Rashida Tlaib Slapped With $2 Million Lawsuit For Alleged Battery, Assault Of Laura Loomer
“Hate-filled anti-Semitic” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is being sued for $2 million after the freshman congresswoman attacked investigative reporter Laura Loomer during a campaign event in 2018.
The conservative non-profit Freedom Watch and its general counsel Larry Klayman, a former federal prosecutor, filed the complaint on behalf of Loomer on Friday, charging Tlaib with assault and battery and religious discrimination.

Tlaib, who adamantly supports boycotting Israel and has been repeatedly slammed by President Donald Trump for “hating Jews,” is seen assaulting Loomer, a female Jewish journalist, during a rally during her Congressional run.
Freedom watch detailed the alleged assault in a press release announcing the lawsuit.
