Rep. Ilhan Omar gets in heated clash with Trump envoy at Venezuela hearing

"Mr. Adams (sic)," Omar said, calling Abrams by an incorrect name, "in 1991 you pleaded guilty to two counts of withholding information from Congress regarding your involvement in the Iran-Contra affair, for which you were later pardoned by President George H.W. Bush. I fail to understand why members of this committee or the American people should find any testimony that you give today to be truthful."

When Abrams tried to respond, Omar interrupted him, saying "it wasn't a question," to which the diplomat countered, "It was an attack. It is not right members of this committee can attack a witness who is not permitted to reply."

At some point in the near future she will get her comeuppance. I just hope it is public and painfully embarrassing. This freshman class of representatives are way too high on themselves; especially the far left/Socialists. If their own party does not take control of this now, it may be too late once they see the tidal wave.

I've always thought him to come across as rather intelligent. Hell, he was vocally against Trump during the election and got passed over for a job with the Administration because of it.

That's the extent of my thoughts on him. What makes him 'scumbag' worthy?

He orchestrated a big portion of the anti-communist strategy in Latin America that basically created the deaths squads in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua.

Edit: He also helped cover up Iran-Contra and, sure enough, was pardoned for his crimes later.
