Rep. Lauren Boebert (R., Colo.) on Wednesday lit into Democratic representatives Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Eric Swalwell (Calif.), questioning whether the "jihad ‘Squad' member" and California lawmaker should keep their committee assignments.
"The jihad ‘Squad' member from Minnesota has paid her husband—and not her ‘brother' husband, the other one—over a million dollars in campaign funds," Boebert said of Omar, who funneled $2.7 million to her husband's consulting firm during the 2020 election cycle. "This member is allowed on the Foreign Affairs Committee while praising terrorists."
"My colleague and three-month presidential candidate from California, who is on the Intelligence Committee, slept with Fang Fang, a Chinese spy," the Colorado congresswoman said of Swalwell, who was implicated in an alleged Chinese "honeypot" operation last year. "Let me say that again: A member of Congress who receives classified briefings was sleeping with the enemy. This is unacceptable."
