Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams GOP after House votes to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar from key committee

View descriptionShare

The Republican-led House voted to remove Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over past statements she’s made related to Israel, with some members of both parties considering it antisemitic. Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called Omar’s removal a “continued attack” against women of color. Ocasio-Cortez tells AC360 ousting Omar and other Democrats from their committees is “about political revenge.”

Plus, the Pentagon is tracking a suspected Chinese spy balloon flying over the United States. Retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove joins AC360 to discuss what the potential downside is of shooting it down and what kind of intelligence the balloon could be trying to collect.
