AOC Blasts Ted Cruz Over Rebellion and Tells Him to Resign – ‘We Want Accountability’

US Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) beat Senator Ted Cruz on Thursday and accused the Texas Republican of being one of the leaders of the deadly January 6th uprising, of “almost” “murdering” her. She called for accountability and for him to resign.

It started with a tweet the New York Congresswoman asked for Thursday’s decision to block trading in GameStop and other stocks from investment platform RobinHood after a group of grassroots investment activists posted on the social media platform Reddit were organized that had upset the stock.

This is unacceptable.

We need to know more now about @ RobinhoodApp’s decision to prevent retail investors from buying stocks while hedge funds are free to trade the stocks at their own discretion.

As a member of the Financial Services Cmte, I would support a hearing if necessary.

In an unexpected move, Cruz tweeted: “I totally agree.”

AOC did not accept his reach and instead accused him of attempted murder and said to resign.

“I am happy to be working with Republicans on this issue that has common ground, but you almost murdered me three weeks ago so you could expose this problem,” she wrote. “I’m happy to work with almost every other GOP that isn’t trying to kill me. In the meantime, if you’d like to help, you can step back. “

She wasn’t finished yet.

“That’s no joke. We need accountability, and that includes a new senator from Texas, ”she added, following on from a report by Politico on a second Capitol cop who died of suicide after the Capitol coup.

While you conveniently speak of “moving on,” a second Capitol police officer lost his life yesterday after the attacks you were involved in continued to rage.

That’s no joke. We need accountability, and that includes a new Senator from Texas.https: //
