Illinois Congressman Bobby Rush (D)

Two Chicago police officers on Thursday were cleared of racial profiling allegations filed by left-wing Congressman Bobby Rush (D-IL) after a traffic stop that occurred in August 2015.

After the Chicago Police Department's Bureau of Internal Affairs reviewed the officers' body camera footage, it was determined that the officers had probable cause to pull over the Congressman, Fox 32 News reported Thursday.

The officers stopped Rush because the license plates on his Lexus RX450h were registered to a Cadillac.

Within an hour of being stopped, Rush filed a complaint to the department saying he was pulled over because of the color of his skin.
