AOC Says Capitol Officers Were “Opening the Doors” for Jan. 6 Rioters

2013: Detroit, Michigan, files for bankruptcy, becoming the largest US municipal bankruptcy ever at $18.5 billion.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) railed against the U.S. Capitol Police for failing to impede the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, alleging that some officers were “sympathetic” to the participants.

Ocasio-Cortez told a reporter that authorities never “got to the bottom” on officers who were “opening the doors” for the rioters.

“…And that there were actual officers working with this? And we never got to the bottom of that, and we never got any answers about that? And to this day, we’re just supposed to pretend that that never happened?” Ocasio-Cortez is heard saying in the video.

“I have no idea what happened to the people on the inside, who were very clearly sympathetic with what was going on and opening doors wide open for that, and I’m supposed to sit here and pretend like none of that ever happened?”

The congresswoman continued, saying: “And then right afterward, you have a massive, you know, you just have this idea that throwing money at that problem is going to make it go away without any accountability.”

“And so this is, this is where these things are breaking down. We’re not safe. And it’s not just about members of Congress not being safe. The food staff workers aren’t safe. the janitors aren’t safe — like, we need to get to the bottom of this.”

Ocasio-Cortez later reiterated her opinion on Twitter.

“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?” she tweeted.

Steve Cortes, former advisor to the Trump campaign, called for the release of Capitol security footage in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks.

“Wait, so AOC says Capitol Police did, in fact, invite protestors into the building? One way to get to resolve all such issues? Release the tapes. All of them,” he tweeted.

    This is how dumb that woman is. They let people inside on the orders of Pelosi and the FBI, all one big operation to silence republicans where going to bring up the mountains of evidence of a rigged election. It has never been investigate because it was their plan in the first place

    1. ruth mason says:

      While, I don’t feel all officers were a part of Jan.6, I do feel some were. I don’t feel she is dumb, just stating what has been sweeped under the rug. It is always unpopular to state what is to be hidden.

      1. Von Potter says:

        Jan 6 chaos was planned and set forth via NP………That is not a hard thing to understand because President Trump asked for the National Guard to be a part of the parade and NP said no…………Then she waited for the chaos to start and then sent for the National Guard…………She is the evil that keeps on rearing her crude head……….

    2. Patrick says:

      Where is your Proof of a Rigged Election?? Proof Proof none of the Trump Puppets have produced any. Quit drining the cool aid. You sound like you bought too many My Pillows.

      1. Swifty says:

        Lots of proof. You are not looking for it. The media doesn’t want to see or hear it. Dems and RINOs don’t want to see or hear it.

        1. Pat says:

          So true.

      2. Philip Seth Hammersley says:

        Nearly 1000 SWORN affidavits concerning vote fraud. The fact that the corrupt media or scared judges won’t hear and see evidence does not negate said evidence!!

      3. Jon says:

        Very easy troll. Look at PA and the difference in votes in large cities and the out lying counties that switched wildly their century old voting patterns. Toddle on child

      4. John says:

        It appears you yourself has been sucking down plenty of the liberal koolaid. There has been plenty of proof shown in multiple states but of course the main stream media won’t report on it due to the fact it would show them in bed with the democrats, big business and many holding political office in DC, along with their puppet masters, BHO and George Soros. Instead of hiding in your mommas basement watching CNN, try doing a little research before you open your pie hole.

      5. DiYi says:

        When did you watch 2000 Mules?

      6. Bonnie says:

        Quit watching the news on CBS, NBC, and start to look at what is really going on!!!!! If you take the time to look, you will find the truth!

    3. Don says:

      Exactly and we knew it from day one.

  2. Tha Count says:

    A stupid ignorat waitress is elected to be senator.
    Only in America
    I guess the people who voted for her are not better or smarter than she is.
    Voting has its consequences

  3. john says:

    She needs to talk to Laurence Olivier. Aw shucks, she was just a toddler when he died. He would have been able to show her how to find out if it was safe.

  4. Edouard d'Orange says:

    Do as Steve Cortes implore, release all of the tapes. But nasty Nancy Piglousy will never do this. What you will find is that protestors were killed by Capitol police who should be held accountable, not just Ashli Babbitt, but Rosanne Boyland, Kevin Greeson & Benjamin Phillips. No police died; Brian Sicknick was not killed by protestors- that is a damn lie.

  5. Gary says:

    AOC needs to go back under the rock she came from
