After interviewing socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a woman in charge of the account Human Rights Watch Watcher on Twitter was visited by the California Highway Patrol (D-NY).
She tweeted, “I’m very shook up right now.” “I was just visited at my home by two plainclothes officers from the California Highway Patrol. They claimed to be representing the Capitol Police and accused me of bullying @AOC on Twitter the day before. This is demonstrably untrue.”
(1/X) I’m really shaken up right now. I was just visited by two plainclothes police officers from California Highway Patrol at my home. They said they came here on behalf of the Capitol Police and accused me of threatening @AOC on Twitter yesterday. This is provably false. pic.twitter.com/NGR8KViy93

She explained, “They knew my name and where I live.” “It was done on behalf of a member of Congress who opposes police state tactics.”
She went on to say, “I’d really appreciate it if AOC could look into this.” “I understand she probably gets a lot of threats, but I shouldn’t be targeted by cops because I disagree with her politics. “Right now, I feel very insecure in my own home.”
Rep. Ocasio-spokeswoman Cortez’s said that she denies any involvement in the shocking incident.
The Intercept’s Ryan Grim wrote, “A spokesperson for AOC says they did not report this post to police and have asked Capitol Police for answers: “No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, But, after seeing his tweets about being visited last night, we asked Capitol Police to investigate.”

Grim added, “The police did show up at this person’s door over a post about AOC is confirmed.” “The question remains as to who sent them and why. Capitol Police would eagerly out AOC if she was actually responsible for it and denied it, but her denial has serious credibility.”
In a statement to Grim, the Capitol Police denied that it was because of a lawsuit from Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
“Without facts, there is no reason to believe AOC is responsible, but regardless, this is a rather serious incident if the Capitol Police are dispatching armed police officers to citizens’ homes in response to nonviolent critiques of a politician’s statements,” former Intercept journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted.
