Campaign calls for controversial Democrat to be ‘removed from Congress’
A new petition hosted on the official White House website is demanding an immediate investigation into radical Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) by Congress.
The petition calls on lawmakers to remove Rep. Omar from Congress if it is deemed that she is not loyal to America.
Omar has recently drawn heavy criticism from President Donald Trump along with her fellow members of the so-called “AOC Squad.”
Speaking during an impromptu press conference on the White House lawn on Wednesday, Trump said “there’s a lot of talk” about Omar being “married to her brother.”
The official “We the People” petition, hosted on the White House website, is titled “Conduct an Immediate Congressional Investigation Into Rep. Ilhan Omar” and reads as follows:
“We ask the President to initiate a Congressional investigation into Rep. Ilhan Omar’s background to determine if she should face expulsion from Congress.
“Rep. Omar’s oath of loyalty to the United States of America is in serious doubt.
“Omar made light of the September 11 terror attack by referring to the atrocity as ‘some people did something.’
“Omar was recorded laughing about and making light of Islamic terrorism and the Al-Qaeda threat.
“Omar refused to condemn the terrorist attack by a self-described Antifa member, who tried to firebomb an ICE facility in Washington State.
“Omar also defended jihadists in her state who chose to join ISIS, saying they should get lighter punishments.
“There are also severe allegations concerning the question of whether Omar married her own brother.”
The White House website promises that petitions will receive an official response when they meet their goal of 100,000 signatures.
According to Summit.news, Article I, Section 5 of the United States Constitution details the measures necessary to initiate an expulsion of a sitting member of Congress, which requires the concurrence of two-thirds of the members.
Earlier this week, House Democrats tried to pass a resolution officially condemning Trump’s “racist” tweets.
…..Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country. Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%. Nancy Pelosi tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party. See you in 2020!

“Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game,” Trump responded.
“Republicans should not show ‘weakness’ and fall into their trap,” he added.
“This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country.”
Rep. Al Green (D-TX) offered a resolution to impeach President Trump on Wednesday in response to his comments on Twitter.
The House of Representatives voted to table the resolution by a vote of 332-95.
