Pelosi Accuses MTG of Launching a ‘Verbal Assault’ Against AOC, Suggests Ethics Committee Look Into the Situation

The Washington Post reported today that two of its reporters witnessed U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA) “aggressively confront” U.S. House Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as she was exiting the House chamber.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused Greene of a “verbal assault” upon the sophomore Congresswoman and suggested that the Ethics Committee look into the situation.

During her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill, Pelosi said, “It’s so beyond the pale of anything that is in keeping with bringing honor to the House.”

In a two-part tweet this morning, Greene said, “@AOC “Ms. Defund The Police” wants to call the police for security bc she’s afraid of debating with me about her socialist GND. AOC is a fraud & a hypocrite. That’s fine Sandy. Since you lack the courage & intelligence to debate me, I’ll debate the person who really wrote it.”

“And any US Member of Congress supporting terrorists Hamas should be expelled. Any member supporting and fundraising for criminals in Antifa/BLM riots in American cities should be expelled. That’s the #JihadSquad and the VP,” Greene added.

In response to Pelosi’s comments, Greene disputed her characterization of the situation and said that the Committee should instead investigate Ocasio-Cortez.

“Actually, @SpeakerPelosi the Ethics Commitee should look into @AOC for putting Trump admin staff and supporters on lists to destroy their lives and prevent future employment, She threatened the livelihoods of Americans for simply being Republicans. BTW, there was no screaming,” Greene explained.

We reported yesterday on a tweet that Greene made in regards to the debate that she believed would take place between her and Ocasio-Cortez where Greene said Ocasio-Cortez “chickened out” and that the two had “talked.”
