Radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said during a Friday interview with Latino USA that a ’60-second difference’ during the Capitol riot on January 6th may have resulted in what she called a ‘martial state.’

As The Hill reports:

During an interview with Latino USA published Friday, the progressive firebrand described the ways in which former Vice President Mike Pence‘s safety was jeopardized and the implications the attack could have had on the election certification process.

“Pence was taken out of the Senate chamber something like 60 seconds before these terrorists, insurrectionists got into the Senate chamber,” Ocasio-Cortez told the outlet’s reporter, Maria Hinojosa.

“Mike Pence was the one person, arguably, that had one of the most important roles in making sure that procedurally the Electoral College counts went on as proceeded. Sixty seconds could have meant potentially the difference between what we have right now and a martial state,” she added.

In his role as vice president at the time, Pence presided over the Electoral College certification process as president of the Senate. His role in the process was largely ceremonial. However, his position presiding over the Senate garnered significant attention at the time after former President Trump falsely claimed on Twitter that Pence had the ability to “reject fraudulently chosen electors.”

AOC’s unhinged and bizarre remarks underscore the psychological toll the events of January 6th seem to have taken on Democrats.

Pence had the opportunity to fix the stolen election or at least buy some time for investigation but he pussed out and ran. SHAME ON YOU PENCE. I hope his political career is over.

Pence could have dont nothing as Dems played but the election rules they have in place and was not enough time to get it done. Proof is still being uncovered. That is why Dems wanted mail-in voting was easier to cheat and then we are seeing the voting machines are also cheating
