Ocasio-Cortez Says She Feared for Her Life During Capitol Riot
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that she and other members of Congress “were nearly assassinated” during the siege and that she felt some of her colleagues would have willingly put her at risk.
Wednesday was an extremely traumatizing event. And it is not an exaggeration to say that many, many members of the House were nearly assassinated. We were very lucky that things happened within certain minutes that allowed members to escape the Cap— the House floor unharmed. But many of us nearly and narrowly escaped death. I myself did not even feel safe going to the, that extraction point because there were QAnon and white supremacist sympathizers and frankly, white supremacist members of Congress, in that extraction point, who I know and who I had felt would disclose my location and allow me to — who would create opportunities to allow me to be hurt.
