Laramie County State Senator Anthony Bouchard, running in the Republican Primary against incumbent House member Liz Cheney, called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to remove Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from all House Committees for her hoax concerning an attack in her office on January 6th.

Newsweek reported that Ocasio-Cortez said rioters actually entered her office, forcing her to take refuge inside her bathroom after her legislative director Geraldo Bonilla-Chavez told her to “hide, hide, run and hide.”

“And so I run back into my office,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I slam my door. There’s another kind of like back area to my office, and I open it, and there’s a closet and a bathroom. And I jump into my bathroom.”

“As members of the mob banged against the door, Ocasio-Cortez believed ‘this was the moment where I thought everything was over’,” Newsweek reported.

But as it turns out, it was just another leftist Jussie Smollett hoax.

South Carolina Representative Nancy Mace, who has an office two doors down from AOC, said on Twitter that no one was threatened and that the rioters were nowhere near the Cannon House Office Building where Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s office was located.

Bouchard said “if anything demands a member be removed from House Committees, it’s perpetuating a demagogic hoax that inspires hate and division – just like Jussie Smollett, Bubba Wallace and so many other race-hustling hoaxsters whom no one believes anymore.”

“Speaker Pelosi has a lot of nerve attacking Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene over old Facebook posts while allowing AOC to perpetuate her own Jussie Smollett hoax,” Bouchard said. “Before she lashes out against Congresswoman Greene, she needs first to remove Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez from the Oversight and Reform and the Financial Services Committee.”
