Mace claims it was not true that rioters were shouting in the hallway where she and Ocasio-Cortez share an office.
“We have to separate fact from fiction,” Mace said, claiming that they were being protected by the Capitol police.
“This was a traumatic experience and I’m not gonna discount that for anyone that lived through that day,” she added.
But Mace made clear that there was “no violent mob in the hallways” after AOC described hearing loud noises outside her office.
“When you exaggerate it, or are dishonest about how you represent what happened, it waters down everyone else’s trauma,” Mace added.
