House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has committed to taking action to address anti-Muslim remarks Colorado congresswoman Lauren Boebert made suggesting that Representative Ilhan Omar posed a threat of terrorist violence, the Minnesota congresswoman said Sunday.

Pelosi made a “promise to me that she will take care of this, and I believe her,” Omar, one of three Muslims in Congress, said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
