Republicans to try and Remove Rep. Omar from Committees

A group of House Republicans will introduce a resolution to try and have Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar removed from her committee assignments as Democrats continue to call for Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to be removed from hers.

Republican Reps. Brian Babin, Jeff Duncan, Jody Hice, Andy Biggs and Ronny Jackson sponsored the proposed amendment which calls for Omar to be stripped of her committee assignments due to anti-Semitic comments she has made in the past, Fox News reported. Omar apologized to a group of Jewish organizations in a phone call in 2019 after she received criticism for a tweet that many considered to be anti-Semitic.

Democrats will send a resolution to the House floor Wednesday in an effort to strip Greene of her committee assignments. She currently sits on the House Education and Budget committees. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy could strip her of her committee assignments, but Democrats have threatened the resolution otherwise.

“House Democrats have embarked on a dangerous slope in attempting to punish a Republican Member of Congress for thoughts and opinions she shared as a private citizen before being sworn into office. Holding Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene accountable for statements that she made before running for Congress, while not being willing to hold sitting Democrat Members of Congress accountable for their offensive and intemperate statements is another example of blatant hypocrisy by Congressional Democrats,” Biggs told the Daily Caller when asked about the proposed amendment.
