As the media continues to play up the January 6 Capitol protest, one congresswoman is setting the record straight by calling out her colleague pushing dangerous lies about what happened that day.
In a recent tweet, freshman lawmaker Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) said that Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is not being honest with her comments about “fearing for her life” when she got knocks on her office door.
.@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

This was before she discovered the person knocking was a police officer.
AOC told this story on an Instagram live video and said the mob banged on her door as her aides said she should hide. This was the moment, she claimed, that she thought “it was all over.”
“The bathroom door is right behind me — rather in front of me,” AOC claimed. “And I just overhear one of my aides repeating, ‘where is she?’”
Watch AOC’s story change.
First – She didn’t go to the extraction point because she feared other Congressmen.
That was too ridiculous. She changed it to – “a police officer purposely withheld the extraction information.” pic.twitter.com/U4VF3GOZhB

But Rep. Nancy Mace said her office is only two doors away from AOC’s office and not one protester even made it to their hallway. To make things worse, a new release confirms that protesters only went into the main Capitol Building, and not the Cannon House Building. Which is where AOC’s office is at.
JUST IN: AOC was not in the U.S. Capitol building during her “near death” experience. She claims to have been in her office, which is located in the Cannon Building.
Rioters did not breach the Cannon Building.

Mace said her story is “egregious” and wondered if there is anything the media won’t lie about. She went further and condemned what she called the “violent acts that were committed in our nation’s Capitol.” She then stressed those who took part in the incident should be held accountable.
