Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) detailed her experience of the encounter during an Instagram Live stream this week.
The GOP Congresswoman, Nancy Mace, who claimed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez exaggerated her claims about the Capitol Hill riot said that the Bronx representative “watered down everyone’s trauma” by telling her version of the events.
After the video aired, Mace (R-SC) tweeted, “My office is 2 doors down. Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway.”
*FACT CHECK*— Nancy Mace (@NancyMace) February 4, 2021

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib dramatically broke down crying on the House floor on Feb 4th, when talking about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, and describing how afraid she had been while saying she is thankful she was not there.
