Former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik argued Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is “infatuated” with terrorist groups such as al Qaeda while he was a guest on Fox News host Sean Hannity's show.

Omar has been criticized for describing the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something” when she spoke to Muslim advocacy group Council on American-Islamic Relations last month.

According to Kerik, Omar is obsessed with designated terrorist groups and should be removed from office.

“She is infatuated with al Qaeda, with Hamas, Hezbollah. She was at CAIR at a fundraiser, she was the keynote speaker at a fundraiser for CAIR, which according to the United Arab Emirates, an Arab nation, they are a terrorist organization,” Kerik said during his interview Monday night with Hannity.

“You can't do that and be a member of Congress. I personally think she should be removed from Congress,” Kerik said. “She should be voted out for sure, but she shouldn't be on the Foreign Relations Committee.”

Kerik was sentenced to several years in prison in 2010 after he pleaded guilty to eight felony charges.

During Omar’s address to CAIR, Omar said the group was “founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

Among those people who have criticized Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, President Trump shared a video on Twitter with the caption "WE WILL NEVER FORGET!" that included footage from the 9/11 attacks.

Some Democrats have defended Omar and argued that Trump’s tweet could encourage violence against the congresswoman. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requested Capitol Police to increase her security and Omar blamed Trump's tweet for a spike in death threats in a statement late Sunday.

CAIR is an advocacy group with a focus on Muslim civil rights and has denied ties to terrorist organizations, calling such accusations an Islamophobic stereotype. They are headquartered in Washington, D.C., on Capitol Hill with regional offices throughout the country.

The United Arab Emirates designated CAIR a terrorist organization in 2014, joining groups such as al Qaeda and the Islamic State. The group was founded in 1994 — not after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks as Omar claimed — and was labeled an “unindicted co-conspirator or joint venturer” in the Holy Land Foundation case in 2009. The Justice Department convicted the Islamic charity of providing material support to designated terrorist organization Hamas.
