NEW: AOC’s Top Staffer Resigns – Radical Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti OUT Following Spat with House Democrats
Communist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top staffers are stepping down.
Saikat Chakrabarti, AOC’s Chief of Staff, and Corbin Trent, her Director of Communications — both radicals who work with Justice Democrats will be leaving her office, according to a report by The Intercept.
According to The Intercept, Saikat Chakrabarti will be working for a radical enviro-Nazi non-profit called New Consensus to promote the Green New Deal and Trent Corbin will be working communications for AOC’s 2020 reelection campaign.
“Saikat has decided to leave the office of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to work with New Consensus to further develop plans for a Green New Deal,” Trent said in a statement to The Intercept. “We are extraordinarily grateful for his service to advance a bold agenda and improve the lives of the people in NY-14. From his co-founding of Justice Democrats to his work on the Ocasio-Cortez campaign and in the official office, Saikat’s goal has always been to do whatever he can to help the larger progressive movement, and we look forward to continuing working with him to do just that.”
Chakrabarti’s last day is Friday, August 2, and Trent’s transition timeline is still unclear, Ocasio-Cortez told The Intercept. Trent told The Intercept he expects to continue serving as spokesperson through the end of August. Trent, who has been directing communications for the Ocasio-Cortez campaign part time since 2018, will now do so full time. Ariel Eckblad, Ocasio-Cortez’s legislative director, will take over as chief of staff.
Saikat Chakrabarti is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff. He also likes wearing his Subhas Chandra Bose T-shirt who was a famous Nazi sympathizer.
In June Saikat Chakrabarti compared moderate Democrats to southern racists.
A couple weeks ago the House Democrats SLAMMED Saikat Chakrabarti for trashing Rep. Sharice Davids.
This was shocking attack on AOC’s Chief of Staff.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even scolded AOC and her squad for firing off tweets rather than discussing issues with fellow Democrat lawmakers in private.
Ocasio-Cortez however claims that the shakeup in her staffing had nothing to do with their clash with the House Democrat leadership.
