Where was the witty “clapback”?
We’ve been waiting for Democratic Twitter tutor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to blame misogyny or climate change or something else for that FEC complaint alleging that two PACs funneled $1 million of campaign contributions into two of her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti’s private companies. A former FEC commissioner even told The Daily Caller that Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti could be facing jail time if prosecutors could find intent.
Fox News caught up with Ocasio-Cortez today, but she didn’t want to talk about the allegations.
AOC flees questions on allegations she may have violated campaign finance laws
Q: “Do you have any comment on the FEC violation filed against your office?”
AOC: “There is no violation…there’s no violation”
Q: “Do you think that’s a sign of you taking dark money?”
AOC: “No” pic.twitter.com/nIX6FSHyqE

When she is approached for question of a good nature and promoting herself she is all answers. Negative questions she has nothing to say.

The cocky talkative @AOC suddenly sounds meek.

Well, that is all settled then:) Not.

Well she flees the question, but I must say, for the first time ever, that I'm actually impressed. I am because she finally answers a question.

If she didn't' have time to race bait or pull the woman card….she must be nervous af

Pretty early in your career to be running from reporters.

She loves attention but it seems not this kind! See honey, you aren't immune from scrutiny. @AOC
— SmirkingCorgi⭐⭐⭐ (@StephanieRuff3) March 5, 2019
But she’s the boss!
The lips says “no violation” but the paper trail says different #LockHerUp

She doesn’t know one way or the other.

The best defense she seems to have is that she was completely ignorant of what was going on with her campaign finances, which doesn’t make us anxious to hand over $94 trillion for her Green New Deal.

Let's see how long she can take the kind of heat Trump has taken for 3 years.

Then why did you list your campaign headquarters in a shabby vacant looking building in Knoxville with multiple other Dem Candidates ?
— Billybob (@MrBillyBob2) March 5, 2019
Yeah, that did look awfully shady.

The guy who has filed the complaint to the FEC, Tom Anderson doesn’t mess around. His bio at the https://t.co/lmywpUHPx8 is stout

Now we see what @AOC is made of. Will she 1) Throw her Campaign Manager under the bus or 2) Get away with this? 3) Begin to "conform" to the ways of DC swamp, and learn to shut her pie whole b/c the spot light she shines eventually will shine on her?
All of the above. Politician

Who will go to jail for her? Her campaign Manager? She's heading for Monica Lewinsky land. All the shame and fame with none of the perqs.

The ONLY way AOC will be brought down is if Pelosi determines she is a liability for the Commie Party
— Lakerfanalways (@Lakerfanalways) March 5, 2019
You know damn good & well Pelosi rolled over on her.

I didn’t think this puppet would make it this long with out some sort of scandal. ?

Pay no attention to the theif behind the Green New Deal.

Looks like she was getting ready to leave on a jet plane. #GreenNewDealfraud
