Far-left Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed without evidence that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) “almost had her murdered,” after merely agreeing on her Tweet about the ongoing issue in the stock market.

On Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez accused Ted Cruz of trying to get her killed during the U.S. Capitol riot a few weeks ago. This allegation was arrived at by Ocasio-Cortez after the Senator responded with “fully agree” on her post about the stock market.

In her Twitter account, Ocasio-Cortez posted a tweet where she called out the financial company that prevented retail investors from buying stocks while hedge funds can freely trade the stocks as they see fit.

After posting her Tweet, Sen. Ted Cruz who agreed with her sentiments responded and retweeted her post with a caption”fully agree.”

However, after his reponse Ocasio-Cortez starting throwing accusations at the Republican Senator saying that, Cruz had her “almost murdered” 3 weeks ago.

The far-left representative continued and wrote on Twitter, “Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that isn’t trying to get me killed. In the meantime, if you want to help, you can resign.”

However, said allegations of Ocasio-Cortez was found baseless as there is no evidence to support her claim that Cruz had her almost murdered during the U.S. Capitol riot.

In addition to that, the AOC also claimed, “while you conveniently talk about ‘moving on,’ a second Capitol police officer lost their life yesterday in the still-raging aftermath of the attacks you had a role in.”

Ocasio-Cortez added more into her allegations and noted that the Senator hasn’t apologized yet for the “serious physical and mental harm” that he caused in relation to the riot. She then slammed the Senator in a tweet saying, “In the meantime, you can get off my timeline & stop clout-chasing. Thanks. Happy to work with other GOP on this.”

Again, the far-left representative have no evidence to support that Cruz had a role in the riot that breached the U.S. Capitol. In fact, the senator also condemned the violence that erupted on that day.

In a statement, the Senator said, “We saw a terrorist attack on the United States Capitol, it was despicable, it was an assault. And every one of those violent criminals who attacked the Capitol, should be fully prosecuted. And they should spend a long, long time in jail. It was a sad day for the country to see violence overwhelming the grounds of the Capitol building.”

On top of alleging that Sen. Ted Cruz “almost had her murdered,” Ocasio-Cortez also accused Cruz of merely “clout-chasing” when he retweeted her post.

This raised eyebrows from the supporters of the Republican lawmaker as Ted Cruz, who is a Senator is relatively in a more prestigious position than Ocasio-Cortez who is a representative.

Meanwhile, according to the report of CNBC before the riot erupted at the Capitol, Cruz reportedly signed a written objection to certify the Arizona’s votes. This move prompted a debate at the joint session. These events happened a few hours before the rioters breached the chambers which prompted the lawmakers to evacuate from the building.

This move by Cruz on that faithful day is what probably prompted Ocasio-Cortez to make such allegations that he almost had here “murdered” three weeks ago.

However, Senator Dianne Feinstein defended the Republican Senator by saying that the dialogue that happened on that day is the “highest-level dialogue” in democracy.

Feinstein also told reporters at the U.S. Capitol that the Senate is a place of freedom and that people come to the Senate ‘to speak their piece, and they do, and they provide a kind of leadership.”

She continued and said, “In some cases, it’s positive, in some cases, maybe not. A lot of that depends on who’s looking and what party they are.”
