House Republican lawmakers are seeking this week to oust U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, from her committee assignments as Democrats push for similar action against Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, Fox News reported on Tuesday.
A proposed amendment calls for Omar to be removed from her committee assignments “in light of conduct she has exhibited,” Fox News said.
Your daily reminder that @Ilhan Omar:— Liz Wheeler (@Liz_Wheeler) February 3, 2021
– Supports BDS
– Accused U.S. Jews of duel loyalty
– Said Israel hypnotized the world
– Said pro-Israel politicos are paid off by Jews
– Thinks Israel has no right to exist
So why is she still seated on House Foreign Affairs Committee?!
In the amendment, Republicans argue that she has made anti-Semitic comments as well as apologies for radical Islamic terrorism that are grounds for dismissal, the report added.
Congressional Democrats on Monday said they would seek to strip conspiracy theory-backing Greene of committee assignments over incendiary comments including denying school shootings took place and expressing support for violence.
