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.
