Ocasio-Cortez was responding to Michael Moates, who quote-tweeted Ocasio-Cortez earlier Friday, saying that “there is a new standard in Congress. Bitches will subpoena you if you troll them.”

The 29-year-old Democrat fired back at Moates on Twitter.

The back-and-forth between Ocasio-Cortez and Moates stems from Ocasio-Cortez hitting back at Donald Trump Jr.Donald (Don) John TrumpTrump charity agrees to dissolve amid allegations of a 'shocking pattern of illegality' Chris Matthews: Trump Jr., Ivanka ‘stand as the next dominoes to fall’ Report accuses US tech giants of impeding Senate's Russia probe MORE for making fun of her.

Moates followed up with more tweets, saying the "house should consider expelling her" for "an abuse of power." 

Ocasio-Cortez has not shied away from Twitter battles, frequently getting into it with Fox News over its coverage of her, as well as prominent Republicans, such as former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who critique her and her progressive policies.

According to Moates's Twitter bio, he is chairman of conservative news outlet The DC Chronicle and a doctoral student at Fielding University.
