“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said when he becomes Speaker of the House again he’ll boot ‘Squad’ member Rep. Ilhan Omar from her position on the House Foreign Affairs Committee over ‘anti-Semitic’ remarks. ‘We watch anti-Semitism grow, not just on our campuses, but we watched it grow In the halls of Congress,’ McCarthy said at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s 2022 leadership meeting in Las Vegas on Saturday, Fox News reported. ‘I promised you last year that as speaker she will no longer be on Foreign Affairs, and I’m keeping that promise,’ he added, to cheers from the crowd, video posted to his Twitter shows. After Republicans barely secured a majority in the House, the California lawmaker was given the nod by the party to be the next Speaker of the House in January following a congressional vote.” (11/20/22)
