Ilhan Omar is one of Congress’s most infamous members. However, the Minnesota Congresswoman is now paying the price for her previous troubles.
You won’t believe this hilarious reason Ilhan Omar lost her job.
Kevin McCarthy, the newly elected Speaker of the House, indicated that he was following through on his promise to remove Democrats Ilhan Omar, Eric Swalwell, and Adam Schiff from their committees.
McCarthy expelled Schiff and Swalwell from the House Intelligence Committee because Schiff lied for years about the Russian collusion hoax and Swalwell compromised himself by having sexual contact with a Communist Chinese spy.
“Swalwell can’t get a security clearance in the private sector. I’m not going to give him a government security clearance,” McCarthy explained. “Schiff has lied too many times to the American public. He should not be on Intel.”
McCarthy told Punch Bowl News that he was simply following Nancy Pelosi’s pattern from the last Congress.
“I made all [three] cases before. It’s not like it’s anything new… Remember, this is what Nancy Pelosi, this is the type of Congress she wanted to have,” McCarthy stated.
McCarthy will need to win a vote in the whole House to remove Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Republicans will seek to punish Omar for a lengthy history of anti-Semitic remarks.
In a tweet, Omar promoted the conspiracy idea that secret Jewish money dominates American politics, saying, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”
Ilhan Omar also promoted the anti-Semitic myth that Jews had dual loyalty to the US and Israel.
“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” Omar said.
She later doubled down, saying that “I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee.”
Finally, Omar equated Israel’s defense to terrorism, adding, “we have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the US, Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”
“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” Omar concluded.
When Democrats controlled the House, they refused to hold Omar accountable.
Now that the GOP is in control, they will take steps to ensure that Omar’s history of racist remarks is not forgotten.
