Ilhan Omar Tries to Back Away From Defending Officials Who Targeted Trump

Ilhan Omar Tries to Back Away From Defending Officials Who Targeted Trump

(AmericanProsperity.com) – Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) got into a Twitter spat this weekend, which she quickly chose to backpedal from. It all began when long-time critic of President Donald Trump and former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director John Brennan remarked on the recent death of a top Iranian scientist.

On November 27, Brennan’s controversial tweet hit the web:

American journalist Glenn Greenwald quickly confronted Brennan’s words on Twitter, wondering if the “FBI should investigate Brennan for Logan Act violations?” The Logan Act was passed in 1799 and prevents individuals from negotiating with foreign governments without US authorization.

This is when Omar disagreed with Greenwald:

Omar and Greenwald continued their debate, leading to Omar distancing from her defense of Brennan:

Greenwald went on to publish an opinion piece on his blog about the Twitter disagreement and his disapproval of the Logan Act.

While Ilhan Omar may have chosen to defend the wrong person, she quickly separated herself from the whole situation. Instead, she spun it as a “debate” that “should happen more often in a free society.”
