Here is where it gets really corrupt and scary...

nytimes.com/2017/03/31/wor…
"..the stalled $3.6 billion Myitsone dam project and a controversial copper mine allegedly linked to human rights abuses—all Chinese projects inked with the junta that once ruled the country—are deeply unpopular."

@TheLeadCNN @jaketapper Please read the entire 100+ articles attached to this thread. It is not in order or organized as I wanted to get them all listed. Everything is connected and lead right to a small area called The Iron Range in MN. It is corruption on FULL DISPLAY! #help
This is a list of tailing pond failures, this is not an exhausted list.

This guy owns majority share in Glencore/Qatar Investment Authority, which is the ONLY and main funder of PolyMet. Now how is he going to get around those dang sanctions- Trump Corruption Squad to the rescue, oh wait, not so fast...

Quote from article scares me, "One complaint filed in Delaware cast Mr. Deripaska as a member of a criminal gang that seized control of an iron-ore mining complex in the Ural Mountains in the late 1990s..."

@amyklobuchar @SenTinaSmith @Tim_Walz @BettyMcCollum04 @SenWhitehouse I hope to GOD you people are NOT going to allow this war criminal zealot to mine in the US, specifically the Iron Range? If you allow this, you are complicit in crimes against humanity!

Learn about tailing ponds. Listen people there is a serious threat to one of the largest clean water resources in the WORLD in MN. Foreign Oligarch's that are shady AF are trying to build SULFER mine on the edge of this #cleanwater resource. @amyklobuchar
