WATCH: “January 6th Was A Trial Run” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Explains Why Midterms Are So Important This Year

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cussed by GOP

On January 6th, Donald Trump’s fans led an attack on the United States Capitol Building, and on democracy. However, that wasn’t all that happened. At the same time, a group of legislators were trying to overturn the election from within. While fences and security can address the external risks, the internal ones aren’t always mentioned.

Midterm elections are coming up, and there’s a longstanding pattern by which the party that holds the White House tends to lose Congressional seats in midterms. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explains in the clip below why that’s a particularly significant risk this time, since holding Congress would give the GOP more power to reject an electoral vote — as the former President’s allies tried to do in 2020.

“If we lose the House — this is no joke. January 6th was a trial run, and a lot of people don’t seem to understand that. It was a trial run. And they’re going to come back. If they win the House — Here’s the thing. The technicality of what happened on January 6th. The only reason it wasn’t worse was because Democrats had the House, and they didn’t have the votes in the House. If they take the House, then they have the votes to not authorize and legitimize the Presidential election, whatever the results are. So this is very serious.”

Republicans have already declared their intentions to use their power, if they’re granted it in midterm elections, to attack President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris with vengeful impeachments, try to return Donald Trump to the White House through the convoluted route of naming him as Speaker of the House, and to destroy the work of the January 6th Committee by turning it to faux investigations to blame Nancy Pelosi and the FBI for the attack.
