Nancy Pelosi admitted a major retreat that took everyone by surprise

Nancy Pelosi is known as a bare knuckles political brawler.

That’s why her latest comments caused heads to turn around Washington.

Nancy Pelosi admitted a major retreat and it took everyone by surprise.

Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s under fire over an anti-Semitic tweet she sent out comparing Israel to terrorist groups like Hamas and the Taliban.

“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” Omar posted on social media. “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”

12 Jewish Democrats released a statement blasting Omar for those disgusting remarks.

Omar later “clarified” her comments claiming she didn’t say what she clearly said.

That led to a statement from Pelosi and other Democrat leaders trying to move past this fight that threatens to tear their party apart.

CNN’s Dan Bash asked Pelosi about her statement claiming it “rebuked” Omar.

“You and other top House Democrats released a pretty rare statement rebuking her for appearing to ‘draw false equivalencies’ between the United States and Israel and terrorist organizations Hamas and Taliban,” Bash said to Pelosi. “She clarified. She said that she was in no way equating them.”

Pelosi interjected claiming Democrats did not “rebuke” Omar, but instead “thanked” Omar for issuing a clarification.

“We did not rebuke her. We thanked, acknowledged that she made a clarification,” Pelosi stated.

Nancy Pelosi is known for running the Democrat Caucus with an iron fist.

But Pelosi is clearly backing down from exercising any discipline over Omar over fear it could torpedo the Democrats’ ability to pass bills through the House.

The “Squad” – of which Omar is a founding member – saw its ranks grow to seven members after the 2020 election.

Depending on special election results, Democrats can only afford to lose up to five votes before any bill dies.

Omar and the “Squad” have the votes to tank Pelosi’s legislative agenda so Pelosi is standing down on any effort to hold Omar accountable for her bigoted comments.
