“We are an international investment firm with investments in China and other parts of the world. We have a robust governance and compliance program in place to ensure we comply with all applicable laws in all jurisdictions in which we operate,” they disclosed.

Many on social media are not convinced:

Keep McConnell and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
