Rep. Steve Scalise joined the growing chorus of legislators calling for the removal of Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee Tuesday; saying she should no longer have access to classified briefings regarding the State of Israel after her anti-Semitic rant.

Scalise: Dems Condemning Rep. Omar With 'Empty Words' Unless They Kick Her Off Committees

“Right now, she sits on the Foreign Affairs Committee. She’s able to get classified briefings on foreign policy, especially as it relates to Israel. She’s made statements, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish statements, aligned herself with anti-Semitic people as well,” said Scalise.

“She should be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, Nancy Pelosi should remove her immediately,” he added.
