Far-left Democrat Ilhan Omar suggested that she and her fellow colleagues, Representatives Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff, being kicked off their respective committees is a “threat to national security.”
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy formally rejected a last-ditch bid for Schiff and Swalwell to serve on the House Intelligence Committee, noting “integrity matters” earlier this week.
Swalwell has engaged in a reported relationship with a Chinese spy while Schiff has been accused of leaking classified information in order to propagate the Russia collusion hoax.
Omar is being considered by McCarthy for removal from the Foreign Affairs Committee, though he is receiving some pushback from squishy Republicans and would require a majority vote in the full House for the move to succeed.
The Minnesota lawmaker has described McCarthy’s efforts as “not only a political stunt, but also a blow to the integrity of our democratic institution and a threat to national security.”

Ilhan Omar Mad About Committee Moves
Ilhan Omar’s response to the committee rejections of her colleagues was at least a little more measured than say, Swalwell, whose estrogen-laden response included claims that ‘ZOMG, McCarthy is trying to get me murdered!’
Swalwell: “The cost are the death threats that Miss Omar, myself, and Mr. Schiff keep getting because McCarthy continues to aim and project these smears against us… It makes us believe there is an intent behind it.” pic.twitter.com/XRqefukgQX

Schiff responded by posting an embarrassing video to TikTok – an app closely tied to the Chinese Communist Party – about losing his committee spot.

Still, it’s funny hearing Omar discuss the “integrity of our democratic institution” and feigning concern for our national security.
She has, after all, been accused of funneling campaign cash to her husband, has a consistent history of anti-Semitic remarks, and in 2019 the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on documents raising questions as to whether she previously married her own brother as a means to “skirt immigration laws.”
Integrity? Not exactly a priority for Ms. Omar.
Not to mention, she equated actions taken by the United States and Israel to those perpetrated by the Taliban and Hamas. As such, her role on the House Foreign Affairs Committee should have been terminated long, long ago.
This is no political stunt! You are a threat to national security! https://t.co/8s7UhfcYER

Says Removing Her From Africa Subcommittee Is … You Guessed It
For those disappointed that Omar hadn’t taken the typical route and blamed everything on racism, you’re in for a treat.
Omar, a member of the Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, and Global Human Rights, accused McCarthy of all sorts of bigotry for potentially having her removed.
“As the only African born, not being on the Africa subcommittee is not just an elimination of a unique voice but an elimination of all the voices that have never been heard on a committee on the continent,” she tweeted.
“It’s racist, xenophobic and discriminatory.”
Whoa! That’s a race card trifecta right there.
As the only African born, not being on the Africa subcommittee is not just an elimination of a unique voice but an elimination of all the voices that have never been heard on a committee on the continent.
It’s racist, xenophobic and discriminatory.

This is all old hat for Omar, who fled Somalia with her family as a child.
In 2019 she penned an op-ed column in the New York Times where she claimed to have experienced prejudice in America since day one “as a visibly Muslim woman.”
Representative Victoria Spartz (R-IN) and Nancy Mace (R-SC) have said they oppose removing Omar from the committee.

Funny how they complain now . Blaming the Republicans for being selective on who is allowed to be on a committee. But they couldn’t care less if all Republicans were censored Or kept of of any committee. They need to STFU and move on!
Omar has got to go. It’s always about her and never about what’s good for the country. Please, be gone woman!
“It makes us believe there is an intent behind it.”
Just because Eric Swalwell believes something in no way makes it true.
same goes for the rest of them
I am for removing Ilhan Omar from her committees. She should not be allowed to be in Congress given her blatant disregard for our laws and her hatred for this country. Project Veritas recorded her campaign manager paying Somali immigrants for their votes for her. She has misused campaign funds for herself and slanders our middle-east ally, Israel. She does NOT belong in Congress and should be removed, if not from the legislature, then at least from her committees.
just get rid of her
and add AOC
Got to agree – kick that cow out of all committees. She should have a hard time getting a job as a street cleaner!
Being on the African committee? But never spoken out for them? That cold! She should had focus on seeing that Africa tribe stop selling SLAVERY! But she attack ISRAEL AND AMERICA! Two country that follows God laws! And two countries that help each other to try to maintain peace in the mideast! But show her support to two terrorists group that used the Palestinian people as human sheild!
Gee , “I guess something happened”
little whinny babies.. boo hoo… they should have thought about that when they continued to get in front of people and Lie constantly… Omar is NOT a good person for the Foreign Affairs committee.. she entered our country illegally by marrying her own brother.. pathetic… She hates israel… she talks like she’s anti-America….removing her is best… same with Whinny Schiff and Swalwell… Schiff and Swalwell does nothing but lie over and over.. makes up things.. can’t proof the garbage they have told to the American people… They have No business being in Congress as all… best thing for our country was to remove them from the Intel Committee… Give them each a nice pacifier to suck on… big whinny babies – They are the reason they were removed… they did it to themselves…
It’s a crying shame.
I laughed so hard I cried.
Any Republican who thinks these three people should not be kicked off of all Committees is a RINO and needs to be voted out next election, REMEMBER who votes to keep these liars on Committees..
Did she ask for today’s shootings in Israel?
