(Source: Daily Caller) Democratic Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez and her top aide are no longer board members of the outside PAC credited with orchestrating her political rise, according to a corporate document filed Friday to a Washington, D.C., agency.

The New York Democrat and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, joined the board of Justice Democrats in December 2017, according to the political action committee’s website. It also said the two held “legal control over the entity” at the same time it was playing a key role in supporting Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign prior to her shock victory over incumbent Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in June 2018.

Attorneys for Ocasio-Cortez said she was removed from Justice Democrats’ board in June 2018, but she was listed an “entity governor” of the PAC as recently as March 14, according to corporate filings, The Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported.

Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti were officially removed from Justice Democrats’ board on March 15, according to a corporate document filed that day to the Washington, D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.

It’s unclear why it took Justice Democrats more than eight months to formally remove Ocasio-Cortez from its board. The PAC did not respond to a request for comment.

Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) that she and Chakrabarti controlled Justice Democrats while it simultaneously supported her primary campaign.

If the FEC finds that her campaign and the PAC were operating in affiliation, it could result in “massive reporting violations” or potentially even jail time for Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti, former FEC Commissioner Brad Smith previously told TheDCNF.

Another former FEC commissioner, Hans von Spakovsky, wrote in a March 10 Fox News op-ed that he believes there’s sufficient evidence to “justify opening a criminal investigation” into Ocasio-Cortez.

Alexandra Rojas and Demond Drummer replaced Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti on Justice Democrats’ board. Both have close ties to the congresswoman.

Rojas, Justice Democrats’ executive director, was a field organizer for the Ocasio-Cortez campaign in 2018 while she was also serving as campaign director for the PAC. Chakrabarti preceded Rojas as executive director.

Drummer is the executive director of New Consensus, a nonprofit group that played a key role in developing the Green New Deal.

The Green New Deal was written in a single weekend in December by New Consensus, Justice Democrats and Ocasio-Cortez staffers, along with the Sunrise Movement, a climate advocacy organization.

“We spent the weekend learning how to put laws together,” Chakrabarti told The New Yorker in January. “We looked up how to write resolutions.”

    Any hint of wrongdoing and a full-scale investigation into it is demanded. She is no better than the president of the U.S. and deserves to be brought to justice.

    She’s a democrat, she got elected…end of story. For them and their lapdogs the end always justifies the means regardless of ethics and laws.

    A full scale investigation is warranted. Leave no rock unturned. You do the crime, you do the time. Oh, I forgot that doesn’t apply to Democrats does it.

    I have high hopes that criminal charges are coming. Hope is all I have because Democrats are soooo good at hiding crimes. Remember Bill Clinton? A blowjob is not sex. Just like a sanctuary city is not breaking the law that every politician vowed to uphold.
    It is still illegal to harbor a criminal right?

    LOCK HER UP!!
    How the hell did a bartender ever become a member of Congress anyway??
    She has been nothing but an embarrassment from the start.
    Make an example of her and show the other members of Congress that they are NOT above the law!

    She is so ignorant she makes a fool of herself almost every day. The people in the Democrat party are shying away from her. She needs to be investigated, interrogated by a committee, a criminal investigation should be started and throw the dumb so and so in jail!! Then she can preach to the other inmates til they get tired of her mouth & shut her up

    Piglosi will not do anything about it. She will just say that Ocasio did not intend to break the law and that she needs to make a false apology like her cohort did. It’s then pushed up under the rug. Business as usual.

    Call for a full investigation. Appoint a Special Counsel. Call in everyone that worked at the bar. Heck, call in everyone that she served at the bar. Let’s see her tax returns. Raid her mother’s house. Throw her into Solitary Confinement till she sings. Call for impeachment. Isn’t this how things are done? I hope that ugly little buck tooth gal goes to jail. She is too dumb to walk the streets.

    If, AOC goes to jail, her wealthy boyfriend will back her and him out.
    Once charged, AOC can rally the inmates on the Big New Green Deal on how to clean mold off their toilets.

    “It’s unclear why it took Justice Democrats more than eight months to formally remove Ocasio-Cortez from its board. The PAC did not respond to a request for comment”

    Gee, I wonder why they waited so long? could it be that they hoped this would all blow over if left alone long enough? Maybe they wanted to see if iut went away if they didn’t call attention to it? Typical Democrat shenanigans… they are always up to something…. every day they are trying to trick, fool, pretend, lie, misuse, abuse, scam, get over on everyone else!

    Would take a long time of investigating, but you’ll no doubt find that every front group named in this article makes it back to the funds of George Soros and democrat operatives with deep pockets and an agenda to bring down America.
    Ask yourself, how the hell does a fregging bartender from ‘the Bronx’ get her harebrained self elected to the senate, upsetting a democrat who’s been there (a centrist, it seems)for decades? The money, baby, the money buys everything. She AUDITIONED for this ‘part’, an actor (terrible) in this play of power for the socialist / commie agenda against America, along with 2 Jew and infidel hating muzlims, also with fishy activities in the background. Seems the majority of the ‘freshmen’ senators are of the same mind-set, far left, pro socialist.

      I am by no means a believer in the Democrat Party’s platform but what I am is a believer in the two party system. These Justice Democrats along with their cohorts, the Young Turks are a dangerous combination. If you go back into history the Young Turks were a murderous bunch. Notice the face of on the t-shirt that Chakrabarti wears. It’s the leader of that murderous faction. What worries me is the fact that they are making a play to take over the Democrat Party. That on the surface sounds good but it’s not. After the Democrats they may start in on the Republicans too. Then in essence we have a one party government and the people have NO say. It would be bad enough if they controlled only the Dems. Look them up. They are not hiding what they are doing. watch this and have your eyes opened- https://youtu.be/1h5iv6sECGU
