During a Congressional hearing in February, AOC slammed Libs of TikTok for sharing videos about Boston Children’s Hospital’s gender transition procedures for minors. The radical leftist alleged that Raichik posted a “lie” that was “circulated by other prominent far-right influencers” and that the information led to “real life harassment and ultimately a bomb threat” to Boston Children’s Hospital.
On Friday, Raichik filmed herself inside Congressional offices approaching AOC’s office. She knocked on the door and a staffer said Cortez was not in, and to “give me one second.”
After a few moments, Raichik said to the camera “I don’t think we’re going to get to talk to her…I don’t know if she’s in or not, but I think that that door slams where it’s really telling. So I don’t think they want to talk to us.”
Raichik left a message on a sticky note posted outside the office, asking AOC not to “lie about American citizens.”
On “Tucker Carlson Tonight”, Raichik discussed the attempted encounter, saying she was not surprised.
“I absolutely had no expectations for her to own up to it. I went to her office, and I was ready to sit down with her and get to the bottom of this and explain it. And I don’t know if she was in the office or not, but I know she cowered away,” she said.
“I don’t think she would ever face me or ever have a discussion about it. But I as an American citizen — I don’t appreciate being defamed in front of millions of people. So I wanted to confront her, and she cowered.”
Following the broadcast, Raichik tweeted: “Btw this isn’t over. I’m not gonna stand for a member of Congress using her position of power to defame and lie about me. Stay tuned! 👀”
