Alexandria ‘Sandy’ Cortez just came out as a sex abuse survivor in a tearful Instagram video on Monday night. Then she accused Republicans of using ‘abusers tactics’ after sharing her horrific experience in the US Capitol as a mob of Trump supporters stormed her hall and threatened her. She was forced to hide in the bathroom in that “near-death experience” and those awful terrorists were screaming, “Where is she!?”
“Or my favorite this past week, Ted Cruz and now Representatives Chip Roy, and oh, by the way, some of the other representatives who actually encourage people to threaten members of Congress or tweeted out the location of the Speaker, are now telling me to apologize for saying and speaking truth to what happened,” she claimed. “These are the tactics of abusers. Or rather, these are the tactics that abusers use. And so when I see this happen, how I feel and how I felt was not again, I’m not going to let this happen again, I’m not going to let it happen to me again, I’m not going to let it happen to the other people who’ve been victimized by this situation again, and I’m not letting gonna let this happen to our country, ever. I’m not going to let it happen.”
It appears though that AOC was not actually in the Capitol at the time but rather hiding in her office in the Cannon Building, which is connected to the Capitol by a tunnel but was not breached.
People have been posting maps showing the distance between the Cannon Building and the Capitol to show that Ocasio-Cortez was not in danger, but she’s pushing back:

This isn’t a fact check at all. Your arrows aren’t accurate. They lie about where the mob stormed & place them further away than it was.
You also fail to the convey *multiple* areas people were trying to storm. It wasn’t 1. You also failed to show tunnels. Poor job all around.

The ratio here.
How embarrassing for #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett

.@AOC made clear she didn’t know who was at her door. Breathless attempts by media to fan fictitious news flames are dangerous.
My office is 2 doors down. Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway. Egregious doesn’t even begin to cover it. Is there nothing MSM won’t politicize? pic.twitter.com/Tl1GiPSOft

That hashtag, #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett, assumes that actor Jussie Smollett wasn’t attacked and nearly lynched outside a Chicago Subway at 2 a.m. by two Trump supporters shouting, “This is MAGA country.”

Oh man #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett is trending right now, after everyone is finding out that AOC was not inside the capitol on 1/6!

AOC tried to make the Capitol Riots about herself and the heifer wasn’t even in the building.
That’s why we call her #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett.

Someone at Twitter is about to receive an angry phone call from Sandy Ocasio’s congressional office in the Cannon House Office Building—which, by the way, is not in the Capitol.#AlexandriaOcasioSmollett pic.twitter.com/BCpRoDLWX2

Yup.. the feigned fear for her life was going to eventually catch up with her. #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett is starting to look very appropriate.

Sara Carter also discussed the latest from AOC:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was not in the U.S. Capitol Building when a mob violently stormed it on January 6 but rather in her Cannon Office Building office. The second-term congresswoman has since recanted her experience during the deadly siege, which she has described as “near-death.” However, no rioters broke into Cannon, a Wednesday report from the conservative publication RedState claims.
If you are in the mainstream media and you fail to honestly fact check a politicians story, guaranteed someone else will & make you look biased, incompetent, foolish or all 3. @JackPosobiec https://t.co/IYbuR5Kfyx
