House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during an event, Friday, to discuss the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan said that no further action needs to be taken on far-left radical Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) remarks comparing the United States and Israel to terrorists.
A reporter asked the speaker, during the event, if “any further action should be taken against Rep. Omar for her comments.”

“No,” Pelosi said, cutting the reporter off.
Pelosi continued to say, “I think that she, clarified her remarks, and that was, uh, uh, we accept that and, uh, she, she, she has a point that she wanted to make, and she has a right to make that point,” adding that she Omar already tried to clarify her remarks:

Breitbart News previously reported Omar made remarks during a hearing she attended virtually to question Secretary of State Antony Blinken. The tweet in which Omar attached a video of her remarks said, “We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.”
The tweet continued, “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”
Watch:

We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.
We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.

Eventually, Omar scrambled as she tried to clean up her mess by attempting to clarify the initial comment made.
In a statement, she said, “On Monday, I asked Secretary of State Antony Blinken about an ongoing International Criminal Court Investigation.”

“The conversation was about accountability for specific incidents regarding those ICC cases, not a moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel,” she noted, “I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.”

“I mean, there are some members that would like to be on it,” Pelosi added.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is considering naming GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger to join the selected committee investigating the deadly January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol. During a news conference on Capitol Hill on Thursday morning, Pelosi said, “We’ll see,” when asked about the potential appointment.”I mean, there are some members that would like to be on it,” Pelosi added. “But, we’ll see.”

Rep. Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat who’s been appointed chairman of the new committee, said Thursday that adding Kinzinger to the panel has been discussed with the speaker. Thompson said if Pelosi signs off, Kinzinger will be a “welcome addition.”

Kinzinger, a vocal Republican critic of former President Donald Trump and who was one of 10 GOP House members to vote for his second impeachment, would join Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming as the only Republicans on the new select committee. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pulled his five GOP members from the panel, after Pelosi rejected two of McCarthy’s five choices — Reps. Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio.

Kinzinger refused to comment about his potential appointment to the panel on Thursday morning. The committee is scheduled to hold its first hearing next week.

Pelosi Rejects 2 GOP Nominees For The Jan. 6 Panel On The Grounds of their Statement And Action

Pelosi said she would accept McCarthy’s other nominees: Reps. Rodney Davis of Illinois, Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota and Troy Nehls of Texas.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has vetoed two Republican nominees to the panel set to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Citing “statements and actions” made by the pair — Reps. Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio, Pelosi said she was rejecting their nominations “with respect for the integrity of the investigation.”

“The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision,” Pelosi said.

The two lawmakers were among five that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy nominated to the committee. One other GOP member, Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, was named to the panel by Pelosi.

Pelosi said she would accept McCarthy’s other nominees: Reps. Rodney Davis of Illinois, Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota and Troy Nehls of Texas.

Banks, Jordan and Nehls voted against certifying the election, the proceedings that the rioters disrupted.

McCarthy called Pelosi’s move “an egregious abuse of power and will irreparably damage this institution.”

“Denying the voices of members who have served in the military and law enforcement, as well as leaders of standing committees, has made it undeniable that this panel has lost all legitimacy and credibility and shows the Speaker is more interested in playing politics than seeking the truth,” he said in a statement. “Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts.”

Attempts to establish a bipartisan panel to look into the storming of the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob have been marked by partisan squabbling. Senate Republicans blocked an attempt to name an independent commission, which led to a party-line vote to create a select committee.

Pelosi said she spoke to McCarthy Tuesday morning about the impact Banks’ and Jordan’s appointments “may have on the integrity of the investigation.”

The Democratic members of the panel are: Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, the panel’s chair; Reps. Zoe Lofgren of California, Adam Schiff of California, Jamie Raskin of Maryland, Pete Aguilar of California, Stephanie Murphy of Florida and Elaine Luria of Virginia.

The panel is expected to hold its first hearing next week.
