Well, we all knew this was going to happen.
Some whacko threatens the life of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and it goes right back to comments made by Rep. Boebert (R-CO).
It is the perfect set-up for House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) to strip Boebert of her committee assignments.
Threatened My Life
Boebert came under significant fire after video of a local appearance made its way around social media.
In addition to having called Omar a member of the “Jihad squad,” Boebert characterized Omar as a terrorist.
Boebert and Omar got into it again when Boebert called Omar and Omar reportedly hung up on her.
Boebert then posted about the call on her social media accounts.
Omar claims this call was a direct result of that video…
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) plays a horrific death threat she received following Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-CO) recent Islamophobic attacks on her.

Whether this call was staged or not is irrelevant because it is the perfect weapon to use against Boebert to have her committee assignments stripped.
However, I would say that call needs to be traced and the caller identified as soon as possible to make sure the call was legitimate and that whacko gets prosecuted and tossed into jail.
If the call is found to be a set-up, which I am not discounting at this point, Omar should immediately be censured, stripped of her assignments, and removed from office as quickly as possible.
This is one we will keep an eye out on over the next few days to see if that caller is actually tracked down and prosecuted.
