The House Committee on Ethics is investigating Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), according to a statement the panel issued on Wednesday.
Details about the subject of the inquiry were not provided. The nonpartisan Office of Congressional Ethics forwarded its inquiry into Ocasio-Cortez to the House ethics panel in June, according to the report. Typically, when that office forwards an investigation, it’s because it has reason to believe an ethics law was broken.
Spokespeople for Ocasio-Cortez did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The statement, which was attributed to acting Chair Susan Wild (D-Penns.) and Ranking Member Michael Guest (R-Miss.) notes that the disclosure of investigation “does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the committee.”
