(FixThisNation.com) – The Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched a probe into the campaign spending of Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.). On Tuesday the congresswoman confirmed the investigation which was mainly focused on her spending on security services and argued that she was “fully cooperating” with the probe. She has also denied that she has done anything wrong.
In her public statement, Bush started by noting firstly that she held herself to the “highest level of integrity” and that she was a big believer in transparency. She added that this was the reason she had completely complied with the Justice Department’s request to review her campaign spending on security services. She added that they were completely cooperating with the investigation and that they wanted to take this opportunity to talk about the facts of this case.
The statement was published by Bush’s campaign account and came only one day after the House clerk had disclosed that the office of the House sergeant at arms had also received a subpoena to provide documentation to the DOJ for an investigation. There has not been any information made available regarding the exact request in the subpoena.
On Tuesday, Bush also disclosed that the House Ethics Committee and the Federal Election Commission (FEC) had launched investigations into her campaign and that she was fully cooperating with both.
The complaint with the FEC was originally filed by the non-partisan ethics watchdog Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) calling for Bush to be investigated for potentially having used campaign funds for personal reasons.
