Ocasio-Cortez said his case was one of many, but he felt compelled to discuss it as some Republicans repeatedly lied that the election had been stolen from Donald Trump and urged Democrats to continue. Basically, he called for Sen.Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to step down.
They tried to tell us it wasn’t a big deal. They are trying to tell us to move on without answering, without telling the truth, to move on. That tells me that if they are given another political window their chance, even if they know what it means, that it will endanger their colleagues, they will do it again.
More than an hour later, a New York Democrat discussed warnings he and other members of Congress had in the days leading up to the violent uprising at the Capitol and provided new details about the closest meeting where he thought he was going to die, as he revealed on Instagram Live weeks ago.
