Speaker Pelosi slowly backed-away from her plans to publicly confront Rep. Ilhan Omar Wednesday; saying she does not believe the progressive lawmaker’s comments were “intentionally anti-Semitic.”
“PELOSI just told us she did not think @IlhanMN’s comments were ‘intentionally anti Semitic,’” tweeted a reporter from Politico.
“She said she isn’t sure a resolution will get a vote this week. She said foreign affairs committee is writing it,” he added.
