House Judiciary chairman, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), said that he had no issue with Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) controversial comments regarding the 9/11 terrorist attacks during an interview on CNN on Sunday.

Last week, video surfaced of Omar referring to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as an incident in which “some people did something.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Nadler, who represents the district in New York City where the 9/11 terrorist attacks occurred, if he found Omar’s comments offensive.

“No, I did not,” Nadler said. “She characterized it only in passing. She was talking about discrimination against Muslim Americans. And she just said that after that happened, it was used as an excuse for lots of discrimination and for withdrawal of civil liberties.”

“No, I did not take – I have had some problems with some of her other remarks, but not – but not with that one,” Nadler added.
