AOC Says She Didn't Feel Safe With White Supremacists Congress Members During Capitol Hill Breach
During an Instagram livestream, AOC told viewers about a “traumatizing event” that left her shaken.
“I can tell you that I had a very close encounter where I thought I was going to die,” she said, and while she said she couldn’t go into specifics because of security reasons, she added, “I did not know if I was going to make it to the end of that day alive.”
Ocasio-Cortez also revealed that she didn’t feel safe when she was instructed to shelter with other members 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 have felt would disclose my location and would create opportunities to allow me to be hurt, kidnapped, et cetera.”
“So I didn’t even feel safe around other members of Congress,” AOC said.
