Does this video show Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez getting "thrown out" of Congress during a congressional hearing? No, that's not true: The footage is from a 2019 hearing and does not show her being ejected. The transcript from this hearing also does not show anyone asking Ocasio-Cortez to leave or be escorted out of the room. The headline is clickbait.
The claim appeared in a Facebook post on October 10, 2022, with the caption, "AOC 𝐏𝐔𝐋𝐋𝐒 𝐇𝐔𝐌𝐈𝐋𝐈𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐒𝐭𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐬 in 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬, Gets 𝐓𝐇𝐑𝐎𝐖𝐍 Out. The video opened with Ocasio-Cortez saying:
Mr. Chairman, may I make a comment? I would like to do my job, and I try not to get out of my job at every opportunity.
This is what the post looked like on Facebook at the time of writing:
The post does not specify dates for the scenes in the video, and with present-tense verbs in the caption, it implies that the scenes are recent.
The 12:08 clip is from a October 29, 2019, congressional hearing about climate, car companies and California, according to the transcript from GovInfo.gov. Ocasio-Cortez speaks about how "an entire political party" is trying to get out of discussing cutting carbon emissions.
Ocasio-Cortez is in only the first two minutes of the video, the first of three different clips. The remainder is Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Sen. Ted Cruz speaking.
