Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) appeared on Keith Olbermann’s Countdown Wednesday night to discuss Rep. Peter King’s latest hearing on radical Islam.
During the hearing, King said that the Somalia-base Al-Shebab terror group was “a growing threat” to the United States. Ellison said on Countdown that not a single witness at the hearing backed up King’s claim.
King earlier denied a request by Ellison to testify at the hearing. Ellison is the sole Muslim in Congress and represents a district that includes the largest Somali community in the U.S.
Olbermann concluded the interview by saying: “Congressman Peter King is un-American and frankly — forgive the language — he’s an asshole.”
