Mike Pence Calls for Ilhan Omar to Be Removed from House Foreign Affairs Committee
Today, in an interview with Fox News, Vice President Pence called on the Democratic House leadership to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee.
“Ilhan Omar has made statements, anti-Semitic comments against our most cherished ally, Israel, that ought to be rejected by every American,” Pence said in the interview. “And frankly the fact that very recently, she’s been trying to blame the United States of America for the deprivation and the poverty brought on by the dictatorship in Venezuela tells me … Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has no place on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Democratic leadership ought to remove her.”
This is not the first time Pence has called out Omar for her despicable views. “Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress, much less the Foreign Affairs Committee,” Pence said of freshman congresswoman back in February. Democratic leaders have yet to hold her accountable for her anti-Semitism, and it’s unlikely they will now.
Pence made the comments during an interview with Pete Hegseth of FOX News.
Here’s the transcript, via Real Clear Politics:
PETE HEGSETH, ‘FOX & FRIENDS’ CO-HOST: Now in Minnesota we’ve also made a lot of national news because one of our representatives Ilhan Omar, her district is right next door to here. Is she a reflection of the Democrat Party – what is your take today on Ilhan Omar?
VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE: Look Ilhan Omar has made statements, anti-Semitic comments, statements against our most cherished ally Israel, that ought to be rejected by every American. And frankly the fact that very recently, she’s been trying to blame the United States of America for the deprivation and the poverty brought on by the dictatorship in Venezuela. It just, it tells me -look the people of Minnesota will decide whether or not she remains in Congress. But Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has no place on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Democratic leadership ought to remove her.

Pence is exactly right to say this.
The left will false cry racism and Islamophobia but it won’t change the truth.
Omar should be removed from the committee.
