As we told you Wednesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar has accused the U.S. of “bullying” the Nicolas Maduro regime in Venezuela. Omar said back in February that the Trump administration, which has joined other countries to officially recognize Juan Guaidó as the interim president, is staging a “coup attempt” in Venezuela.
