AOC’s Harrowing Survivor’s Tale of US Capitol Siege Omits a Key Detail: Her Office Isn’t There

'You almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out...'

In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 uprising at the US Capitol, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez, D-NY, promoted a harrowing tale of cowering in fear as the violent dissidents closed in.

She claimed to have taken refuge in a bathroom after slamming shut the office door while hearing crowds outside yell “Where is she?”

However, the “Squad” leader left out a few key details—including the fact that her office is not in the US Capitol, according to RedState.

Ocasio–Cortez’s office is actually in the Cannon House Office Building, a 6-minute walk due south of the National Mall.

In fact, the people looking for her may have been Capitol Police seeking to protect her.

The building may have been evacuated not because of the roving hordes of Trump supporters on the Capitol grounds but because of its closer proximity to the Republican National Committee, where a pipe bomb—planted the night before—was detected and ultimately detonated.

But after one officer entered Ocasio–Cortez’s office to render assistance in relocating, the congresswoman refused, saying she distrusted the officer—and a staffer reportedly even threatened to fight him.

“It didn’t feel right, um, because he was looking at me with a tremendous amount of anger and hostility,” AOC acknowledged in an online video posted to social media.

She went on to deride law enforcement, even though one police officer gave his life while defending against the unruly crowd and another subsequently committed suicide.

“Like so many other communities in this country, just that presence doesn’t necessarily give you a signal if you’re safe or not,” Ocasio–Cortez said.

Although downplaying the sacrifices of law-enforcement, she has continued to hype up the mortal danger she faced from her vantage point, roughly five full-length football fields away from the main action.

After Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted support for Ocasio–Cortez’s call to hold Wall Street accountable in the wake of a recent short-squeeze scandal, she accused him in a lengthy rant of “trying to get me killed” and demanded he step down from the evenly-split Senate.

She went on to accuse Cruz of “clout-chasing” by attempting to engage with her on the social-media forum.
