Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortex joined ABC's This Week to discuss the violent insurrection on the Capitol, and she pretty much nailed it. She was asked about a letter that was sent from Republicans in Congress to Joe Biden asking him to intervene in a second impeachment trial, even though their lives were at risk during the riot.
Here is what she had to say to that request:
Perhaps my colleagues were not in the room. Perhaps my colleagues were not fully present for the events on Wednesday. We came close to nearly half of the House dying on Wednesday.
If a foreign head of state, if another head of state came in and ordered an attack on the United States Congress, would we say that should not be prosecuted? Would we say there should be absolutely no response to that?
No. It is an act of insurrection. It's an act of hostility. And we must have accountability, because without accountability, it will happen again."
