Pelosi says Dems untainted by anti-Semitism slams amid Omar-Trump feud

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., defended her party amid claims of anti-Semitism leveled against freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., saying there was “no taint” of anti-Jewish sentiment among Democrats.

In an interview with CNN on Tuesday while in Dublin, Pelosi said she does not believe that Omar is anti-Semitic, and she slammed President Trump for accusing the Minnesota lawmaker of such prejudice.

“We have no taint of that in the Democratic Party,” Pelosi said. “And just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean we take that bait.”

Omar, who took office in January, has quickly become one of the most controversial members of the new crop of Democratic lawmakers in the House – she has proved to be a target for conservative pundits, while causing headaches for fellow Democrats who have had to come to her defense.
