Free Parking -- Mitch McConnell, The "enemy within"?

This week's Free Parking examines McConnell's family and money ties. He's one dirty bird.

The story seems to begin in 2005 when Jim invested in Facebook and joined their board. At an international tech summit in 2009 he met Kremlin backed Yuri Milner, a Russian tech entrepreneur, along with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin-Salman (MBS).

Milner and Breyer began working together through Milner’s company, DST, and then circuitously, Milner bought stock and later a board seat at Facebook and Twitter. Consequently, Russia owns 8% of Facebook and 5% of Twitter with Putin’s agent on those social media boards.
