[Ed. – It looks like he’s going all-in for Bernie. He was with Sanders’s campaign in 2016 and apparently is now full time with them. Not sure why Trent scrubbed his Twitter affiliation with AOC, however. He was with Justice Democrats – radical group – before managing Ocasio-Cortez’s communications strategy for the 2018 campaign. This sudden move just as the regular old Democrats are all-ahead-full for Biden looks like something more than a 2016 snuff-out for Sanders being envisioned, in the Sanders ranks. I don’t count on them going quietly.]
A top adviser to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has abruptly left her campaign, The Post has learned.
The freshman lawmaker’s campaign spokesman, Corbin Trent, revealed his surprise departure when a reporter contacted him for comment on Sunday.
His affiliation with AOC was also scrubbed from his Twitter account. …
Trent, 31, is a co-founder of Justice Democrats, the progressive political action committee that recruited and backed Ocasio-Cortez’s successful insurgency that toppled Crowley and backs other leftist primary challengers against incumbents deemed too tied to the status quo and monied interests.
