Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called on Sens. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley to resign or face expulsion from Congress, accusing the Republican lawmakers of fomenting Wednesday’s violent riots at the U.S. Capitol.
“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,” Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted on Thursday. “Both you and Senator Hawley must resign. If you do not, the Senate should move for your expulsion.”
