House Foreign Affairs chairman says he won't remove Omar from committee

“No, I’m not close to it,” Engel said when asked on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront” if he would remove Omar from the committee.

“First of all, it’s not up to me. This is done by the leadership. I don’t know that that would do anything except exacerbate the situation even more. I’m looking to get rid of anti-Semitism, not looking to punish anybody.”
