WATCH: Pelosi says “we did not rebuke” Omar and calls her “a valued member of our caucus”

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.
