Press Release

MINNEAPOLIS—Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) released the following clarification on her questions during the House Foreign Affairs Committee this week.

"On Monday, I asked Secretary of State Antony Blinken about ongoing International Criminal Court investigations. 

"To be clear: the conversation was about accountability for specific incidents regarding those ICC cases, not a moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel.  

"I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems."
