Ilhan Omar Tries To Distance Herself From Defending Officials Who Targeted Trump

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is known to be one of the Left’s favorite loud lawmakers. She has a reputation of constantly arguing with people on Twitter. But recently, she picked the wrong journalist to target. 

It all started when Glenn Greenwald called out former CIA Director John Brennan for possibly violating the Logan Act which prohibits private citizens from conducting foreign possibly without permission from the US government. The journalist said the former director should not have condemned the assassination of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. Omar said tweeting about it wasn’t a violation of the law. 

Greenwald pointed out that it seemed as though the Progressive was defending moderate Brennan. Omar didn’t like being called out, apparently.

The journalist didn’t back down though.

Not only did Omar defend Brennan, but she lied about it afterward to save face even though her words were there for the entire world to see. It was a weird position to take, and Greenwald was more than happy to call her out for it.
