Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on Instagram live and talked about her experience during the rough incident at the Capitol on January 6th. She discussed people banging on doors and her hiding in a bathroom in her office.

Ocasio-Cortez claims people were shouting "where is she, where is she" and she had fears that "everything was over." However, those people turned out to be police and not the Trump supporters, as stated in an article posted on Slate:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez opened up Monday night about her harrowing experience running and hiding from rioters inside the Capitol on Jan. 6. In an Instagram Live chat watched live by roughly 150,000 viewers, the New York Democrat described hiding in the bathroom in her congressional office, fearing for her life as she heard people systematically working their way down the hall banging on doors and shouting: “Where is she? Where is she?” “This was the moment where I thought everything was over,” Ocasio-Cortez said in the emotional 90-minute video. “I thought I was going to die.” The people searching for the second term congresswoman turned out to be the Capitol police, not the pro-Trump mob that has targeted her online and in real life, but AOC’s ordeal was just beginning, as the police aggressively urged her to evacuate to a different building as the siege played out.

But still, the Democratic Congresswoman had a story to tell and she wanted her listeners to hear it from her. She told her story to her viewers, of which 150,000 people tuned in live and many more watched later.

Here's a video clip from that:



But it wasn't just her trauma that came up in her live video on Instagram. AOC revealed something else from her past. She admitted to being a victim of sexual assault.

Slate's article continued, stating the following:
Recounting the events and feelings of that day was emotional for AOC, who also revealed in the video she had been the victim of sexual assault in the past. “I really just felt like, if this is the plan for me, then people will be able to take it from here,” she said, occasionally wiping away tears. “I had fulfilled my purpose.” AOC, who has been derided by Republicans for opening up about the fear and trauma of the riot, accused other members, like Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri, of adopting the language of abusers in their responses. “These folks who tell us to move on, that it’s not a big deal, that we should forget what’s happened, or even telling us to apologize. These are the same tactics of abusers. And I’m a survivor of sexual assault..."

So here we are with Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealing personal information about a traumatic incident and linking the trauma together.
