posted by Hannity Staff - 2.13.19

Embattled Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar viciously attacked the US Special Envoy for Venezuela Elliott Abrams during his congressional testimony Wednesday; bizarrely asking if the official would support a “genocide in Venezuela”

“I fail to understand why members of this committee or the American people should find any testimony that you give today to be truthful,” said Omar.

“It is not right to attack a witness who is not permitted to reply,” said Elliott Abrams.

SHE’S SORRY: Ilhan Omar ‘Unequivocally Apologizes' for Anti-Semitic Twitter Rant

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.11.19

Recently sworn-in Rep. Ilhan Omar “unequivocally apologized” for her anti-Semitic tirade on social media Monday; saying she’s “grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes.”

“We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. That is why I unequivocally apologize,” she posted.

Omar found herself in hot-water from both parties Monday after suggesting America’s support for Israel was directly tied to lobbying efforts and campaign donations.

TIME TO GO: Trump Says Ilhan Omar SHOULD RESIGN from Congress Over Anti-Semitic Rant

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.12.19

President Trump called-on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from the US Congress over her “deep-seated,” anti-Semitic rant accusing pro-Israeli groups of bribing American legislators to support the Jewish State.

The Commander-in-Chief was speaking with reporters at the White House when he abruptly called on the progressive legislator to step down; saying “she didn’t mean a word” of her written apology.

“Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress. Congresswoman Omar, it’s terrible what she said. I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee,” said the President.

“What she said is so deep-seated in her heart, that her lame apology -she didn’t mean a word of it- was just not appropriate. I think she should resign from Congress, frankly,” he added.
