House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday Democrats are leaving open the option to potentially censure Rep. Lauren Boebert or remove her from her committee assignments as a dispute between her and "Squad" member Rep. Ilhan Omar continues to simmer.
"We're considering what action ought to be taken," Hoyer, D-Md., said when asked if Boebert, R-Colo., should be stripped of her committee assignments or censured.
Hoyer added that he didn't want to "prejudge" what actions Democrats will take against Boebert because they haven't had conversations about what they'll do yet.
The dispute started when Boebert was recently filmed telling supporters that she had a run-in with Omar, D-Minn., in a Capitol building elevator. She said she was getting in the elevator with a staffer when she saw a Capitol police officer running toward them "with fret all over his face" in an effort to stop the elevator door from closing.
