The U.S. Capitols “safe room” where members of Congress sought refuge during last week’s attempted coup has emerged as a potential coronavirus superspreader. But that wasn’t the reason why Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley decided against going there.

The second-term member of The Squad said in a tweet on Tuesday that her decision against hiding in the “safe room” was predicated on her opinion that her Congressional colleagues may be just as dangerous as the riotous mob that illegally and violently broke into the Capitol on Jan. 6.

“The second I realized our ‘safe room’ from the violent white supremacist mob included treasonous, white supremacist, anti masker Members of Congress who incited the mob in the first place, I exited,” Pressley tweeted. “Furious that more of my colleagues by the day are testing positive.”
