Rep. Ilhan Omar is facing criticism for a tweet — in which she called out the influence of the pro-Israel lobby on American politicians — that some have deemed anti-Semitic.

The freshman Minnesota Democrat was commenting on Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who threatened to punish her and another Muslim lawmaker for pushing anti-Israel rhetoric. Replying to a tweet from journalist Glenn Greenwald, Omar suggested — with a Bad Boy reference — that certain U.S. politicians are pro-Israel because of financial influence.
