Rashida Tlaib is freaking out after getting news that could put her behind bars
Along with her pal Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
In fact, she keeps getting herself deeper and deeper into it.
And now she is freaking out after getting news that could put her behind bars.
Tlaib is currently under investigation for receiving payments from her campaign while running for office in 2016, and for continuing to take money from her campaign after the election.
While taking a salary from a campaign is allowed, there are a lot of requirements that must be met.
But her taking money from the campaign outside of an election violates federal law, according to many sources familiar with her case.
Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz wrote about her situation in a Fox News op-ed, where he states that this case will prove whether Democrats are serious about nobody being above the law.
Chaffetz wrote in a Fox News article:
“Freshman House Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., reportedly received payments from her campaign while running for office in 2016. While such unusual arrangements can be legal under narrow guidelines during the campaign season, Tlaib allegedly continued to take money from the campaign after the election, potentially violating federal law. Any payments prior to the election also must meet stringent requirements regarding legitimate campaign expenses.
In a report last week, the Board of the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) announced that the House Ethics Committee would extend its investigation into Tlaib after finding “substantial reason to believe” she violated campaign finance laws.
It was unusual and significant that specific documentation, including emails from Tlaib, was released to the public.”
The former Congressman finished the article by stating that Tlaib should comply with any investigation, adding that this investigation could truly prove whether the Democrat talking point of “nobody is above the law” extends to members of “the Squad.”
Of course, Democrats have been using the statement “nobody is above the law” to justify their impeachment efforts.
They believe that Trump should be in prison for crimes that they can’t prove.
But they are silent on the real crimes of Tlaib.
