Ocasio-Cortez Reveals Past Sexual Assault, Faults GOP Over Riot

(Bloomberg) — Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez detailed the moment she feared for her life during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, disclosing that she’s the survivor of a past sexual assault to drive home her accusation that some Republicans have been dismissive of her trauma.

The New York Democrat described on Monday her growing fear in the days before the riot as supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in Washington while Congress prepared to certify the results of the Electoral College vote.
