According to Ayanna Pressley’s chief of staff Sarah Groh, the panic buttons in the Congresswoman’s office were all “torn out—the whole unit.”
They don’t know why or who did it.
Sarah Groh, chief of staff to "Squad" member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, tells the Boston Globe that when she hid from the howling mob, she discovered that “every panic button in my office had been torn out.”
Sure hoping for an innocent explanation for this.
AOC telling Instagram viewers tonight that she had “a close encounter” during the Capitol insurrection in which she thought she might die makes this detail from Ayanna Pressley’s chief of staff in our rebuilding of events all the more chilling. https://t.co/GwnZFAbXQy
“Every panic button in my office had been torn out — the whole unit,” Sarah Groh, a staffer for Rep. Ayanna Pressley said. “...they could come up with no rationale as to why. She had used them before and hadn’t switched offices since then.” https://t.co/h2EWzcZabg
House Dem Ayanna Pressley’s chief of staff Sarah Groh now tells the Boston Globe that every panic button in her office — “the whole unit” — had inexplicably been removed ahead of the attack on the Capitol.
Ayanna Pressley's panic button removed the day before.
Insurrectionists given tours of the building.
Knowledge of the Capitol floor plan.
This was not a spontaneous attack. https://t.co/GpQLdOyZQh
The panic buttons in Ayanna Pressley's office were ripped out (according to her chief of staff) & AOC said on InstaLive that she had a close call and thought she might die.
Pretty at a loss with those details, to be honest.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s staffers barricaded themselves in their office, pulled out gas masks and looked for the special panic buttons in the office.

In the past hours we found out panic buttons were removed from Ayanna Pressley's office, GOP MoC's gave guided tours to terrorists, and key witnesses are killing themselves rather than testify, but it's FEAR THAT EVERYONE MIGHT GET HEALTH INSURANCE that has the market scared https://t.co/taSWWjetw0
y'all. this is a tiny but CHILLING detail about the Capitol attack: THE PANIC BUTTONS WERE TORN OUT IN AYANNA PRESSLEY'S OFFICE BEFORE THE ATTACK 😳 https://t.co/3Tbsk6fzuk
I cannot stop thinking about the “torn out” panic button in Ayanna Pressley’s office. There is so much still to learn about what happened and is happening - but it’s very bad. The Democratic women, especially women of color, are in my head and heart today.
Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley’s Chief of Staff says that when they hid from the MAGA terrorists, they saw that every panic button in their office had been torn out, the entire units.
And they never once used them. At all.
Sounds premeditated to me.
Republican Congress members were giving reconnaissance tours, Ayanna Pressley’s panic buttons were ripped out of her office beforehand. Are we still gonna pretend this was a spontaneous working class revolt
Ted Cruz incited violent insurrection.
Expel that traitor from the Senate.
Send him to prison.

Updates on the white supremacist coup:
- Every panic button in Ayanna Pressley’s office was destroyed
- The rioters knew where Jim Clyburn’s unofficial office was, and showed up there
- Congress reps gave reconnaissance tours a day prior.
This increasingly looks coordinated. https://t.co/oYOEVwD5WN
Lindsey Graham demanded the Impeachment of Clinton for a BJ.
But says Trump shouldn't be Impeached for inciting violent insurrection.

The zip ties and the removal of panic buttons in Ayanna Pressley's office suggest that this could have easily ended in a massacre. Every single insurrectionist MUST face justice. https://t.co/ftTEKpTRHd
I don't doubt they're afraid. So are AOC, Cori Bush, Ayanna Pressley, Eric Swalwell, and all the other Dems moving on impeachment—but they're still doing the job. They're still doing what's right and what's necessary. If you can't or won't do that, resign so someone else can. https://t.co/7csagaiNn9
Sarah Groh, Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s (D-MA) chief of staff, said when she went for the panic buttons in the congresswoman’s office, which she had used before, every single one “had been torn out — the whole unit.”
This is terrifying. The panic buttons in Rep. Ayanna Pressley's office were torn out — BEFORE the riot began.
This was a premeditated attack supported by members of Congress & the police.
Impeach. Investigate. Expel.
So much love to @AyannaPressley
and her staff. https://t.co/r9c3LgmVsw
Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s office panic buttons were inexplicably removed before the Capitol riot. https://t.co/c2zZl6qG2c
what about the number of times that the President named names at his rally speeches, inciting violence against AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, not to mention his public endorsement of violence against Ali Velshi. We are all already under threat
People inside knew this was coming.
I want to know who did this.
