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.

Rep. Omar currently sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and could be responsible for drafting key language contained in the resolution.
