The Federal government is reportedly investigating Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ former Chief of Staff following his abrupt resignation this week; raising new questions over his role in her election and creation of the ‘Green New Deal.’
“The feds are looking into possible campaign finance misdeeds by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff and lead rainmaker, who suddenly resigned Friday,” reports the New York Post. “The inquiry centers on two political action committees founded by Saikat Chakrabarti, the top aide who quit along with Ocasio-Cortez spokesman Corbin Trent, the sources said. Trent left to join the congresswoman’s 2020 re-election campaign.”
“The brash Chakrabarti, who masterminded Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign and steered her proposed Green New Deal, had caused uproar in the halls of Congress with a series of combative tweets that contributed to a rift between his rookie boss and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,” adds the Post.
Saikat Chakrabarti made a stunning admission last month; telling the Washington Post the controversial ‘Green New Deal’ is not “a climate thing” but an effort to change “the entire economy.”
Chakrabarti made the surprising statement in a recent interview; spilling the beans on the origins of AOC’s ‘New Deal.’
“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.”
“Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing,” he added.
