Ocasio-Cortez Raises Security Concerns After Confrontation With Controversial Congresswoman

When asked if she felt that she was bing bullied by Ms Greene when she approached her, Ms Ocasio-Cortez said, "I mean she was certainly chasing".

Greene tried to catch up to the NY representative, asking why she supports antifa and Black Lives Matter, describing them as "terrorist" groups.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene should be investigated by the House Ethics Committee for aggressively questioning and pursuing Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Capitol on Wednesday.

Greene, age 46, also reportedly shouted that Ocasio-Cortez was failing to defend her "radical socialist" beliefs by declining to publicly debate the freshman from Georgia.

"I used to work as a bartender", Ms Ocasio-Cortez later told reporters.

Ocasio-Cortez ignored Greene other than to throw up her hands, The Post reported.

Reporters outside the chamber witnessed Ms Greene call Ms Ocasio-Cortez a "terror sympathiser".

The footage and the board found damage to the pipeline's protective coating and anchor damage from passing commercial vessels. There's still a battle over whether this case belongs in federal or state court, that likely won't be resolved this week.

'It is so beyond the pale of anything that is in keeping with bringing honor to the House or not bringing dishonor to the house, ' she said at her weekly news conference, adding that it should go to the ethics committee.

"This is beneath the dignity of person serving in Congress", Mrs Pelosi continued, calling it "a cause for trauma and fear among members".

Greene has had a swift rise off the back of her Trumpian positions, as Insider's Dave Levinthal reported.

(R) speak during a press conference to announce Green New Deal legislation to promote clean energy programs outside the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on February 7, 2019. "One Member has already been forced to relocate her office due to Congresswoman Greene's attacks", the statement reads.

A prominent USA congresswoman has called for better security after she was accosted and verbally abused in a hallway by another member of the House of Representatives.

"See, that's bipartisanship, talking to one another, debating policy for the American people".

"We hope leadership and the Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff - especially as many offices are discussing reopening", AOC spokesperson Lauren Hitt told the Post.

That member who moved offices is Missouri's Cori Bush, who said earlier this year that a maskless Greene stopped her in a hallway and "berated" her.
