Daines Continues Skirting Questions as House Energy and Commerce Committee Investigates his Former Aide Mike Gula
Daines has paid Gula nearly $500,000 since 2018, including almost $50,000 in February, but has refused to answer questions about his relationship with Gula or whether he helped leverage his standing as “China’s ambassador in Congress” to assist Blue Flame in partnering with a subsidiary of a Chinese government-owned company.
“The facts are clear — Senator Daines’ former aide built a sham company to capitalize on a global pandemic,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “As more states cancel their contracts with Blue Flame and investigations mount, Daines continues to skirt questions about his involvement with this profiteering scheme, and whether he was one of the ‘relationships’ Gula leveraged. Montanans deserve answers.”
