'There is no violation, ' the first-term lawmaker told Fox News as she arrived in Washington, D.C. for a day when votes in the House are scheduled. Eric Trump called Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "absolutely insane".
It is unclear in the filing who profited from the payments, according to the Post.
Rep. Alexanadria Ocasio-Cortez is denying any violation in campaign finance law after a conservative watchdog group filed a complaint charging that her top aide funneled $1 million in contributions from a PAC he controlled to his own companies.
Whether the activities of the PACs or the company violated campaign finance law, or whether the complaint has any merit, will be matters for the FEC to decide.
Chakrabarti did not return a request for comment.
"We were transparent about it from the start", he said Tuesday on Twitter.
In early 2017, Saikat Chakrabarti, one of the PAC's board members and former director of organizing technology for the Sanders campaign, teamed with another Sanders campaigner, Zack Exley, as well as Cenk Uygur and Kyle Kulinski from the Young Turks leftist media company, to found Justice Democrats. "The ONLY way to do work for multiple candidates legally at this scale is to create an LLC and act as a vendor", the group said.
FEC records show that during the 2018 election cycle, the Brand New Congress PAC, the Justice Democrats PAC, and the campaign committee for Ocasio-Cortez's election paid a total of $886,000 to a private entity with an address in Knoxville, Tennessee, called "Brand New Congress LLC", all for what the committees described as "strategic consulting".

PACs are required to report names and addresses of all people who paid more than $200 to "meet a candidate or committee operating expense" as well as the goal of the payments.
Critics said the arrangement appears unusual and should be probed.
For that reason, they set up an LLC that served as the vehicle to pay staff and bill campaigns for services. "Was it legitimate or not?"
He said the political committees did not disclose who ultimately received money from the LLC because Federal Election Commission staffers told the corporation that it did not have to provide those details.
"Representative Ocasio-Cortez has been quite vocal in condemning so-called dark money, but her own campaign went to great lengths to avoid the sunlight of disclosure", Anderson alleged.
"This is the very thing that hides a lot of money", Chaffetz said of the arrangement outlined in the complaint.
"Additionally, on Ocasio-Cortez's political Instagram page, she directly links to her official House Instagram account and includes a link for political contributions, alongside the posts of official video footage and her comments on official action".
