I have not ruled out anything. I used the publicly available information. And that publicly available information does not rise to the level of an actionable threat.
As I wrote 10 short minutes ago: Never underestimate the RW's hatred of "commie" minorities. Goodness, you're such a tricky and petty quibbler.

She has all that energy, and she's brilliant, she's a master of social media, she gets how elections work, and her policy proposals are right on the money.
She won an election with a 20% turnout in her district, which paled to the national turnout of 50%.

She's the second most talked about congressperson, after the Speaker of the House.
This is because of the ignorant, uneducated, and commie things that come out of her mouth.

What does that have to do with the statement by Cortez that is not actionable?

Cortez did not mention anything about repeated calls from the same person.

And you just assumed that a newspaper quote would contain all the evidence that had been gathered so far.....
I did not assume anything. I used the evidence that was posted.
