AOC tells Cruz “Both you and Senator Hawley must resign,” Cruz fires back

Thursday morning, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted to Texas Senator Ted Cruz:

Sen. Cruz, you must accept responsibility for how your craven, self-serving actions contributed to the deaths of four people yesterday. And how you fundraised off this riot.

Both you and Senator Hawley must resign. If you do not, the Senate should move for your expulsion.

Cruz replied:

1/2 @AOC You are a liar.

Leading a debate in the Senate on ensuring election integrity is doing our jobs, and it’s in no way responsible for the despicable terrorists who attacked the Capitol yesterday.

And sorry, I ain’t going anywhere. When you and your socialist buddies…

2/2 …try to massively raise taxes, when you try to pass the green new deal & destroy millions of jobs, when you push for amnesty, when you try to pack the Supreme Court w/ activists to undermine our Constitutional rights…

I will fight that every step & stand with the People.
