Ilhan Omar grills US Venezuela envoy on his human rights record

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar clashed with President Trump’s envoy to Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, in a congressional hearing Wednesday. Omar blasted what she suggested was his indefensible human rights record demanding to know why lawmakers should consider him a credible witness. Abrams was convicted in 1991 of withholding information during the Iran-Contra scandal

Did she forget that she's supposed to be American too?

I'm sure his being Jewish had nothing to do with her disrespectful behavior.

Good job for Omar to slam a Reagan Era official who organized “resistance” groups to overthrow foreign governments. In case most people do not understand why Abrams is being slammed, back in the 80s he oversaw a US-funded militant group in El Salvador who had been confirmed to carry out atrocities against civilians including massacres and rape. Abrams said that the newly created government in ES as a result of this militant group is his proudest achievement. He was later indicted for his role in this incident and was guilty of all charges. The only reason he is running around a free man was because of pardons passed on by HW Bush which also included another fellow criminal Oliver North of Black Ops II fame and is now the new president of the NRA. Considering what plans the US has for Venezuela, I find it a breath of fresh air to hold these people accountable.
