Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) told CNN’s Dana Bash that she feared being raped during the January 6th Capitol riot because “white supremacy and patriarchy are very linked” and that “deeply rooted” misogyny and racism motivated the Capitol attackers.

Ocasio-Cortez has claimed, in the past, that she feared for her life during the January 6th riot at the United States Capitol, which closely followed a rally in support of President Donald Trump.

Ocasio-Cortez was not in the U.S. Capitol building proper during the riot, though she was in the Rayburn House Office Building on the Capitol campus, separated from the Capitol building by a road on the surface and a subway underground.

Capitol Police told Ocasio-Cortez and her staff to remain in their offices during the incident. A Republican colleague, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) later said that she was “two doors down” from Ocasio-Cortez and that “insurrectionists never stormed our hallway.”
