The move followed Ocasio-Cortez sharing her harrowing experience during the insurrection on Instagram Live, saying she thought she was "going to die."
"29 days ago, on January 6th, insurrectionists attacked our Capitol, seeking to overturn the results of our nation's election," Ocasio-Cortez said. "29 days ago, the glass in and around this very chamber was shattered by gunshots, clubs, by individuals seeking to restrain and murder members of congress duly elected to carry out the duties of their office."
"Sadly, less than 29 days later, with little to no accountability for the bloodshed and trauma of the 6th, some are already demanding that we move on, or worse, attempting to minimize, discredit, or belittle the account of survivors," she added.
