Washington, D.C. Assertion from MoveOn Govt Director Rahna Epting on the improper and Islamophobic try to take away Congresswoman Ilhan Omar from her Home Overseas Affairs Committee project as a part of Kevin McCarthy’s corrupt cut price with MAGA:

“The tried removing of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar from a committee she has served on for greater than two years—and has in depth credentials to proceed to serve on—can be improper and unwarranted and would present how radical and out of contact the Republican Occasion has grow to be. Republicans are clearly extra interested by political revenge than governing. This proposed vote can be an illustration of how weak Speaker McCarthy is, as he has as soon as once more caved to essentially the most radical components of his caucus. It’s clear GOP management needs to improperly take away Consultant Omar from her committee project due to her identification and her background. 

“And the vote can be in stark distinction to the earlier bipartisan vote to take away Representatives Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene for his or her racist and violent threats in opposition to fellow members that are actually being ignored by McCarthy in alternate for MAGA permitting him to grow to be speaker. 

“Whereas Kevin McCarthy and Home Republicans keep centered on launching revenge political assaults and advancing their MAGA agenda, we all know that Congresswoman Omar will proceed to place individuals over politics and assist her constituents in Minneapolis-St. Paul and all through Minnesota.”
