Trump Signals White House Won’t Comply With Democratic Probes

5

President Trump on Tuesday signaled the White House will not comply with a barrage of congressional investigations, accusing Democrats in the House of launching the probes to hurt his chances of winning reelection in 2020.

“It’s a disgrace to our country. I’m not surprised that it’s happening. Basically, they’ve started the campaign. So the campaign begins,” Trump told reporters at the White House after signing an executive order on veterans’ suicide prevention.

“Instead of doing infrastructure, instead of doing health care, instead of doing so many things that they should be doing, they want to play games,” he continued.

  1. (Gateway Pundit) – According to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Committee Monday (FEC), two PACs founded by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide, Saikat Chakrabarti funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, reported the Washington Examiner.
    So much for Ocasio-Cortez’s promise to reduce “dark money” in politics!
    According to a complaint filed by government watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center, it appears Chakrabarti set up his two companies for the sole purpose of hiding how the donations were used.
    Chakrabarti founded the two PACs in question in 2016 and 2017.
    Brand New Congress was founded in 2016 and Justice Democrats was founded in 2017 with the end goal of getting ultra progressive candidates elected to Congress — ultimately these two PACs helped radical Communist Ocasio-Cortez win a Congressional seat last November.
    Chakrabarti AND Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are in SERIOUS TROUBLE!

  2. According to the Daily Caller Foundation AOC and her Chief of Staff may face serious JAIL TIME!
    Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the FEC that she and Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign, and former FEC commissioners say the arrangement could lead to multiple campaign finance violations. The group backed 12 Democrats during the 2018 midterms, but Ocasio-Cortez was the only one of those to win her general election.
    “If the facts as alleged are true, and a candidate had control over a PAC that was working to get that candidate elected, then that candidate is potentially in very big trouble and may have engaged in multiple violations of federal campaign finance law, including receiving excessive contributions,” former Republican FEC commissioner Hans von Spakovsky told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
    And fellow former FEC commissioner Brad Smith told TheDCNF that if “a complaint were filed, I would think it would trigger a serious investigation.” He also noted that such a probe could potentially result in jail time for Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Chakrabarti.
    Normally Feisty AOC Goes Silent On Campaign Scandal Accusations Hours After Promoting Her Own Bravery For Confronting “Fake” Attacks
    The normally combative Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is usually playing offense on Twitter, mixing it up with people who try to attack her. She’s not familiar with shyness or timidity.
    That’s why it’s striking how quiet she’s been since charges surfaced that her “Chief of Staff Ran Slush Fund – Funneled Over $1 Million in Campaign Donations to His Own Companies”
    Yikes! That’s a hell of a charge. AOC should be all over this, right?
    NOPE.
    Since the story broke at around 3:30pm here is what AOC has had time to urgently tweet about, other than the 800lb scandal in the room.
