WASHINGTON — In a bizarre twist of politics, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is charging the Sen. Ted Cruz tried to have her killed during the Washington, D.C. protests.

Cruz tweeted that he agreed with Ocasio-Cortez about the need to probe the stock trading site Robin Hood, after it restricted some forms of trading.

She responded she would not work with Cruz because he tried to have her murdered. She has called for Cruz to resign from office because he charged election fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

“I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response. “Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed. In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign.”

Rep. Chip Roy has demanded Ocasio-Cortez apologize for comments she made slamming Cruz.

In a letter addressed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Roy said that it had “come to his attention” that the interaction between Cruz and Ocasio-Cortez had taken place.

“It has come to my attention that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent out a tweet a few hours ago in which she accused Senator Ted Cruz, in essence, of attempted murder,” Roy wrote.

“As a member of this body who disagreed with ‘objections’ to the electors and who has expressed publicly my concerns about the events leading to January 6, it is completely unacceptable behavior for a Member of Congress to make this kind of scurrilous charge against another member in the House or Senate for simply engaging in speech and debate regarding electors as they interpreted the Constitution,” he continued.

  1. Remember this:

    At a 2018 rally, Maxine Waters (D-CA) encouraged her supporters to harass officials in the Trump administration over Trump’s immigration policies. There is actual video of this.

    “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” she said at the California rally. “And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

    This is actual PROOF of the calling of harm to a person/persons. How come Maxine didn’t get called out? Was that ok then, if so why, because she’s a woman, a democrat, or something else?

    What about when Steve Scalise was shot after Bernie Sanders made a comment ( no report here ), and when Rand Paul was attacked, he suffered 6 broken ribs…

    Where is AOC’s proof? You can’t accuse without evidence…….
