OOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Someone’s in trouuuuubbbbllleeeee!!

And his name is Saikat Chakrabarti, formerly Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff.

Here’s the scoop, via New York Post:

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, federal sources told The 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 Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

President Trump compared AOC to Evita, the former first lady of Argentina. Evita was a Nazi sympathizer.

AOC appeared to take the jab as a compliment.

AOC responded with a quote from Evita, herself:

“I know that, like every woman of the people, I have more strength than I appear to have.”

– Evita Perón

And another:

“I had watched for many years and seen how a few rich families held much of Argentina’s wealth and power in their hands. So the government brought in an eight hour working day, sickness pay and fair wages to give poor workers a fair go.”

– Evita Perón

Funny enough, Alexandria’s then-chief of staff was seen wearing a shirt that features a Nazi sympathizer.

From Daily Wire:

On Monday, it was pointed out that the chief of staff for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Saikat Chakrabarti, smilingly wore a T-shirt emblazoned with the picture of Nazi sympathizer Subhas Chandra Bose in a NowThis News video featuring Chakrabarti.
