"I don't think our colleague is anti-Semitic", Pelosi said Friday, reiterating her previous defenses of Omar.

"I don't think this is just about comments by Congresswoman Omar, which I do not think were intentionally anti-Semitic". So instead of pointing a finger of guilt at the real racist, Ms. Omar, the Democrat legislation branded all American white males as being bad persons and left the real anti-Semitic, racist free of any charge.

The final vote on the resolution was 407 to 23, with 23 Republicans voting no, and all Democrats, including Omar, voting yes.

On Thursday, Pelosi helped push through a House resolution aimed at condemning "hate" with the support of Omar and other Democrats in Congress.

The House has passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other bigotry.

Manning later released a statement saying she "appeared before a secret grand jury after being given immunity for my testimony". Government prosecutor Tracy McCormick said Friday that they didn't want this, but that the situation could be resolved quickly.

In response, the Democratic party argued over whether Omar should be singled out and what other types of bias should be decried in the text of the House resolution.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi says that Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., wasn't being intentionally anti-Semitic, but she's usually pretty dead certain that President Trump's motives for his speech are the worst.

Omar has been criticized, including by top Democrats in Congress, for a series of tweets and statements in which she accused Israel of buying off members of Congress and said that pro-Israel members of have an "allegiance" to Israel.

Last march, Pelosi was pretty certain of the president's motives and intentions when she called an order on transgender military personnel a "hateful ban" that "is purpose-built to humiliate our fearless transgender members of the military who serve with honor and dignity". And that's what we have no place for - against anyone - in our country, and it is part of our values that we convey to the rest of the world.
