Pelosi Says She Talked With Sergeant-at-Arms About Omar’s Safety Following Trump Tweet
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she talked with the House Sergeant-at-Arms, the House official in charge of security, about the safety of Rep. Ilhan Omar and said she wanted to make sure a security assessment was being conducted. She said she wanted "to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff" following President Donald Trump's tweet on Friday. "They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces," Pelosi said in a statement. Omar has had death threats against her in the past because of some of her comments.
