Ro Khanna on Rep. Omar: I’d Absolutely Oppose Removing Her Off the Foreign Affairs Committee, She Misspoke

‘The piling on is just totally uncalled-for’

EXCERPT:

MITCHELL: "Will you oppose any Republican efforts, Kevin McCarthy and others talking about trying to force Omar off the Foreign Affairs Committee?"
KHANNA: "Absolutely. She’s a freshman member of Congress, young in her career. Yes, she misspoke. Yes, that was wrong. Yes, she should apologize. But the piling on is just totally uncalled-for, especially when you look at the history of comments from many Republicans and many other members who have misspoken and they didn’t face those consequences.”
