In Less Than 12 Months, 3 Out Of 4 ‘Squad’ Members Are Under Financial Investigation

Trump’s war with the squad left America separated on two sides one that supports his comment and others that label them as racists.

President Donald Trump’s attacks on the Democratic congresswomen known as “the squad” prompted an outcry from Democrats and several Republicans to condemn the remarks.

But why the mainstream media is attacking our President when the Squad members are the ones that are not clean!

As the Daily Caller reported the three most prolific members of the so-called “squad” of freshman Democratic congresswoman face allegations of violating campaign finance laws and House ethics rules for their personal or political benefit 10 months into their terms.

Below are the Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaints and House ethics inquiries that have been filed against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan since they took Washington, D.C., by storm in January with the promise of bringing about a more equitable and just world.

Ilhan Omar

The Minnesota Campaign Finance Board is investigating Omar after Minnesota GOP State Rep. Steve Drazkowski filed two complaints alleging she spent nearly $6,000 in campaign funds for personal use, including payments to her divorce attorney, while she served in the Minnesota legislature, reported WJLA.

According to her limited bio on Wikipedia, Omar divorced her second husband Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2017. Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is allegedly her brother. The two were married on February 12, 2009.

quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

And now she is suspected of using campaign donations to pay for the divorce—from her brother.

FEC records also revealed that Omar’s campaign had disbursed tens of thousands of dollars in “travel expenses” to Tim Mynett’s company, E. Street Group, LLC.

Omar’s campaign began making travel payments to Tim Mynett’s company on April 1, about a week before his wife alleged in her divorce filing that he admitted to having an affair with the congresswoman.

Tim Mynett has been pictured traveling with Omar across the country in recent months. In one picture, obtained by the Daily Mail, the two were holding hands.

Rashida Tlaib

House Ethics Panel Recommends Subpoena Over Rashida Tlaib’s Campaign Payments

The five members of the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) board voted unanimously in November to recommend the House Ethics Committee continue its investigation into whether Tlaib improperly diverted campaign funds for her personal use.

House rules allow candidates to receive a salary from their campaign up to what they earned the year prior to their campaign; however, they’re only allowed to receive such payments until the date of their election.

Tlaib had received over $17,500 from her campaign after her election victory in November 2018 in an apparent violation of House rules.

“If Rep. Tlaib converted campaign funds from Rashida Tlaib for Congress to personal use, or if Rep. Tlaib’s campaign committee expended funds that were not attributable to bona fide campaign or political purposes, then Rep. Tlaib may have violated House rules, standards of conduct, and federal law,” OCE said.

OCE said Tlaib and her staffers refused interviews to discuss the suspect salary payments.

Tlaib has denied wrongdoing and said in a statement she “received the minimum salary payments necessary for me to meet my personal financial obligations.”

Ocasio-Cortez

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her congressional campaign are facing scrutiny after a conservative group filed a Federal Elections Commission complaint alleging that they committed significant campaign finance law violations.

While Ocasio-Cortez’s team has denied all wrongdoing, legal experts tell INSIDER that while there’s no clear evidence of serious legal violations, there could be reason to investigate.

Ocasio-Cortez and her former campaign chair Saikat Chakrabarti were appointed to hold two of the PAC’s three board seats in December 2017, but the Federal Election Commission was never notified of the affiliation between her campaign and Justice Democrats.

The conservative National Legal and Policy Center filed an FEC complaint this week alleging that Ocasio-Cortez’s team used two affiliated political action committees to funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars into a limited-liability company to evade campaign finance laws.

The FEC is currently investigating the complaints filed against Ocasio-Cortez and Justice Democrats. Ocasio-Cortez confirmed in August that she’s been in conversation with the FEC, saying that she was “in total compliance” and dismissing the complaints as “a form of legal trolling” from “fringe, Republican groups.”
