WASHINGTON — A dozen House Democrats publicly criticized their colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., late Wednesday, accusing her of giving "cover" to terrorist and suggesting her remarks about Hamas and the Taliban reflect a "deep-seated prejudice." “Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided,” the group, led by Rep. Brad Schneider, of Illinois, said in a statement, urging Omar to "clarify" her remarks. Omar responded to her critics by calling their statement "offensive" and defending her initial remarks. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” she wrote on Twitter, echoing her remarks on the video. In a follow-up tweet, Omar defend her initial remarks: “Citing an open case against Israel, US, Hamas & Taliban in the [The International Criminal Court] isn’t comparison or from 'deeply seated prejudice'.

WASHINGTON — A group of ultraconservative House Republicans, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., are discussing launching an "America First Caucus" that would protect "Anglo-Saxon political traditions." "There is an America First Caucus," he said, confirming that Greene is involved. The formation of a caucus could be another sign of an emboldened faction of House Republicans who are known for nativist ideas and have been criticized by Democrats as racist. "Be on the look out for the release of the America First Caucus platform when it’s announced to the public very soon," he said. The development received immediate pushback Friday, including from Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., who encouraged people to ignore the caucus at risk of amplifying their message.

Iowa Election Challenge Alarms Some House Democrats

WASHINGTON—More House Democrats are expressing concern over potentially having to vote later this year on whether to overturn a Republican congresswoman’s razor-thin victory in Iowa. Some House Democrats have recently shared their concerns with Democratic leaders over having to potentially vote to overturn a state-certified election in Iowa and conveyed to them that they might not have enough votes to prevail, according to lawmakers and aides. Democrats currently hold a narrow 219-211 majority and can lose no more than three votes on measures opposed by all Republicans. “Losing a House election by six votes is painful for Democrats. But overturning it in the House would be even more painful for America,” Rep. Dean Phillips (D., Minn.) said on Twitter this week.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives are warning Democrats not to set a “dangerous precedent” by challenging the certified results of a disputed House election in Iowa. FILE PHOTO: A view of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC, U.S. January 19, 2021. State election officials certified the results and Miller-Meeks was sworn into office in January.

As debate progressed in the House chamber over a Republican protest of Arizona’s Electoral College votes for President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., few lawmakers knew of the commotion. Congressional leaders were quickly ushered out, as staff aides urged lawmakers in the gallery and on the floor to remain calm. “This is because of you,” Representative Dean Phillips, Democrat of Minnesota, yelled from the gallery at his Republican colleagues. But we need help here. In the House, just after 2:30 p.m., a police officer stepped on the dais and informed lawmakers that they might need to duck under their chairs.

That $3 trillion bill was an opening bid by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But throughout the spring and part of the summer, Republicans refused to counter with a bill of their own. Now, House and Senate leaders are negotiating an approximately $900 billion bill that would be attached to a $1.4 trillion measure to fund federal programs through next September. The government funding-coronavirus aid bill, if it comes together, would also have an immediate impact on states that are grappling with a shortage of funds for administering the newly-developed COVID-19 vaccine. Republicans say it could be a back-door way of providing aid to states experiencing fiscal problems unrelated to the pandemic.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bipartisan, $908 billion coronavirus aid plan gained momentum in the U.S. Congress on Thursday as conservative lawmakers expressed their support and Senate and House of Representatives leaders huddled. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which represents businesses across the United States, on Wednesday had warm words for the $908 billion bill. Senator Lindsey Graham added: “The $908 (billion) bill, that’s the one I support.”Earlier on Thursday, Trump said he thought negotiators were “getting very close” to a deal, but he did not elaborate. Congress is working on a $1.4 trillion funding bill to avert agency shutdowns in mid-December and leaders hope to attach a coronavirus aid bill to that must-do measure -- if only they can reach a deal. But this week, Pelosi and Schumer said the bipartisan, $908 billion aid bill should be the basis of new negotiations.
