Moments ago, GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted “Last week, Ilhan Omar attacked Jewish members of Congress for not being ‘partners in justice.’ Joe Biden still has not condemned her comment.”
“Make no mistake, anti-Semitic violence is on the rise because DEMOCRATS give anti-Semites a seat at their table,” she added.

Appearing on CNN, Jake Tapper asked Omar “Do you understand why some of your fellow House Democrats, especially Jews, find that language anti-Semitic?”
“I’ve welcomed, you know, anytime my colleagues have asked to have a conversation, to learn from them, for them to learn from me,” Omar responded. “I think it’s really important for these members to realize that they haven’t been partners in justice. They haven’t been, you know, equally engaging in seeking justice around the world.
“And I think, you know, I will continue to do that. It is important for me, as someone who knows what it feels like to experience injustice in ways that many of my colleagues don’t, to be a voice in finding accountability, asking for mechanisms for justice for those who are maligned, oppressed, and who have had injustice done to them,” she added.
