Representative Lauren Boebert delivered a fiery speech on the House floor Wednesday, slamming “Jihad Squad member” Ilhan Omar for funneling campaign cash to her husband and Eric Swalwell for ‘sleeping with a Chinese spy.’
Boebert (R-CO) made the shocking comments as she criticized a vote to censure GOP Representative Paul Gosar over his posting of an odd but harmless parody video showing the Arizona Republican striking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with cartoon swords.
Gosar would indeed be censured by the House and removed from his committee assignments over the video.
During her speech, Boebert made it clear she had disdain for Democrats wasting everybody’s time by debating and voting on such a ridiculous matter.
And she thoroughly eviscerated the majority party for not holding their own accountable.

Representative Lauren Boebert’s speech targeted several Democrats who have never been censured by the congressional body.
First up for a dressing down – Omar (D-MN) – whom Boebert joked about having – allegedly – married her brother, and for sending significant amounts of campaign cash to her latest husband.
“The Jihad Squad member from Minnesota has paid her husband, and not her brother-husband, the other one, over $1 million in campaign funds,” she said of Omar. “This member is allowed on the Foreign Affairs Committee while praising terrorists.”
This past June, Omar seemingly equated actions taken by the United States and Israel to those perpetrated by the Taliban and Hamas.
“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” she tweeted. “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”

Omar would later insist that she was speaking specifically about incidents regarding ICC (International Criminal Court) cases and was “in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.”
The Political Insider has consistently tracked reports of Omar funneling campaign cash to her ‘not brother-husband.’
A bombshell Axios report last December indicated that a woman by the name of Christine Fang (aka Fang Fang) “took part in fundraising activity for Rep. Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign” and interacted with the Congressman “at multiple events over the course of several years.”
Fang had allegedly served as a Chinese Intelligence operative with China’s Ministry of State Security.
