UNITED STATES – The Republican-led United States House of Representatives voted on Thursday to pass a resolution to remove democrat Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

House republicans have argued Omar should not serve on the committee because of past statements she made about Israel, which members of both parties have criticized as antisemitic.

Democrats arguing though that the resolution amounts to an act of political revenge and that the Minnesota democrat has been held accountable for her past remarks.

Omar was defiant in a floor speech ahead of the vote.
