They thanked Ocasio-Cortez for her participation. "This is to show that we are here to back up bold action and that, you know she will be supported in that".

Come January, the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez is set to become the youngest member of Congress.

"I want to make sure that Bob Mueller has the advantage of the evidence that we've been able to gather, but equally important that Bob Mueller's in a position to determine whether people knowingly committed perjury before our committee", stated Schiff. "It's not just about confrontation but in a way, it's about real meaningful unity behind our goals that's what this is about".

Pelosi embraced the protesters and said she planned on launching a special committee to focus on the climate crisis. The California Democrat said in a statement that she welcomes the activists.

"We welcome the presence of these activists, and we strongly urge the Capitol Police to allow them to continue to organize and participate in our democracy".

As of now, it remains unclear whether or not Ocasio-Cortez will support Pelosi's bid for House speaker.

She added: "Next, we should define the standards of that committee. Not have officials appointed to it that accept fossil fuel industry contributions".

Pelosi, who was in NY on Tuesday, has been a major advocate for the battle against climate change and the protestors were hoping to pressure the presumptive next House speaker to push to put climate change on the agenda when the new Congress starts session in January.
