Recently sworn in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is reportedly compiling “a list” of moderate Democrats that break party lines and vote with their Republican colleagues; lashing out at centrist legislators during a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reportedly sounded the alarm in a closed-door meeting Thursday and said those Democrats were ‘putting themselves on a list,’” writes Fox News.
