Did AOC Admit the Capitol Police Let Protestors Inside the Building on J6? (WATCH)


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) bashed U.S. Capitol Police after a man (comedian Alex Stein) heckled her on the Capitol steps on Wednesday, and police did not attempt to stop him.

After the exchange with Stein, AOC railed against police in comments made to a reporter, suggesting officers who worked on January 6th, 2021, sympathized with protestors and accused cops of letting them inside the Capitol building.

AOC initially accused Stein of swearing at her and then deleted the tweet.

She later posted about the incident, stating, “I posted about a deeply disgusting incident that happened today on the Capitol steps, but took it down bc it’s clearly someone seeking extremist fame. It’s just a bummer to work in an institution that openly allowed this, but talking about it only invites more. Just really sad…Here is a video he posted of the incident. I was actually walking over to deck him because if no one will protect us then I’ll do it myself but I needed to catch a vote more than a case today.”

AOC continued to criticize police in a stream-of-conscious video later Wednesday evening, The Gateway Pundit noted.

She later spoke to Latino Rebels reporter Pablo Manríquez, “.@aoc tells me she’s never felt safe in the Capitol, citing reports of police and members of Congress working with insurrectionists on January 6th. Here’s the video:”

“Remember how there was tons of footage and evidence of officers & others inside on 1/6 supporting insurrectionists, but then everyone decided it was too politically risky to investigate thoroughly so they brushed under the rug and now we still have no idea who or what is safe?” AOC tweeted.

Later Wednesday evening, AOC streamed herself again talking about the heckling incident and Capitol Police.

Former NYPD detective Rob O’Donnell noted, “In tonights @AOC instagram rant she labeled this “Sexually threatening aggressive behavior”, mind you if he was such a threat why did you approach him? Also wanted the Capitol Officer to intervene when no law was violated. Laws are for the surfs I guess.”

“Did @AOC just give credible evidence for the defense of every defendant charged with trespassing on January 6th that they were in fact let in?” O’Donnell added.
