Ilhan Omar Hits Back at McCarthy Threat

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) fired back at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) after he vowed to remove Omar from her committee posts if elected Speaker, The Hill reports.

Said Omar: “From the moment I was elected, the Republican Party has made it their mission to use fear, xenophobia, Islamophobia and racism to target me on the House Floor and through millions of dollars of campaign ads.”

She added: “Whether it is Marjorie Taylor Greene holding a gun next to my head in campaign ads or Donald Trump threatening to ‘send me back’ to my country (despite the fact that I have been a proud citizen of the United States for more than 20 years), this constant stream of hate has led to hundreds of death threats and credible plots against me and my family.”
