Appearing on “Outnumbered” Ari Fleisher called Rep. Ilhan Omar “a menace” after she retweeted an anti-Israel org who has been investigated by the FBI for terrorist ties.
Per Fox News “In 2010, ISM was deemed by the Anti-defamation League (ADL) as one of the top 10 anti-Israel organizations in the country. The FBI has also investigated ISM for possible links to terrorists, but FBI documents reported in 2020 by the Intercept did not detail any charges levied.”
The video shared by Ilhan Omar depicted a Palestinian child being carried off by Israeli police forces as an explosion is heard in the background.
During a CNN appearance with Dana Bash, Pelosi denied rebuking Rep. Ilhan Omar after her controversial comments.
“We did not rebuke” Omar, Pelosi told Bash. “We acknowledged that she made a clarification.”
Pressed further, Pelosi called Omar “a valuable member of our caucus.”
“What I’m saying is end of subject, she clarified, we thanked her, end of subject. What happened is a reflection of the respect we have for our member,” she added.
This comes after Omar sparked backlash with this tweet.
