Pelosi suggests Integrity committee Must Explore Marjorie Taylor Greene for"verbal Attack" of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Thursday that the House Ethics Committee must research Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene because of the alleged"verbal attack" of Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Pelosi known as Greene's alleged behaviour"egregious" and"not in keeping with the behaviour of a part of Congress."

"That really is beneath the dignity of a individual working in the Congress of the USA," she explained. "it is a cause for fear and harm amongst members, particularly on the heels of a insurrection where the minority at the committee refused ever occurred."

Greene reacted to Pelosi on Twitter, stating the ethics committee must start looking into Ocasio-Cortez instead.

CBS News reached outside to Ocasio-Cortez to get a statement on Wednesday's event. Ocasio-Cortez's spokesperson Lauren Hitt told the Washington Post which Green attempted to"start an argument" and started"yelling and known as Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a terrorist sympathizer" if Ocasio-Cortez attempted to drift away.

"We expect the Sergeant at Arms will take actual actions to make Congress a secure, civil place for all staff and members -- particularly as most offices are talking reopening. One Member has been made to relocate her office because of Congresswoman Greene's attacks," Hitt said.
