Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Www1.cbn.com: “CBN News Exclusive: Dan Crenshaw Says He and Trump Not Inciting Violence by Criticizing Ilhan Omar's 9/11 Dismissal”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In an exclusive interview with CBN News Tuesday, US Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) defended his reaction to Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar after she called 9/11 an event in which "some people did something."

Crenshaw and others had condemned Omar's statement delivered during a speech at a CAIR meeting in March.

"I saw it shared on social media and my first reaction was:  What really, again?" the first-term Texas congressman said.  "This is a pattern, right.  This is not a case of someone misspeaking at a certain point.  I think it's obvious that she feels a certain way about terrorism, about 9/11 in particular. And I don't want to attribute motivations, but it was dismissive. The way she referred to it was dismissive."

But Crenshaw was careful not to endorse the implication that some have made that Omar supports terrorism.

"I don't think she supports any kind of terrorism or anything like that, " he told CBN News. "But she did speak about it in a dismissive and disrespectful way. I clearly pointed that out. I said 'Hey, that's unbelievable. Why would you talk about it this way? If you are going to talk about it and you feel like you misspoke, then say you misspoke.  But she doesn't.  She doubles down. Maybe because she's perfectly fine with the way that came off."
