"Squad" member Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., retweeted a video produced by an anti-Israel organization previously investigated by the FBI for possible terrorist ties.
On Tuesday, one day after she posted a now-infamous tweet likening the U.S. and Israel to terror groups Hamas and the Taliban, Omar retweeted a post including a video produced by the International Solidarity Movement (ISM).
The video shared by Omar depicted a Palestinian child being carried off by Israeli police forces as an explosion is heard in the background.
Omar shared the video of the Palestinian child the day after tweeting that the U.S. and Israel, like Hamas and the Taliban, had committed "unthinkable atrocities."
The tweet was met with a sharp rebuke from both sides of the aisle, with Democratic leadership issuing their own condemnation of Omar’s words after the congresswoman posted a release clarifying her tweet.
When asked if House Democrats would be pursuing further action against Omar during a press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., didn’t even let the reporter finish his question before answering in the negative.
"I think that she clarified her remarks and we accept that, and she has a point that she wanted to make and she has a right to make that point," Pelosi said. "There's some unease about how it was interpreted."
"She made her clarification," Pelosi added before moving onto the next question.

Lock her up!
If anyone thinks these Muzzies are here to assimilate and make this a better country for everyone including Jews had better wake up.
This is what our government has become. Scary and sad.
This is what happens when you grow up malnourished, and there’s Millions just like her.
“investigated by the FBI”?
The same FBI that refuses to go after the Clinton and Biden crime syndicates?
FBI is a f-ing joke.
If we had the kind of society and justice system she’s pimping, she’d have eaten a bullet by now.
If my memory is accurate, a Republican congresswoman was stripped of her committee positions for a remark that was deemed to be racist. The double standard continues.
The DNC is more like the NAZI Socialists than the Stalin Communists.
I saw the title, was trying to figure out who/which Omar.
Story tells in the first sentence (Ill ‘dog in heat’ Omar).. not even her real name though :p
Well, of course she did. For democRATS there are NO consequences. She watches a stolen election and realizes she is now in a protected class. A political party with no morals, no conscience, and immune to the rule of law.
