Greene, who has indicated support for the QAnon conspiracy theory, attracted increased scrutiny in recent days after previous statements surfaced where she questioned whether a plane hit the Pentagon during the 9/11 terrorist attacks and claimed the 2018 California wildfires were started by a space laser controlled by a corporate network, including the Rothschild banking firm.

“I have no earthly clue whatsoever what would cause someone to believe such a thing," Hannity said on his Wednesday broadcast.

The conservative commentator also cited Greene’s remarks criticizing Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg, in which she called him a “coward” and claimed the mass shooting was a hoax used to advocate for gun reform legislation.

From my perspective, there is not a single conservative I know that shares those conspiratorial beliefs, or supports the action [of] confronting young people, claiming that a school shooting that happened didn't happen,” Hannity said.

“I don’t know a single conservative or a single Republican, frankly, that even knows what QAnon even is, let alone buys into whatever those beliefs are,” he added.

The Republican lawmakers point to past statements Omar has made, including remarks critical of Israel and suggestions that supporters were motivated by campaign donations.

Hannity also pointed to Omar’s previous remarks during Wednesday's show, adding that “if Democrats want to purge Taylor Greene from committees, then this same standard must be applied to them,” in a show of “fundamental fairness.”

Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, has condemned the GOP amendment as "a desperate smear rooted in racism, misogyny, and Islamophobia."
