    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said on Saturday that
    when he is speaker of the House next year he plans to remove Democratic
    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over
    her "antisemitic" comments.

    "We watch antisemitism grow, not just on our campuses, but we watched
    it grow In the halls of Congress," he said at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s 2022 leadership meeting in Las Vegas.

    "I promised you last year that as speaker she will no longer be on
    Foreign Affairs, and I’m keeping that promise," he said to cheers from
    the audience.
