The Soros-funded activist who harassed former Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator amid the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation will attend President Trump’s State of the Union address as a guest of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Ana Maria Archila, the co-executive director of the Soros-funded Center for Popular Democracy, confirmed she would attend Tuesday’s event at the request of Ocasio-Cortez.

“I just feel particularly moved that in her first participation in the State of the Union, she is inviting me to join and inviting that moment of the elevator, my confrontation with the men who do not understand the life of women and the lives of people who are not in power, that she’s inviting that into the imagination of people again,” Archila told The Intercept.
Infowars.com reports: In September 2018, Archila and another operative accosted Flake in an elevator at Capitol Hill with CNN cameras rolling after he announced he would support Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Shortly after being shamed and humiliated, Flake walked back his support and asked for an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh.
The anti-due process stunt was so transparent that even Trump denounced Soros by name for backing the harassment and disruptions to the confirmation process.
“The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad,” had Trump tweeted. “Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love!”
Justice Kavanaugh was confirmed in October despite Democrats’ efforts to defame him using what then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to as a “wrap-up smear.”
Ocasio-Cortez gleefully hinted at Archila’s attendance on Twitter over the weekend, showing a picture of a lapel pin that read “Well-behaved women rarely make history,” a quote attributed to former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.
Y’all aren’t ready for NY-14’s #StateOfTheUnion guest!
