Wasserman Schultz calls out Trump-supporting congressman for anti-Semitic tweet

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is demanding an apology from one of her Republican colleagues for using “derogatory, anti-Semitic sterotypes” on Twitter.

Wasserman Schultz, a Broward/Miami-Dade County Democrat, is calling out U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who is one of President Donald Trump’s most prominent supporters.

On Sunday, Jordan tweeted a response to a news account that U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., chairman of the Judiciary Committee planned to issue extensive document requests as part of its investigation into Trump.

Jordan scoffed at Nadler’s move, writing in part that “Nadler feeling the heat big time. Jumps to Tom $teyer’s conclusion — impeaching our President — before first document request.”

Democrats in the House recently condemned remarks from U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., that have been critical of Israel or anti-Semitic. They plan to consider a resolution on Wednesday in response to Omar’s latest comments, in which she suggested supporters of Israel are pushing “allegiance to a foreign country.”

Jordan is a founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.
