House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy vowed to strip Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) of her committee spot if the GOP wins back the House next election cycle.

The comments from McCarthy came in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) inaction against Ilhan Omar for her consistent anti-Semitic and anti-American comments.

“I will promise you this: If we are fortunate enough to have the majority, Omar would not be serving on Foreign Affairs or anybody that has an anti-Semitic, anti-American view. That is not productive and that is not right,” McCarthy asserted.
