Ted Lieu: Rep. Omar Shouldn’t Be Singled Out in the Resolution Condemning Anti-Semitism

‘We should condemn anti-Semitism in all of its forms’

JACKSON: "Before I let you go, congressman, I have to ask you about this resolution that will be brought up tomorrow related to anti-Semitism and, as you know, related to Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. How do you plan to vote? Have you decided?"
LIEU: "I have. We should condemn all forms of religious bigotry whether it’s against Muslims or Jews or Catholics. I intend to vote yes on this resolution."
JACKSON: "Congressman Omar was not singled out in this resolution. Should she have been in your view?"
LIEU: "No. I read the resolution. It’s a resolution condemning anti-Semitism. That's why I'm going to vote and support it, because we should condemn anti-Semitism in all of its forms."
