REPORT: House Dems Consider Restraining Order Against Marjorie Greene for AOC

'I refuse to allow young women...to see this kind of intimidation attempts by a person who supports white supremacists...'

House Democrat leaders are reportedly discussing the possibility of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, filing a restraining order against Rep. Marjorie Greene, R-Ga., after Greene verbally confronted Ocasio-Cortez following a congressional vote.

Top Democrats are looking into whether it would be possible for Ocasio-Cortez to seek a restraining order, since both women work in Congress and will be in the House chamber at the same time throughout their terms.

If such a move is legal, Ocasio-Cortez would have to file the order herself, according to Politico.

Greene confronted Ocasio-Cortez earlier this month and asked her to explain why she supports Black Lives Matter and Antifa “terrorists.”

Ocasio-Cortez reportedly ignored Greene’s questions but later told reporters that Greene was the kind of person “I threw out of bars all the time.”

“For me, this isn’t even about how I feel. It’s that I refuse to allow young women, people of color, people who are standing up for what they believe, to see this kind of intimidation attempts by a person who supports white supremacists in our nation’s Capitol,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed.

Since then, top Democrats have ramped up the pressure on House Republicans to oust Greene.

They are also reportedly asking the House Ethics Committee to investigate her, and Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill., is drafting a resolution to censure her.

In January, Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., another member of the progressive “Squad,” announced she was moving her congressional office away from Greene’s out of fear for her personal safety because Greene was not wearing a mask.
