Ilhan Omar Calls for Kavanaugh and Trump Impeachment, Attacks Netanyahu

Controversial Democrat lawmaker Ilhan Omar has now joined the Chorus of Democrats calling for impeachment of Kavanaugh.

Nothing terrifies this corrupt president more than the idea of Congress upholding the rule of law.

We must open impeachment inquiries against Trump *and* Kavanaugh immediately. It’s our constitutional duty.

Per NBCNews, a slew of prominent Democrats called on Congress to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after allegations of sexual misconduct that had once threatened to torpedo his nomination to the bench resurfaced, even as President Donald Trump continued to defend him.

“I sat through those hearings,” Sen. Kamala Harris, a member of the Senate Judiciary Commitee and a Democratic presidential candidate, tweeted on Sunday. “Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.”

Meanwhile Omar is hoping Benjamim Netanyahu, leader of Israel, will be voted out in order to pave the way for a “two state solution.”

Politico reports with Israel heading to the polls Tuesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar said Sunday she hoped the country would break from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s agenda and defended her support for the Boycott, Divestment, Sanction movement.

Speaking with Margaret Brennan on CBS’ “Face the Nation,“ Omar responded to a move last month by the Israeli government to bar Omar from visiting the country over her support for the BDS movement. The Minnesota Democrat and fellow progressive congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) were not permitted to enter Israel after President Donald Trump lobbied Israeli leaders to keep them out — setting off a backlash from both sides of the aisle to a perceived act of disrespect against the U.S. Congress.

“What is really important is for people to understand that you have to give people the opportunity to seek the kind of justice they want in a peaceful way,” Omar said. “I think the opportunity to boycott, divest, sanction is the kind of the pressure that leads to that peaceful process.”

Omar also said she hoped Israeli voters would see Netanyahu’s “existence, his policies, his rhetoric” as “contradictory” to the peace process in the region. She cited a recent campaign promise by Netanyahu to annex large swaths of the West Bank that have been under Israeli control since 1967. The area would include the Jordan River Valley — the bread basket of a proposed Palestinian state and a vital element to proposed two-state solutions.

“For many of us in Congress, there has been a longstanding support for a two-state solution, and this annexation now is going to make sure that that peace process does not happen,” Omar said.
