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."
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.
