House Republican lawmakers are seeking this week to oust US Representative Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, from her committee assignments as Democrats push for similar action against Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, Fox News reported on Tuesday.
A proposed amendment calls for Omar to be removed from her committee assignments "in light of conduct she has exhibited," Fox News said.
In the amendment, Republicans argue that she has made antisemitic comments that are grounds for dismissal, the report added.
Congressional Democrats on Monday said they would seek to strip conspiracy theory-backing Greene of committee assignments over incendiary comments including denying school shootings took place and expressing support for violence. Greene gained a great deal of media attention when it was revealed she posted on social media three years ago that "Rothschild Inc" is connected to a massive forest fire which started when secret laser beams were fired from space.
