Democratic Rep. Cori Bush said Friday she is moving her congressional office further away from Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after she claims Ms. Greene “berated” her in a hallway.

“A maskless Marjorie Taylor Greene & her staff berated me in a hallway. She targeted me & others on social media,” Ms. Bush, of Missouri, tweeted to her 704,000 followers.

“I’m moving my office away from hers for my team’s safety,” she wrote. “I’ve called for the expulsion of members who incited the insurrection from Day 1. Bring H.Res 25 to a vote.

Ms. Bush introduced a resolution on Jan. 11 calling for the possible expulsion of the more than 140 members of Congress who voted against certifying results of the Nov. 3 election.

Her tweet comes amid mounting calls by Democrats for Ms. Greene to resign or be expelled from Congress after it was revealed the Georgia Republican “liked” several social media comments that advocated violence against Democratic lawmakers.



Ms. Greene responded to Ms. Bush‘s claim later Friday, saying it was the Democrat who berated her.

“Rep. @CoriBush is the leader of the St. Louis Black Lives Matter terrorist mob who trespassed into a gated neighborhood to threaten the lives of the McCloskey’s,” the congresswoman tweeted.

“She is lying to you. She berated me,” she added. “Maybe Rep. Bush didn’t realize I was live on video, but I have the receipts.”

In a video accompanying her tweet, Ms. Greene is seen walking with her mask below her chin while filming, talking about how she condemned the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

At one point in the video, someone off-camera yells, “Follow the rules and put on a mask!”

Ms. Greene then pulls up her mask and responds, “You know what? Don’t yell at people!”

“Put on a mask!” a person repeats off-camera.

Ms. Bush is not seen in the video.
