Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made an outrageous claim on Twitter this week that Senator Ted Cruz tried to have her “murdered.”
Cruz sent a tweet to Ocasio-Cortez, saying he agrees with her that the popular investing app Robinhood needs to explain its decision to block retail investors from purchasing certain stock. The New York Democrat responded by telling Ted Cruz that if he wants to help he should resign from the Senate and that he almost had her “murdered.”
“I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter. “Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.”
“In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign,” she added.
