>Marjorie Taylor Greene(R-GA) verbally attack her after a video from 2019 showed Greene attempting to get into her office and taunting her staff. If it were her harassing a Republican colleague, Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter, then she would have been expelled from Congress immediately.
The fact that Kevin McCarthy, the House @GOPLeader, stripped Justin Amash of all committee seats for criticizing Trump, but has worked to protect this person from consequences (including pretending he doesn’t see it) tells you this is happening with the support of GOP leadership. https://t.co/10OnclroLV

The incident occurred in February 2019, one year before Greene was elected to represent Georgia. Then a conservative activist, Greene is seen in the video with a group of people harassing AOC’s staff through a closed door. The video comes from a since-deleted Facebook Live of Greene’s that was saved by CNN’s
Andrew Kaczynski. In the clip, Greene tells AOC through a mail slot to “stop being a baby and stop locking your door… if you want to be a big girl, get rid of your diaper.”
“We’re going to go see, we’re going to visit, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Crazy eyes. Crazy eyes. Nutty. Cortez,” Greene says to the camera while walking to AOC’s office. She tells her through the mail slot that she does not support her “socialist and murderous abortion policies.” Among Greene’s associates, all wearing red MAGA caps, was
Anthony Aguero, one of the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol during the January 6 siege.
