If one thing has been made clear, Ilhan Omar cares about herself and no one else.
She isn’t even loyal to those within her own Party.
And what she just said is bad news for the Democrats trying to impeach Trump.
Far-left Democrats are in a celebratory mode right now.
Finally, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is the closest thing to a leader in the Party, has come out in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump.
She is pushing forward impeachment proceedings, a feat that would be impossible without her support.
But even with Pelosi being the only hope for impeachment, she still has a lot of people to convince.
The majority of Democrats in the House back the measure.
But she needs pretty much all of them if she hopes to actually jumpstart her inquiry.
And the only holdouts left with her announcement of support are moderate Democrats, many of which are in competitive Districts that aren’t reliably Democrat.
In order to get those people on her side, she needs to prove that supporting the measure will not be political suicide.
But she already has her biggest hurdle in proving that, and it is Ilhan Omar, who is the most controversial person in Congress.
Since getting into office, Omar has done everything in her power to harm the Democrat Party by making insane statements.
Right out of the gate, the Muslim Rep. began making anti-Semitic comments so vile that the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan began calling her “the most important member of Congress.”
And just as that scandal began to wear down, she came out and called the Islamic terrorist attack on 9/11 simply an event where “some people did something.”
Following that statement, public opinion was against her, with Omar holding only a 9% approval rating.
And now, despite the intense disdain for her, Omar is spearheading impeachment efforts.
Just hours after Pelosi’s announcement, CNN dragged her in front of their cameras to talk about the measure.
Omar quickly praised Pelosi and made it clear that she will take a leading role in this measure.
“Many of us have been talking about how this president thinks he’s above the law, and how we needed to hold him accountable,” Omar said Tuesday. “And I’m very excited that she’s finally onboard and that we can start this process with leadership in tow.”
“The speaker has said today that sometimes the time finds us, and we are at a moment where the time has found us,” she continued on to say.
“It is time for us to act, and I’m excited for that to take place,” Omar added.
The point of Pelosi getting on board was to convince hold-outs within the Democrat Party to get on board.
Prior to Pelosi, the main figures pushing for impeachment were Omar and her toxic “squad” of friends.
And now, with the help of CNN, it appears that Omar will be the leading voice in this fight.
