Rep. Ilhan Omar's tweet that said "It's all about the Benjamins" is drawing widespread criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike.

Top Democratic leaders in Congress rebuked Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar on Monday for a tweet that implied money drives U.S. politicians' support for Israel, prompting the freshman Democrat to publicly apologize.

In an extraordinary step, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders condemned a tweet Omar sent Sunday using the song lyric, "It's all about the Benjamins, baby" as hurtful and offensive.
