Tlaib’s con­stant calls for cease­fire frus­trate fel­low Democ­rats: ‘We don’t get to have our own facts’

“She spread a claim by Hamas that is not true, that has led to threats to Amer­i­can mil­i­tary per­son­nel and diplo­mats around the world, and con­tin­ues to throw gaso­line on that fire,” Schnei­der said in an inter­view with the Wall Street Jour­nal. “It’s impor­tant that all of us call out evil. We may have dif­fer­ences of opin­ion, but we don’t get to have our own facts.”
