Lauren Boebert Changes The Subject After AOC Asks If She Requested a Pardon Over Her Actions On Jan 6

Lauren Boebert and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) on Friday got into a war of words with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez after the New York Democrat asked Boebert if she sought a presidential pardon from Donald Trump for tweeting out logistic information in real-time as Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol on Jan 6.

AOC’s question came a day after Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said during Thursday’s prime-time hearing of the House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 insurrection that “Representative Perry contacted the White House in the weeks after January 6th to seek a presidential pardon,” and that “Multiple other Republican congressmen also sought presidential pardons for their roles in attempting to overturn the 2020 election.”

“Hey quick question Boebert, did you ask for a pardon after tweeting the Speaker’s location on Jan 6th?” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) asked her colleague on Twitter. “You and the KKK Caucus have been really quiet about it today and given how much y’all have to say I’m not sure why no one’s responding to this simple question,” she added.

Biebert fired back, avoiding answering the question directly and instead deflecting to attack president Joe Biden.

“Ok Sandy, $5 a gallon gas, 3+ million illegals crossing our southern border, no baby formula, inflation higher than it’s been in both of our lifetimes, and this is what you want to talk about?” Boebert asked in response to a question about whether she sought a pardon for insurrection.

“Your policies are failing America, and you’re going to lose the House come November,” she said.
