Ilhan Omar is one of the most notorious members of Congress.
But now the Minnesota Congresswoman is paying the price for her past controversies.
And Ilhan Omar lost her job for one reason that will have you jumping for joy.
Newly minted Speaker of the House Kevin McCarty announced he was following through on his word to kick Democrats Ilhan Omar, Eric Swalwell, and Adam Schiff off their committees.
McCarthy booted Schiff and Swalwell off the House Intelligence Committee due to the fact that Schiff spent years lying about the Russian collusion hoax and Swalwell compromised himself through a sexual relationship 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 he was merely following the precedent set by Nancy Pelosi in 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 full House of Representatives to boot Omar off the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Republicans will look to sanction Omar for her long history of anti-Semitic comments.
Omar advanced a conspiracy theory that secret Jewish money controls American politics in a post on Twitter where she said that “it’s all about the Benjamins baby.”
Ilhan Omar also advanced an anti-Semitic trope that Jews possessed dual loyalty to the United States 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.”
And finally, Omar compared Israel defending itself to acts of terrorism by writing that “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.
Democrats refused to hold Omar accountable when they ran the House.
Now that the GOP has power, they will take steps to make sure Omar’s history of racist comments does not go unpunished.
