Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) defended his decision to object to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden‘s Electoral College victory during a joint session of Congress after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called on him to resign after a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol.
“Sen. Cruz, you must accept responsibility for how your craven, self-serving actions contributed to the deaths of four people yesterday. And how you fundraised off this riot,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted at the lawmaker on Thursday.
“Both you and Senator Hawley must resign. If you do not, the Senate should move for your expulsion,” she added, referring to Sen. Josh Hawley
