Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused conservative activists and a newspaper of inciting violence against a fellow progressive House member, Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar.

Ocasio-Cortez said at a House Democratic retreat in Leesburg, Virginia, that the New York Post endangered Omar with a front page Thursday that criticized her comments about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
