There Seems a Better Reason for SDNY to Investigate Ocasio-Cortez than President Trump

The Department of Justice has zealously investigated President Trump for the myth of "Russian meddling" for over two years. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York has stretched federal election laws far beyond their reasonable boundaries to criminalize a payment to an alleged paramour, a personal expense.  Chairman Cummings hosted a known liar as his star witness.  Chairman Nadler has decided to substitute himself for the FBI, issuing over 80 investigative requests for information about the President.  Once he realized, to his chagrin, there was no "Russian collusion" finding forthcoming from Mr. Mueller, Chairman Schiff announced a broadened probe into the President's business affairs. 

The 29-year-old leader of the most radical (but increasingly controlling) wing of the Democratic Party, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, has been giddy about the whole set of investigations.  She has bragged about how thoroughly she and her colleagues plan to investigate to the President and taken a leading role in speaking about pending and planned inquiries.
But now the shoe is on the other foot.  The young Congresswoman, it turns out, may have violated campaign finance laws to the tune of millions of dollars.  She is facing complaints alleging that she made personal use of campaign funds and purposely set up an LLC scheme to hide disbursements -- possibly payments to her boyfriend. And there are allegations she was instrumental in designing a massive $3 million in-kind contribution scheme to support her own campaign and the campaigns of others.
Former FEC Commissioners Hans von Spakovsky, Brad Smith, and Lee Goodman (member of the RNLA Board of Governors) have explained how the Congresswoman's conduct may have violated the law.  As former Commissioner von Spakovsky wrote:

We don’t know at this point if the New York congresswoman has engaged in improper conduct. But she and her chief of staff and former campaign manager Saikat Chakrabarti are accused of serious charges in a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) by the National Legal and Policy Center.

The accusations against Ocasio-Cortez are ironic because she has criticized the use of untraceable money in political campaigns and portrayed herself as a champion of campaign finance reform. Her Twitter biography says she is “100% people funded, no corporate PAC $.”

In addition, Ocasio-Cortez is a big supporter of HR 1, a bill with numerous new campaign finance law requirements that would severely restrict and burden political activity and speech. . . .

As a former FEC commissioner who has studied the complaint against Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti, I have concluded that there is unquestionably more than enough evidence to justify the FEC opening a civil investigation. And there’s also enough evidence for the U.S. Justice Department to seriously consider opening a criminal investigation.

Now the question is: will the DOJ and SDNY investigate the Congresswoman with the same zeal and broad view of the law that they have exhibited in the President's case?  Will the FEC investigate the Congresswoman's alleged role in setting up this claimed scheme?  Will Chairmen Cummings, Nadler and Schiff turn a blind eye to the alleged violations by one of their own?
