(Washington, DC)  —  Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is firing back after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy vowed to remove her from her committee post.  McCarthy threatened to strip several prominent house Democrats of their committee positions if he’s elected Speaker.  Omar said stripping her from the House Foreign Affairs Committee does nothing to address “inflation, health care or solve the climate crisis.”  She added that Republicans have used fear, Islamophobia, and racism to target her.
