AOC’s Chief of Staff Resigns

Not one, but two of AOC’s top aides will be leaving her office in the coming weeks after federal probes are expected to be launched into her campaign.

Saikat Chakrabarti will be leaving Ocasio-Cortez’s side as her chief of staff on Friday. He will then begin work for New Consensus, a nonprofit company, in an attempt to give aide to the Green New Deal as well as other climate change initiatives.

In addition, AOC’s communications director, Corbin Trent, will be departing her congressional office. Although, he is not expected to go very far, as the New York congresswoman has asked him to join her for the 2020 campaign for the same role.

AOC told The Intercept that he is “shifting to our campaign side so we can work on some ambitious comms projects we’ve been looking forward to working on.”

It is unsure exactly when Trent will leave her office, but he has mentioned that he plans to finish out the month of August there.

The announcement of not one but two of her top aides leaving in such close succession leaves many to believe that something else is going on within the office. And those suspicions have not gone unwarranted.

But not for the reasons that many may assume.

Chakrabarti is no stranger to the criticism that abounds within Congress and was recently publicly humiliated after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi chastised him for making tweets and segregationist remarks about herself and other congressional members and his outrage for their compromise on specific plans.

In June he tweeted that Pelosi and other moderate Democrats seemed “hell-bent to do to black and brown people today what the old southern Democrats did in the 40s.”

Pelosi admonished the remarks and the use of public discourse about such matters, with many people believing she would call for his resignation.

However, it seems he is resigning for an entirely different matter.

Soon after the resignation announcement, the New York Post reported that a federal probe is likely to be launched into both men on allegations of mishandling campaign finances.

The probe will look into two political action committees (PACs) that were founded and run by Chakrabarti, who is the mastermind behind AOC’s surprise election last year and is the frontrunner of her Green New Deal climate change proposal. Both PACs – Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats – were meant to bring support to progressive candidates all across the nation.

However, according to federal campaign filings from 2016-2017 and a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission in March, nearly a third of the funds raised during that time were transferred to two private companies owned by the outspoken Chakrabarti.

It is estimated that over $1 million of the $3.3 million in political donations brought in had been funneled to Brand New Congress LLC and Brand New Campaign LLC, his companies with strikingly similar names to the PACs.

PACs are required to follow stringent federal regulations related to fundraising and spending; however, in contrast, the rules for LLCs are much more relaxed and not nearly as black and white. According to the complaint, it appears the LLCs had been set up to obscure federal reporting requirements.

In addition, it seems that the campaign also violated the $5000 contributions limit from federal PACs to candidates. When AOC took office in January of this year, she helped change the salary rules of federal employees that affected her staff. And it is believed by many that those new rules were put in place so that her chief of staff could successfully redistribute funding elsewhere without being noticed.

While her junior staffers’ salaries were raised to $52,000 a year, Chakrabarti appears to have taken a rather substantial pay cut. The average pay for his position is $146,830 annually, and yet, the tech millionaire and Harvard graduate only received $80,000.

  1. AOC is a complete embarrassment to her office and entirely unqualified. So undeserving of citizens dollars. Such a mystery as to how elected USA is better than this .

  2. No question or doubt in my mind with regard to where that campaign money ended up! What is really telling is the fact the Democrats want to see Trumps tax returns while there is so much corruption and money bring taken for personal use by these left wing polititians i.e. Demonrats. I just hope and pray that Barr uncovers the evidence he needs to shut them down and lock them up. Trump 2020 Keep America Great.

  3. AOC is just one of the most ignorant hateful socialist dangerous person on the planet. I cannot believe anyone on this earth would follow this idiot. She needs to go back to fixing drinks as she surely most be better doing that. I am aware Trump says things at times that should be left unsaid but I cannot think of one thing he has done as far as passing and implementing the things he has done. He is not elected in 2020 we will be in serious trouble by the socialist. Socialism has worked no where in the world. Ask anyone that has lived under it.

  4. I departed NYC, where I grew up and lived for a time in the fall of 1967. From my viewpoint, the place, unlike red wines, has not improved with age.

  5. Saikat Chakrabarti is a homosexual who has sex with Cenk Uygur and other libtards! AOC is a lesbian who has nonstop orgies with many women!

  6. She whined about not being able to afford a place to live in DC Guess we know how she is affording the expensive apartment and clothes now

  7. He and the others that work for her as well as she herself are just more Communists to deal with. These people must be stopped as they want to destroy the best country around. She nor her people deserve what they get paid when they spend their time tearing up all that is good. They do this for power not for the good of the people.

  8. INVESTIGATE ALL THE DEMOCRATS, THEY ARE ALL IN CORRUPTION MODE, AND TERRORIST INSTIGATING MODE, USING THE ISLAMIST TERRORIST TACTICS. THIS IS THE REASON EL PASO, TEXAS and OHIO ENDED UP WITH THE SHOOTINGS.
    Every Democrat keeps on blaming ALL and EVERYTHING, on Our President, the Media, the Democrats, the Liberals, ALL Democrats WANNA BE’S (President), which is ALL sewer crap, lies, and fake information. Granted, maybe our president has stated some things, which have been out of the ordinary, but have been FACTS, in my book. Example, ” telling the democrat Squad, that if they did not like our country to go back to where they came from “. Nothing RACIST ABOUT THAT!! But the Democrats playing the RACE Card, made it to be of race, and color. Reason being … and FACTS, in Our Country, such is, even in the 21st century a sensitive issue, and CONGRESS DEMOCRATS, are using such as A RACE CARD. FACT!! The REAL FACT IS … ALL of THE ABOVE, are all thinking of their own selves, NOT COUNTRY OR PEOPLE. They are ALL thinking INSIDE OF THEIR LITTLE HATE BOX, without thinking OUT SIDE OF THAT BOX. Because of THE HATE, they have for Our President, because of losing the 2016 election, their Power Over Our Country and People, losing control of The Black Vote, The Hispanic vote, the Asian vote as this people got educated and got WISE … to the Democrats slavery tactics, keeping them poor with FOOD STAMPS, and GOVERNMENT WELFARE. SHOW ME, how many people have advanced, improved themselves, and made a better future or improved themselves on such. FACT.. NONE!!
    THINKING OUT SIDE OF THE DEMOCRATS SEWER CRAP HATE BOX. THIS INCIDENT WAS CREATED BY THE DEMOCRATS, THEIR ADMINISTRATION’S FOUR HORSEWOMEN, THE SQUAD. THEY ARE THE INSTIGATORS, THEY ARE THE CAUSE, OF THIS HATE CRIME COMING TO EL PASO, THEY ARE THE HITLER’S YOUTH. THEY TOO … ARE OUTSIDERS!!
    HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THEM, THEIR SEWER CRAP LIES, FALSE AND FAKE INFORMATION THEY PUT OUT THAT ALL WE HAD AT THE BORDER WAS HITLER’S CONCENTRATION CAMPS. THIS HATE CRIME INCIDENT WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED.
    They can point fingers, blame this and that …. THESE DEMOCRATS SHOULD CLEAN THEIR OWN HOUSE, AND BACKYARD, TRASH AND RAT INFESTATIONS, BEFORE THEY TRY TO CLEAN SOME ONE ELSE’S. This are the things they should be worried about, in THEIR OWN CITIES, TAKING CARE OF THEIR OWN PEOPLE, AND AREAS, NOT OUR BORDER. IF THEY CARE ABOUT CHILDREN, WHICH THEY DON’T!! They would TAKE CARE OF THIS RAT INFESTED AREAS AND THESE CHILDREN, but have they done anything about that????!!! HELL NO!!

  18. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!| а
