House Minority Whip Steve Scalise said Tuesday that congressional Democrats' condemnations of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) will continue to ring hollow unless party leadership removes her from the powerful Foreign Relations Committee.

Speaking with Sandra Smith, the Louisiana Republican said that it was good to hear some Democrats admonishing Omar for anti-Semitic remarks that referenced stereotypes about Jews and money and alluded to the America-Israel Public Affairs Committee allegedly paying off Republicans.

"She sits on the [House] Foreign Affairs Committee," Scalise said, adding that Omar "receives classified briefings on foreign policy [including] Israel."

"She should be removed," he said, calling it inappropriate for the 37-year-old Minneapolis lawmaker to make such controversial statements yet work in that capacity.

He called on Speaker Pelosi to "immediately" remove Omar from the committee.

Earlier on Fox News, Rep. Lee Zeldin, a Republican from Suffolk, N.Y., said that his caucus immediately removed Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) from all committee assignments after he made controversial remarks about white nationalism.

Zeldin, who is Jewish, echoed Scalise in blasting Omar for her own statements.

Omar has since offered an apology on Twitter.
