The group of four freshman House Democrats dubbed “the Squad” each had something to say Wednesday before the entire House voted along party lines to impeach President Trump.
In the case of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., it was the repeated shouting of “Stop it!” when House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy recounted a profane remark about President Trump that fellow Squad member Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., had uttered back in January.
On Wednesday, several journalists — including PBS Newshour senior reporter Daniel Bush, Daily Caller reporter Scott Morefield and others — identified Omar, who was not seen on camera — as the voice heard in the background as McCarthy addressed his fellow House members in the U.S. Capitol.
“What’s the problem?” Morefield wrote, referring to Omar. “Truth hurt?”
