Freshmen Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) continued their verbal assault against Israel during a joint press conference held in St. Paul, MN where they invented stories about what they planned on their trip, threatened to cut aid to Israel, and pretended they knew nothing about the anti-Semitic group, Miftah, which was sponsoring their trip.
i24News "ClearCut" with Michelle Makori covered all sides of the story with Diplomatic Correspondent Mike Wagenheim explaining the implications in Israel, Senior Washington Correspondent Dan Raviv covering what was and wasn't said at the press conference and U.S. politics at play. Michelle Makori fact checks several of the false claims made the congresswomen.
